L3 Diploma in Civil Engineering
The Level 3 Diploma in Civil Engineering qualification has been developed for achievement in a training environment which means you do not need to be employed to undertake this qualification.
This qualification enables you, the learner, to demonstrate and recognise your skills, knowledge and understanding so you can progress onto further training at level 4 or progress into a job role in the workplace.
This qualification enables you, the learner, to demonstrate and recognise your skills, knowledge and understanding so you can work as a Civil Engineering Technician within the construction industry.
You will be assessed against a set of performance and knowledge statements which have been derived from National Occupational Standards for your occupational area.
You will be trained and assessed by an occupationally competent and qualified trainer whose job is to help you complete your qualification.
This qualification supports the learner to attain enabling, fundamental and transferable practical skills with associated underpinning knowledge.
The final examination consists of multiple choice questions where learners can choose one of four possible answers. The examination consists of 60 mcq and duration 90 mins.
