Course administration

Once your course date is confirmed, we require each candidate to complete a course registration form outlining their qualifications and experience. You will be asked to bring evidence of your qualification with you on the day of the course.

On completion of the course all candidates will be issued with a Certificate of Attendance and where we have evidence of skill level to NVQ Level 2, the Caparol Manufacturer's Competency Card will also be issued on the day. It is also possible to send us your NVQ Level 2 qualification after the course or when it has been achieved and we will then issue you your manufacturer's competency card.

Please note that the course requires a good understanding of English. We can accommodate the course in other languages, please email or call 01785 811191 to discuss your requirements.

Courses are supported by leading construction training and quality bodies and as such, successful completion can be used as evidential support towards achieving the required industry standard PAS2030: NVQ level 2 qualification in Insulation and Building Treatments.
