Short courses are aimed at both operatives and specialists alike. They are great for filling gaps in knowledge and skills and when combined with a period of assessment can lead to a Level 2 Vocational Qualification (VQ) in Applied Waterproof Membranes-Single Ply Roofing.
Short courses vary in length from half day, full day to two-three days and can be delivered at one of SPRA’s approved training facilities or at client’s premsis subject to a risk assessment by SPRA. Minimum numbers are required to deliver these courses.
All short courses are covered as part of the Specialist Applied-skills programme.
When short courses are combined with a period of on site assessment, the time taken to gain a Level 2 NVQ Waterproofing – Single Ply Membranes should be between 3 and 9 months. Operatives will then be able to apply for a blue Skilled Worker CSCS card which demonstrates your competence to work on site.
This will depend on the short courses selected. CITB grant funding is available for registered companies.
Practical training will be done on model roofs/rigs and the knowledge will be covered using various means such as learning packages and resources, lectures and self-study.
Short courses are aimed at:
For operatives wishing to achieve the VQ, a SPRA qualified assessor will conduct a short interview and complete a skills scan with the learner to establish where the gaps are in relation to the Single Ply Roofing VQ and recommend a training and assessment package.
