Wood Occupations (Bench Joinery or Site Carpentry) CSkills Awards NVQ Level 2 Diploma

On-Site Assessment & Training helps experienced workers get the qualifications to prove that they can do the job, by turning existing skills and experience into a recognised construction qualification. It takes into account the skills you already have so you only need to train toward the things you don’t know how to do, and the whole qualification can be assessed on-site so no work time is lost by attending College.
