Controlling Lifting Operations NVQ

SB Skills Solutions now offer the Level 5 NVQ Diploma in Controlling Lifting Operations.

Course Overview:

This programme is aimed at individuals who hold a red CPCS card and need to achieve the relevant NVQ in order to convert to a Blue CPCS Competent Operator Card.

To achieve the qualification candidates must gather naturally occurring work based evidence which would include some or all of the following:

– Customer correspondence, enquiry & site visit request forms
– Initial site visit drawings and any related specific paperwork/photographs
– Method Statements/Risk Assessments, Job Sheets, Time Sheets, Crane Duty Charts
– Copies of CPCS card and any relevant training certificates
– Any other documentation which is agreed as being valid by the assessor and candidate

Once the candidate has gathered the above evidence and when they feel ready to be assessed, one of our assessors will visit them at work on-site and observe them carrying out their normal work activities. Once our assessor is satisfied that the candidate has provided sufficient evidence they will be passed for verification and certification.
