BCIA helps to develop a specialist NVQ for the controls industry

The BCIA and its member companies would like to introduce their NVQ in Building Management Systems. This Level 3 qualification was specifically developed with the Building Controls Industry in mind. The framework includes 8 mandatory modules followed by a project and a final competence assessment.

The aim of the NVQ in Building Management Systems is to provide a firm grounding in the skills required for apprentices, installers and technicians. The NVQ format is nationally recognised and gives young people a clear educational path through the industry.

The Awarding Body, EAL, has approved the offices at FETA as the official BCIA Assessment Centre. If you would like more information about this qualification please contact us (details below) or download the application form.
