Stephen asked:

Will this enough to get my gold or black cscs card?

Answer:

Dear Stephen, In the past, many of our students were granted CSCS cards based upon this qualification but quite recently CSCS refused some students for issuing these cards. You can contact CSCS directly to confirm whether they still accept ABC Awards' Level 4 course accredited under their Quality Licence scheme. On course completion students can claim endorsed certificate by paying £95 accreditation fee. There are £9 postal charges for the UK students and £15 for the non-UK students.

Iain Macdonald asked:

Is this course an NVQ / SVQ

Answer:

Dear Iain This is a knowledge-based course (as opposed to practical) so this is not an NVQ and therefore not a regulated course as well. However, the course is endorsed by ABC Awards- a leading national awarding organisation. Endorsed courses add value to the CV and therefore are valued highly by the employers.
