NVQ Qualifications from Ellard

NVQ website


Procedure for NVQ Qualification

The engineer must have passed their Health & Safety test to become fully qualified. This can be arranged using the CITB websiteTraining material is available also from their website at http://citbstore.pearsonvue.com/default.asp

This can be completed before or during the NVQ process.

At the start of the NVQ a visit to the company’s premises is required. This is to register and enrol the engineers for the NVQ, ideally this will coincide with an on site observation.  They will need to supply a C.V., N.I. number, previous employment history and give examples of door types installed/serviced or repaired.  A registration fee at this stage of £77.25 is required to be paid to Construction Skills for the registration.  The registration process normally takes 2 weeks.

Once this has taken place our assessors need to conduct 2 – 3 on site observations (this will depend on the knowledge of the engineer)

A work based recorder will need to be appointed by the company.  More information can be found here;



We will need to have a contact to liaise with, regarding attending site with the engineers for the on site observations. We will collate previous work sheets. This is used as evidence in the engineers file. After the on site observations are complete we will need to see the engineer again to conduct a recorded interview.  The recorded interview will include items such as site safety, fire extinguishers and on site problems that could occur while installing or servicing/repairing a door.

The portfolio will be signed off by the engineer, the work based recorder and Ellard and then it will be forwarded to the Construction Skills for checking and authenticating, after approximately 6 weeks the N.V.Q award will be issued.
