NVQ Level 2

NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Construction and Cabling Operations when Building an External Fibre Network

This is a new Level 2 National Qualification Diploma developed by our ITC in-house specialist Design Team and partner company Premium Construction Consultancy (PCC), in association with GQA Qualifications, to meet the needs of Industry and people working in Fibre Networks Infrastructure build activities.

This NVQ L2 qualification will be delivered in a working environment so candidates should be already in employment. The qualification is aimed specifically at those people carrying out general construction, poling and cabling operations when building an external fibre network.

The modular nature of the qualification will give candidates the opportunity to develop skills and competence in a range of network build activities, and to demonstrate craft-competency and under-pinning knowledge in those skills.

What is Required from Candidates?

GQA qualifications are made up of a number of Units that have a credit value (credits). These Credits must be achieved in the correct combination from Mandatory and Optional Units: the qualification has 2 Mandatory Units and 3 Optional Units and additionally Candidates will select the required credits from one of 7 Pathways.
