Among the range of construction qualifications that we offer at DMR Training is onsite NVQ assessment in Insulation and Building Treatments. This NVQ is suitable for experienced construction and building maintenance workers who specialise in internal/external insulation and energy efficiency building treatments such as external wall or roof insulation.

The drive to decarbonise energy consumption is gathering pace across the UK, and now is an ideal time for sector workers to consider the qualifications they’ll need.

We assess both the NVQ certificate and NVQ diploma for this qualification, and cover eleven optional pathways:

Level 2 NVQ Certificate in Insulation and Building Treatments (Construction)

  • External Wall Insulation – Boarder
  • External Wall Insulation – Finisher
  • Cavity Wall Insulation
  • Cold Roof Insulation (Loft)
  • Warm Roof Insulation (Loft)
  • Internal Insulation
  • Floor Insulation
  • Insulate Framed Sections of Buildings

Level 2 NVQ Diploma in Insulation and Building Treatments (Construction)

  • Wood Preserving and Damp-proofing
  • External Wall Insulation – Boarder/Finisher
  • Cold/Warm Roof Insulation (Loft)

All pathways include the mandatory three construction NVQ units:

  • Conforming to General Health, Safety and Welfare in the Workplace
  • Conforming to Productive Working Practices in the Workplace
  • Moving, Handling and Storing Resources in the Workplace.

An additional two mandatory units are included within the diploma:

  • Preparing Structures for Treatment in the Workplace
  • Reinstating the Structure after Treatment in the Workplace.

Along with the generic mandatory units, you will also be expected to complete at least one additional unit (which is defined by your chosen pathway).
