City and Guilds 6089 NVQ Basic Plumbing

NVQ's were introduced by the Government to assess occupational competence in the workplace. The NVQ, or National Vocational Qualification to give it its full title, is completed while you are at work, usually via a diary or log and supported by evidence. Evidence is often in the form of photos, risk assessments, job sheets, test result sheets and other relevant documents. The portfolio as it is normally known is then assessed by a qualified assessor from a college or training provider. Site visits will also take place during your training to cover the relevant units.

The current NVQ can currently be studied at Level 2 and at Level 3. It is offered by both the City and Guilds and EAL and can usually be sourced from a local college or training provider.

The current NVQ requires you to cover the following mandatory units:

  • Unit 21 Maintain the Safe Working Environment when Undertaking Plumbing Work Activities
  • Unit 3 Plan Complex Domestic Plumbing Work Activities
  • Unit 8 Install Complex Domestic Plumbing Systems and Components
  • Unit 13 Commission and Decommission Complex Domestic Plumbing Systems
  • Unit 17 Service and Maintain Complex Domestic Plumbing Systems and Components
  • Unit 24 Maintain Effective Plumbing Working Relationships
  • Unit 23 Contribute to the Improvement of Plumbing Business Products and Services

And the following optional units for oil installations:

  • Unit 6 Plan Domestic Plumbing Oil Heating Systems Work Activities
  • Unit 11 Install Domestic Plumbing Oil Heating Systems and Components
  • Unit 15 Commission and Decommission Domestic Plumbing Oil Heating Systems
  • Unit 20 Service and Maintain Domestic Plumbing Oil Heating Systems and Components

And the following optional units for gas:

  • Unit 25 Plan Domestic Plumbing Gas Systems Work Activities
  • Unit 26 Install Domestic Plumbing Gas Systems and Components
  • Unit 27 Commission and Decommission Domestic Plumbing Gas Systems
  • Unit 28 Service and Maintain Domestic Plumbing Gas Systems and Components

The NVQ can be completed in 2 stages, first completion of the NVQ Level 2 for Basic Plumbing and then the NVQ Level 3 Domestic Plumbing qualification.

The C&G 6089 closes to new registrations in December 2011.
