who is this qualification for?

The Level 3 Installer competency update qualification requires you to prove you have the level of skills and knowledge expected at Level 3.
There are a number of tasks seen as being appropriately challenging for a Level 3 Installer, so your assessment must be completed based on one of the following:
• Replacement bay window installation
• Conservatory installation
• Replacement Box sash installation
Your Assessor must observe you carrying out the installation in its entirety to meet the job specification, follow safe working practices and comply with all relevant Building Regulations and other legislation or accepted Industry Codes of Practice.
You will also be required to provide evidence of your knowledge and understanding of Health and Safety, best practice in Installation and
current Building Regulations.
During the observation your Assessor will be asking additional questions to supplement the written answers provided.
Please note the qualification is only open to individuals who already hold a Fenestration Installation qualification. Also to ensure Installers are familiar with current relevant Building Regulations candidates must have achieved either unit BR2 or FIS1 in the previous qualification or complete FIS3 as part of this qualification.
