City & Guilds NVQ Level 2 and Level 3 (2882-02 and 2882-03)
The City & Guilds 2882 NVQ or CBQ as it is now called is an industry recognised standard qualification that will give you credibility within the industry. The CBQ is a “work based” qualification, which means that you won’t have to take time off work to complete the qualification. You will need to complete a portfolio based on work that you are currently doing or have completed within the last twelve months. One of our qualified assessors will visit you on site and assess you normal working practices. There are no exams to sit. You can start off with a Level 2 Certificate and then progress onto the Level 3 Diploma Qualification.
Requirement for Qualifications
At present there is no actual requirement to become professionally qualified. However, European Norms are currently being drawn up that will require all members of staff working in the security industry be suitably trained, qualified and possibly licenced to continue to work in the industry. There will be no “grandfather” rights, so everyone will need to obtain a qualification to continue to work in the industry.
