It’s often said that overnight success requires years of hard work, and if anyone is well-placed to appreciate that, it’s our team here at YTA!
After all, as a highly respected NOCN Cskills-approved construction training centre in Yorkshire, we have seen so many students complete our courses and start successful careers – and for that matter, take existing careers to the next level.
This brings us neatly onto the subject of our carpentry & joinery NVQ Level 2 courses – and more specifically, the Experienced Worker Practical Assessment (EWPA) option that we present to those wishing to attain the Cskills Awards NVQ Level 2 Carpentry Diploma in Wood Occupations (Construction) – Site Carpentry QUA900.
This qualification is an especially significant one because it’s the one that, if you are a joiner, will allow you to secure the blue skilled worker CSCS card, so that you can actually work as a skilled professional on-site.
And with us, you could attain this invaluable diploma in just a day… provided that you already have five or more years’ carpentry experience.
You could be just one practical assessment away from this great qualification
The principle behind the EWPA route – which we also offer for wall and floor tilers, bricklayers and plasterers – is that if you already have the necessary knowledge and skills to do the job, you should hardly need to go through a longer course, just to gain the qualification required to do that job.
Instead, the EWPA uses a combination of practical assessment, professional discussion and witness testimonies to ascertain that your skills and knowledge are at a level meriting this important qualification.
The site carpentry NVQ itself includes three essential units covering general workplace safety, efficient work practices, and the movement and handling of resources.
But you can also support your effort to gain the diploma by adding three optional units from a range of five. These include in relation to the installation of first fixing and second fixing components, the erection of structural carcassing components, the maintenance of non-structural carpentry work, and the setup and use of transportable cutting and shaping machines.
