This qualification is aimed at those who are involved in Roofing, more specifically in installing one or both of roof tiles
and/or slates on site working from drawings and specifications. The qualification is at level 2 although some units may
be at different levels and could be taken by those who are fully trained to deal with routine assignments and who require
minimum supervision in undertaking the job, but is equally suitable for someone relatively new to the industry. All work
completed must be carried out in accordance with Building Regulations and Industry recognised safe working practices,
including the disposal of waste.
The qualification is structured to ensure that there is a high degree of flexibility within the units available and will allow
employees from companies of all sizes and specialisms equal opportunity to complete, by having separate pathways for
those whose work involves roof slates and/or tiles. The qualification consists of 3 mandatory units (10 credits) and 3
pathways. Candidates must complete all mandatory units and the relevant credits from the selected pathway(s). The total
credit value of the Roof Tiler qualification is 61 credits, Roof Slater is 56 credits and the Roof Slater and Tiler is 86 credits.
