GQA has been writing qualifications for over 25 years and around 6 years ago introduced a Continued Competency qualification for the Automotive Glazing industry to help them satisfy legislation and customer demand for proof of current competence. As most of you will know there is a requirement for most of those involved in survey and or installation of windows and doors to hold proof of competence, this is very often done by achievement of a GQA qualification.
DCLG’s requirement is for periodic reassessment and to help candidates, employers and centres we have developed a suite of Competency Update qualifications for Installers, Surveyors and those who carry out both roles, these qualifications ensure individuals are compliant with the rules for both CSCS and DCLG. The session will be jointly run by representatives from 2 GQA Centres, GFTS and Fit For Trade, who will explain their approach to promoting the qualifications, dealing with objections and delivery methods. Come along and get involved in the session and share best practice and ideas.
