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. Having been recently extended so the last registration date is now 31st December 2019 delegates can follow either the City and Guilds 6187-04 or 6187-06 routes.

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

Course Structure

Week 1 - Induction and Unit 303
Weeks 2 & 3 - Electrics and Units 302 and 602
Weeks 4 & 5 - Technical Training and Remaining Units
Week 6 (optional) - Additional Technical Training
2 Days for On Site Assessments

Route Options

6187-04 - Servicing & Maintaining Air Conditioning / Heat Pump Equipment

In brief ...

At the moment, the last registration date is 31st December 2019 but you will have until the end of 2021 to complete.

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 usually take between 27 and 32 days including on-site assessments but may be longer if additional training is required.

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

This course is particularly suitable for companies with groups of engineers requiring this qualification but we can also schedule courses for individuals.

Funding is not usually available (although we will check at the time) but payment can be made in installments if preferred.

For anyone eligible for funding, or who would prefer to take the full, 12 month course, we also have full level 3 NVQ courses running all the time.
