To achieve the qualification candidates must gather naturally occurring work based evidence which would include some or all of the following:

  • Daily/weekly plant checks signed by the operator and manager or fitter
  • Method Statements/Risk Assessments specific to the operator
  • Copies of CPCS card and any relevant training certificates

Any other documentation which is agreed as being valid by the assessor and candidate
Once the candidate has gathered the above evidence and when they feel ready to be assessed, one of our assessors will visit them at work on-site and observe them carrying out their normal work activities.

As part of the assessment process you will be required to take part in a Q&A session with your assessor.

Once our assessor is satisfied that the candidate has provided sufficient evidence they will be passed for verification and certification.
