Swish is offering their Approved installers the opportunity to gain a recognised qualification in Roofline installation. Swish has partnered with a training and qualifications provider who can now offer Approved Installers a number of routes to an NVQ Level 2 or equivalent qualification.
NW Training has been training PVC roofline and fenestration installers for more than 5 years. They specialise in putting together training packages that suit busy installers who don't want to spend a lot of time away from the job.
Training helps to raise standards, while qualifications help to demonstrate your competence to your customers. With a recognised qualification there are opportunities to:
Improve your sales value and margin
Standardise the installation processes
Improve your company's reputation
Undertake local government work
Undertake Green Deal related work
NW Training is offering three routes to obtaining a roofline installation qualification. Two are funding routes to a full NVQ Level 2 qualification and the third is an OSCAR, a day's assessment that is based on the NVQ Level 2 system. Both qualifications are recognised as proof of competence by an increasing number of bodies such as TrustMark.
If you are interested in finding out more information or in taking up this opportunity please contact NW Training on 01942 233669.
It is possible to recoup much of the cost of the NVQ training programmes through the CITB Levy scheme, and the OSCAR represents a low cost and value for money certification process.
