Default i need advice

i have the SVQ level 2 in scaffolding which i got 12 years ago (the svq is the part that is your portfoilio , evidence of the modules that make up the part 1 and 2) I did the part 1 in november and asked the instructors , what do i do now , one thought that i would do the part 2 , then i could get my basic card , another thought that i would need to do the part 2 , then the portfolio and one day assessment.

over the past year i have been buying my way back into this game/industry , but its hard paying courses when u have no job , ive just had to cancel the part 2 as i dont have the cash at the minute

i do not know what i have to do , but this determines whether i stay in the game or not , if i need only the part 2, then i can continue , if i need part 2 ,portfoilio, one day ass , then this means my offshore certs will run out before i can be a part 2 and get back offshore , which means it was all for nothing.

ALL and ANY advice is welcome. thanks

thanks m8 , my problem is the 1 day ass , u go away after the part 2 to gain experience and collect the evidence of the different scaffolds that make p1 and p2 for the portfolio , then u go for the i day ass to prove you have gained experience and the portfolio evidence means u get the basic card.

now with me having the qualification that is the portfoilio(evidence of all modules in p1 and p2) why i would i need the portfolio , surely id just need the cisrs training courses to go with the SVQ , then get a basic card.

Don't go robbing just yet JB as I think you just need the training and away you go. Obviously I am no expert but we had a similar situation with one fella who had a score card. They could take the card off him but they can't remove your svq after it's awarded. I also can't remember when things changed exactly but it took me a long time to get from part 1 to advanced and by the time I did it had all changed and they were not sure how to deal with how I had the old part 2 without the assessment when on the advanced course, they eventually made me and another guy do the part 2 assessment halfway through our advanced course even although we already had the card but it brought us on to the new scheme. How did you manage to get an svq without the training?
