DMR Fast-track NVQs – Get Qualified in One DAY!

If you’re a skilled and experienced construction worker but you’re just missing the qualification that proves it, a Fast-track NVQ could be for you.

DMR Training now offers fast-track NVQ assessments in Roofing, Dry Lining and Groundwork – delivered in just ONE DAY!

As an intensive form of NVQ assessment that comes with its fair share of pressure, Fast-track in not for everyone.

However, if you’ve been practicing your trade for years and can complete tasks to a high standard in a short space of time, Fast-track is worth considering (especially if you need your NVQ as quickly as possible).

If you’d prefer to work towards your qualification at a more leisurely pace, you might want to consider OSAT assessment which takes two to four months.

What is involved in one-day NVQ assessment?

Fast-track is NOT a training session. The assessor will not be providing any guidance on how to do the job set out in the task, only giving instructions on the maximum hours allocated and the tools and equipment allowed. To gain your qualification you must be fully capable of completing the tasks asked of you.

Roofing

  • Practical assessment, working to a drawing provided on the day, involving laying interlocking, plain tiles and natural slates
  • Knowledge question and answer session
  • Professional discussion

Dry Lining

  • Practical assessment, working to a drawing provided on the day, related to Dry Lining Finishing – tape and joint system to wall area
  • Knowledge question and answer session
  • Professional discussion

Groundwork (Construction Operations)

  • Practical assessment, working to a drawing provided on the day, involving constructing a concrete slab on a compacted sub-base OR laying small pipework drainage

Tools and Materials

Candidates are required to provide their own tools; DMR will supply materials. Your assessor will explain in advance which tools to bring with you on the day.
