NVQ Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Many Frequently Asked Questions arise when booking an NVQ.
Booking an NVQ isn’t always easy, the qualifications require a learner’s commitment and financial input to go ahead. Therefore, enrolling onto an NVQ isn’t a decision to be taken lightly if you don’t have all the information that you need.
Take a look below at some answers for frequently asked questions that will help make the process much clearer.
When can I apply for my CSCS card?
Upon enrolling onto an NVQ you will be able to apply for the Red Experienced Worker CSCS Card immediately. CSCS issue this temporary card whilst you are completing your qualification. Once you have finished your NVQ, you will then be able to apply for your intended card.
How long does it take to finish my NVQ?
The duration of the NVQ is entirely in your control. It goes down to how quickly you can gather all the relevant evidence for the qualification.
Realistically you can complete NVQ qualification in 1-3 months, but we will support you no matter how long it takes.
Can I complete my NVQ overseas?
Construction NVQ’s require onsite assessments, therefore, they would need to be completed within the UK. Our NVQs are also based on national occupational standards. However, Occupational Health & Safety NVQs use an online portfolio. Therefore, assessments can take place via skype calls and there are no requirements for site visits.
Does it matter where I live when applying for an NVQ?
Locations aren’t usually an issue regarding assessments. We have assessor coverage from the North East all the way down to the South West and everywhere in between.
How is my NVQ assessment carried out?
It’s a common misconception that you will need to visit a 3B’ training centre to complete your NVQ. Our NVQ Assessors actually come to your site to assess your qualification.
How much does my NVQ cost?
All NVQ costs are listed on each qualification’s page on the 3B Training website. You may notice that we have payment plan options for Level 6 / 7 NVQs.

– 50% payment upon registering and 50% payment upon completion

When can I start my NVQ?
