About the course

What can I expect out of this qualification?

The National Certificate in Concrete Construction (Sawing and Drilling) (Level 3) is designed for people who want to work in the sawing and drilling sector of the concrete industry. It also provides a means of recognising current competence for those already working in the industry.

The qualification includes a Compulsory section which recognises the core skills and knowledge required by industry for sawing and drilling workers. These skills and knowledge relate to safe working practices; operating procedures; use and maintenance of plant and equipment; environmental management; slurry control; anchoring of equipment; and sawing and drilling concrete.

The Elective section includes standards which cover knowledge and skills related to first aid; confined space entry; specialist sawing and drilling tasks. These elective standards allow for flexibility within the qualification and can be used to recognise specific skills and knowledge gained within the candidate's own work environment.

The qualification builds on the underpinning skills and knowledge provided by the National Certificate in Concrete Core Skills (Level 2) [Ref: 1452], and shares standards in common with other qualifications in the Concrete subfield at Level 3 and above, allowing transferable skills to be recognised between the different sectors of the concrete industry.
