Rack Training

A truly trailblazing qualification. We have developed over a number of years a pathway for those people working in the pallet racking industry to develop and qualify them fit for the job at hand, giving you the peace of mind that your team are trained and competent at what they do whilst giving them a sense of achievement and confidence that cannot be matched.

The NVQ-RQF is a ‘competence based’ qualification: this means you are assessed on work related tasks, upon successful completion employees will be deemed competent and have the required skills and knowledge to carry out the job effectively.
The NVQ-RQF is based on national standards for specific occupations. The standards say what a competent person in the job could be expected to do. As you progress through the assessment process, your skills and knowledge will be assessed against the standards. The learning method is based around practical scenarios so the employee gains crucial experience whilst learning.

This qualification is 100% practical, all work is done on site whilst a portfolio of evidence is collected by a trained official. They will test their knowledge and understanding as well as their actual performance. NVQ’s have been shown to dramatically improves staff retention, motivation and productivity, and provide a convenient framework for assessing staff competency, so isn’t it time your team were trained to the highest standard.

These qualifications are ideal for individuals looking to gain the only Ofqual regulated accredited qualification available for the storage equipment industry. There are three NVQ options available all of which relate to the relative aspects of industrial storage systems, inspection, installation and maintenance and repair.

The NVQ is assessed against the industry’s national occupational standards. These standards state what a competent person in the job is expected to do and, as candidates progress through the assessment process, their skills and knowledge will be assessed against them.

The qualifications are competency-based giving the employee the opportunity to demonstrate their skills whilst gaining valuable guidance and feedback from their assessor.
