This qualification has been developed specifically for those who carry out both surveying and installation work of windows, doors and/or conservatories. This qualification is at Level 3, and should be taken by those who are experienced and capable of dealing with a wide range of problems and situations, including working with installations that have complex requirements. Candidates may take a technical or supervisory role, particularly in relation to less-experienced colleagues, they will also work closely with customers/clients and have well-developed customer service skills. Sound knowledge of Building Regulations and other relevant legislation will also be required to meet the requirements of the qualification.
At the time of development, achievement of this single qualification will meet the current requirements of the Minimum Technical Competencies (MTC) scheme for both Installation and Surveying and will also allow individuals to apply for the relevant CSCS card.
GQA qualifications in Installation alone are available at Levels 2 & 3 and there is a Surveyor only qualification at Level 3 for those not involved in Installation work. The achievement of one of these qualifications will satisfy the current MTC and CSCS requirements for the relevant occupational role.
