GQA Qualification recognition for CSCS Gold Card

GQA has been in discussions with CSCS with regards to expanding the range of cards available to achievers of GQA Qualifications. GQA qualification achievers and GQA Assessment Centres alike have brought up the lack of access to a supervisors CSCS card on a number of occasions and now recent discussions have seen both a Fenestration Supervisor Card and now a Glazing Supervisor Card being made available. The Fenestration Supervisor Card has been in existence for some time but the recognition of the specialist skills involved in the Glazing Industry is welcomed.  The addition of this occupationally specific Gold Card is another example of how GQA and it's suite of qualifications are recognised as a means of satisfying industry requirements as well as proof of competence.

Another benefit of GQA qualifications for Fenestration Installers, Surveyors, Glaziers, Curtain Wall Installers and Photovoltaic Panel Installers is that achievers are exempt from the CSCS Health and Safety test that forms part of the CSCS Card application criteria if the qualification was achieved less than 2 years prior to the CSCS Card application.
