Course Overview

This Plant Operation course sets out to produce plant operators trained to operate a specific range of machines. This NVQ is a competence-based qualification which are designed to provide learners with an opportunity to demonstrate, in a real workplace environment.

If you are in plant operations but don't have the qualification, this route may be what you are looking for. If you and have a very good general knowledge in all areas of plant operation, then come along to Funding Connect to meet with one of our advisors to discuss your route to gaining a Plant Operations qualification. A short meeting will put you well on your way to obtaining your NVQ Plant Operations, a requirement for any construction site worker.

With the requirement for all site workers to hold skilled worker cards, the need for experienced tradesmen to gain NVQs has never been more important. Without the right qualification, you will be unable to gain access to site to undertake your work as a Plant Operator.

This course is ideal for operatives who are working as a Plant operative in the construction. Our qualification is designed to assess the competence and knowledge of plant operatives across a range of occupational routes. The exact title of the qualification achieved depends on the type of plant you use.

The qualification allows you to select units which apply specifically to your plant operations work.

How you will be assessed?

The qualification is delivered on-site by one of our specialist NVQ Assessors. The assessment is being made via the portfolio of evidence. A high level of support will also be provided to help you complete the NVQ requirements.
