Is it not the case the Part 1 etc is the just training and you need the nvq to get the qualification. I think most clients now require the nvq. The exception is all those with the score card where the svq is fine but the training is crap, Christ I can't win for loosing.

My training started around 88-89 but it was spread out. I didn't get my advanced till mid 90's I think so maybe that is why I have the svq.
