EAL SVQ level 3 Fluid Power Engineering

These Level 3 SVQs are work based qualifications that are suitable for people working in an engineering environment.  These courses are suitable for ALL ages from young apprentices (16 – 19) to mature semi-skilled employees.  The learner meets with his assessor usually on a monthly basis and submits logs (personal statements) as well as answer unit knowledge questions to the assessor.  The work can also be submitted electronically, if this is more desirable.   The learner has to build a portfolio of evidence to obtain the qualification and assure his employer and future employers his/her competence in the industry.

The programme normally takes from about 12 months to 2 years to complete, depending on the experience and work ethics of the learner.  The assessor will also observe the learner in the workplace and .
