NVQ Levels 2 – 6

FreIvan now delivers NVQs for those who are looking to advance in the construction industry. The NVQs available will allow you to gain the relevant qualification and CSCS card in order for you to make the next step in your development.
Anyone looking seeking to further their career in the construction industry. A Construction NVQ gets you the CSCS card you need to take the next step in your career. Show employers that you are competent and that you meet the industry standard for the role you want.
Higher level CSCS cards, and many higher-level affiliate card programmes require an NVQ, and most construction employers require such a card before you can be hired. Therefore, attaining the right level of Construction NVQ can be crucial in advancing your career in the construction industry.
Don't miss a day’s pay by being assessed for an NVQ level on site, as you work. We send out an assessor to observe and ask questions during a typical day, and you will be judged on your knowledge, performance and experience.
Earning NVQ levels is really about knowing how to do job well and safely. Especially at the lower levels, as little as three years on the job experience is often enough to qualify you.
As you get up to the higher levels, study and revision at home of an evening becomes more and more important.
Our construction, training and NVQ experts will be happy to meet with you at our office to discuss your NVQ needs and advise you on any aspects you feel you might need help with.
Much of that is up to you. We have the assessor visit you at work between 2 and five times, on dates arranged at your (and your work's) convenience. Lower level NVQs typically require very few visits, whereas higher levels will require more. The whole process typically takes ten weeks or less.
Yes. Once your registration fee is paid, you may apply for a Red (Trainee) or Red (Experienced Worker) CSCS card. Extra fees may apply.
Possibly. If you possess the necessary training and experience to pass a higher-level evaluation, you can be assessed for any NVQ level initially, and then progress from there.
If you do not achieve the required credits to complete the NVQ, you will not be awarded one. However, you may always be reassessed at a later time, and it is often possible to take additional class units to obtain the necessary credits. We will be available to help you identify any weak points, and to help you address them.
