First ARCA candidates to receive NVQ certificates

ARCA is pleased to announce that three candidates from Rhodar have received their certificates for successfully completing the NVQ Level 2 Diploma for asbestos removal operatives.

To gain this qualification the operatives undertook on-site assessments to demonstrate their abilities to the ARCA assessor, so providing actual evidence of their competency. Following this the ARCA assessor produced a portfolio of evidence for each candidate which were then submitted to the CITB National Specialists Accredited Centre (NSAC) for verification.NVQ certificates

“Congratulations to Jake, Gary and Chris on gaining their NVQ Diploma,” said Satish Patel, Training Manager for ARCA.

“After a successful pilot we offer this NVQ to all our members to support CSCS card applications and also support members who pay the CITB levy as they can apply to the CITB for grants. My thanks to Steve Hyatt, from NSAC, for his support during the development of our assessment strategy.”

Peter Humphries, Regional Director at Rhodar, stated, “The feedback I received from my operatives was very positive. They commented that the assessment process was undertaken in a supportive manner, and the ARCA assessor put them at ease throughout the theory and practical on-site assessments.”
