New option for steel erector NVQ assessments

Posted on by in News

The development of the Constructional Steelwork Site Operations NVQ Level 2, which covers steel erection, metal decking and stud welding, has been held back due to the lack of accredited training centres and the availability of qualified assessors.

The BCSA’s Health & Safety Manager, Pete Walker, commented: “Some BCSA members have got around the problem by working directly with the centres and training their own people as assessors.”

A further organisation, TTE Technical Training Group, is now carrying out NVQ assessments for experienced workers at many locations around the UK and Ireland. Companies with steel erectors that are in need of an NVQ On Site Assessment, to enable them to comply with the requirements of the CSCS card scheme should contact: Russell Coleman at TTE, Middlesbrough, tel: 01642 462266 or email

The NVQ options available for assessment are: Constructional Steelwork Site Operations NVQ Level 2, Constructing Capital Plant Steel Structures – Erecting NVQ Level 3, and Moving Loads NVQ Level 3.
