Issued to either new entrant trainees or those with experience wishing to up-skill as follows:

  • Those without prior experiences who are registered for an NVQ/SVQ or QCF aligned NVQ Diploma at Level 2 or 3 (but who have not yet achieved the qualification) and are employed in the plumbing and mechanical engineering services industry.
  • Those who have experience of similar work in other industrial sectors, which their employer believes suits them for training for employment in the plumbing sector and who are registered for an NVQ/SVQ or QCF aligned NVQ Diploma at Level 2 or 3 (but who have not yet achieved the qualification).

Prior to issue of a Trainee card, applicants must either:

  • Provide evidence that they have completed the appropriate Health and Safety units from the NVQ/SVQ or NVQ Diploma Health and Safety units.
