6187 Level 3 for Adults (Non-Funded)


Designed for experienced RAC engineers who need a level 3 NVQ qualification this is a short, intense course leading to the City and Guilds 6187 level 3 qualification following one of the four routes available. This qualification is only available from City and Guilds until April 2018 so please Act Now!

Recognizing there will be a number of engineers who don't already hold an NVQ qualification or equivalent but may need one (for CSCS cards etc) we are offering a different way of achieving this providing you are already extremely experienced and working for an RAC company.

In brief ...

The last registration date for most of the routes is 30 June 2017 so even if the actual course is run later in the year you must be registered before the end of June. You will have until 2020 to complete the qualification.

All candidates must choose one route to follow but these will be run concurrently. A training calendar will be provided.

Candidates must be employed by an RAC company to complete the course because of the site based evidence required and the on-site assessments.

All candidates will need to complete:

A skill scan, the 4 mandatory units for their chosen route, 2 on-site assessments, a portfolio

The course will take between 27 and 32 days including on-site assessments.

Training is in one week blocks (apart from the on-site assessments) and maximum attendance is essential to ensure successful completion.
