National Vocational Qualifications (NVQs) are work-related, competence based qualifications. They reflect the skills and knowledge needed to carry out a job effectively and show that a candidate is competent in the area of work the NVQ framework represents. This NVQ is particularly useful for you if you are presently working in the nuclear industry or would like to enter the area of decommissioning. No matter what industry training you have had, this NVQ 2 is the recognised qualification and may well become the qualification that you need in order to perform multidisciplinary decommissioning work. We also offer this as an e-learning course for international customers. Click here for more information.
