When i went for my 'Advanced', there was 4 categories available (2000), there was 'Advanced course' 10 days, being taught. Then 'Advanced course with NVQ 3 providing portfolio' (10 days). Assessed route of Entry (ASRE) being given the drawings, and assessed on completion. (5 days) plus test paper. And finally ASRE with the NVQ 3 (providing portfolio).

A lot of the lads there, (No disrespect). Wanted in and out ASAP with the pass. By all means i am not 'Mother Teressa' but i went for the 'Whole hog' ASRE with NVQ 3, and the portfolio bullsh1t, as the cost was the same for any of the aforementioned disciplines, it was a right chow for the 'Portfolio' however, i am glad now i took that route.

I have a letter from the CITB Construction Skills stating that if your card says NVQ on it then it means that the holder started scaffolding training after 1996 when it became a mandatory requirement.
Therefore we can assume that the NVQ holders are relatively new to the game with 14 years behind them apart from the ones who had been in the game for years but hadnt got a card.

give a bit info about yourself then . where you from , who you worked for .you will get a lot more respect on here if you were more open . and another thing the only thing any scaffolding instructor learnt me was that scaffolders are bigger bitches than women .by the way could you tell me the percentage of people failing your cousres . and do you agree that the only way you can be a scaffolder is if you have money for crap course .if you only give me one straight answer make it this one . are scaffold courses actually pass and fail or just pay up and pass . i already know the answer i just want to see if your big enough to admit it
