NEW MINIMUM TECHNICAL COMPETENCIES HAVE ARRIVED (GQA)

GQA LOGOThe department for communities and local Government (DCLG) recently put their stamp of approval on the new set of MTCs for the fenestration industry. The new MTCs are now in line with the QCF qualifications developed by GQA Qualifications and Proskill’s National Occupational Standards.

The dedicated team at GQA have worked alongside CPS Operators within the Fenestration industry since late last year in order to develop and agree on the new set of minimum criteria. Chris Mayne, FENSA General Manager commented, “The long awaited MTCs are here! FENSA welcomes their introduction and believes they will further enhance the quality and expertise of window and door surveyors and installers.”

HOW THE NEW MTCs WILL AFFECT YOU

Glass installers and surveyors who are members of Competent Persons Schemes (CPS) must meet the new set of criteria. CPS Operators are now rolling out the new MTCs to their members , communicating how they will be affected and what they need to do in order to meet the new criteria. Network VEKA run their CPS ‘Network Assure’ and their technical and compliance Manager, Austin Greene, said,

Network Assure has always strived to ensure our installers are qualified to the highest standard. That is why we will be working alongside GQA to help our members achieve the prestigious GQA qualifications as part of the upcoming MTC.”

Mick Clayton, CEO of GQA said: “The achievement of a GQA qualification within an acceptable timescale will give installers and surveyors the evidence they need to meet the minimum requirements. GQA achievers will also have access to the valuable work related card schemes such as GQA’s Q-Card and CSCS.”

GQA’s Q card allows the holder to:

*Prove their identity and competence

*Display their achievements through the unique QR-code

*Grant them access to work sites

Mick goes on to say: “Once GQA qualified, you have the options of proving your continued competence by undergoing a short assessment programme designed around both the QCF NVQ and the MTC requirements. Successful assessment provides access to a GQA continued competence qualification and a renewed GQA Q-Card.”

For more information contact one of the CPS Operators or get in touch with GQA on 01142 720033 or email to info@gqaqualifications.com
