One of the most vital roles on-site is the slinger signaller. Requiring competence, diligence, and acute concentration as the eyes and ears of the crane operator, they work alongside lifting teams to provide safe direction and supervision while ensuring the safety of any other workers or site visitors in the area.
This NOCN CSkills awarded Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Controlling Lifting Operations - Slinger Signaller qualification enables delegates to upgrade their CPCS or NPORS-CSCS trained operator card with an NVQ Diploma in Controlling Lifting Operations, certifying competence as a slinger signaller.
The qualification enables delegates to show they are a competent operator in controlling lifting operations.
We assess this NVQ over two on-site assessments while the delegate is carrying out their day-to-day duties. Rather than producing a portfolio over time, our specifically assigned assessors gather evidence in the form of photographs, videos, method statements and professional discussions to take forward for examination.
To pass this qualification, delegates must successfully complete and achieve all four Mandatory Units.
