GQA Level Two NVQ Diploma In Trowel Occupations (Construction): Total Support Training - 1547

This qualification is aimed at those who are involved in setting out and erecting masonry structures onsite working from drawings and specifications. The structures could be brick and blockwork or local materials.

It is not expected that candidates working in this industry all do the same activities, however, candidates will need to prove competence in cavity wall structures, blockwork structures, solid wall structures, door and window openings and joint finishes.

Those taking the qualification must also prove knowledge and competence in working at heights, calculating quantities and wastage, use of powered and hand tools and equipment. All work completed must be done in accordance with building regulations and industry recognised safe working practices, including the disposal of waste. This will be achieved with observations and training workshops on knowledge.
