    Once they have completed their NVQ their card will then last 5 years but is simply renewed by a Construction Skills Operative touch screen health & safety test and will run for a further five years.

    A CITB grant from £400 to £488 is available for companies registered with the Construction Industry Training Board.

    Delegates should inform their trainer if they have any serious health issues, physical problems, special considerations or are taking any medication, which may create difficulties in undertaking elements of this training course.

    The duration of a Level 2 NVQ varies depending on the candidate, their level of experience and the work they are undertaking. We advise that the majority of NVQ Level 2's are completed between 2 and 6 months from induction.
