This qualification has been developed to give individuals an understanding of the principle aspects of window and door installation. The qualification has been written as knowledge only so there is no need for candidates to complete practical tasks.
The qualification is at Level 1, making it suitable for a wide range of people including those new to, or considering entering the Window and Door Installation Industry, as well as those who would just like to know more about the Industry. The qualification is also suitable for those who may have been involved in the installation of windows and doors for a longer period of time without achieving formal qualifications.
There are GQA NVQ qualifications available for both the actual Installation and Surveying of windows and doors, with Installer qualifications at Level 2 and 3 and a Surveyor qualification at Level 3.
Qualifications across the UK have different levels. Click here for an explanation
