Rowan Jones is GQA First to Complete L3 Surveyor NVQ Update

Rowan Jones is an experienced surveyor with Nationwide Windows & Doors and has been working as such for 7 years.  He originally completed the NVQ in Surveying around 6 years ago, but in order to ensure compliance for site work, the qualification needs to be renewed every 5 years.  Thanks to the company’s GQA status, if you are a practising surveyor, like Rowan, you can complete the Competency Update – a much shorter course that only takes a week and means you don’t have to re-do the entire qualification.  The update covers critical areas such as health and safety, surveying practices and also consists of an onsite observation of Rowan surveying a property including windows and doors.  In support, Rowan also had to provide evidence of work and a current CV.  As an added bonus, the Health & Safety paper Rowan passed with flying colours, also satisfies requirements for Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) – a must for any site worker. All the training and assessment was delivered by the company’s in house GQA approved training centre, and Rowan is one of the first in the country to complete this course under GQA.
