There is a growing need for fibre and data engineers to hold a CSCS Gold Card – Communication Installer Team Leader. Not only because the initial provisional Green Cards will start to expire in January 2015 but because engineers need to demonstrate their competence by holding a CSCS Gold Card – Communications Installer Team Leader.
Employers need to consider if their workforce have the necessary skills to be eligible to apply for a CSCS Gold Card. More and more construction sites are demanding CSCS cards. There is also an increasing requirement when completing tenders to demonstrate that engineers are in possession of CSCS Gold Cards. It also makes it easier for a business to know that they can send any engineer to any location with out the need to be accompanied by a supervisor.
The problem that businesses and engineers have is that they might have spent 20 years working with copper and fibre but they don’t actually possess the necessary Level 3 qualification to make them eligible for a CSCS Gold Card – Communications Installer Team Leader.
So how can we help?
We offer the Level 3 Diploma in ICT Professional Competence which enables engineers to apply for a CSCS Gold Card (Communications Installer Team Leader).
This course is completely online and engineers need to build a portfolio of competence. As it is fully online engineers just require a laptop / PC, internet connection and a means of capturing evidence in the workplace.
We offer two pathways
- Fibre Pathway
- Non Fibre Pathway
Engineers are required to collect evidence for their portfolio. Evidence is a mixture of online questions and answers, worksheets, collecting products of work, videos and voice files.
If you would like more information or would like a demonstration of the course then please contact us.
How does it work?
Engineers access our online eLearning / ePortfolio.
In their course there will be a number of units relating to their specific pathway. Each unit has a mixture of learning materials and portfolio requirements.
Engineers need to build their portfolio of evidence using work products, videos and voice files and questions and answer worksheets.
Our assessors will then map the evidence to the course standards. Once all standards have been met the engineer will have achieved the qualification and a certificate will be posted to their address.
