NVQ Training Offers
FIS members can take advantage of a range of training offers available at discounted prices or fully funded offers from our Approved Training Providers (ATP’s). These offers will help you get your employees or LOSCs qualified to an NVQ Level 2 and obtain the Blue Skilled Worker’ CSCS card.
If you are not a member of FIS but are interested in taking advantage of the offers
To get a Blue Skilled Worker’ card you must have an NVQ Level 2 qualification. There are two way to achieve this depending on your experience and the trades you are working in:
Experienced Worker Practical Assessment (EWPA) Route
EWPA is a timed, practical assessment for highly skilled experienced workers with a minimum of 5 years of experience. It is usually delivered in one day at one of our ATP’s assessment centres or onsite.
On-Site Assessment & Training (OSAT) Route
OSAT is delivered in your place of work by a dedicated trade assessor, combining knowledge and practical assessment. This route is for skilled, experienced workers with a minimum of 2-3 years of experience.
Organisations that are in scope to CITB may be eligible to claim up to £600 back from the CITB Short-Period Qualification Grants
