ECITB launches new engineering construction qualifications in Scotland

The Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) has launched eight new engineering construction qualifications in Scotland.

The new Scottish Competence Based Qualifications (CBQs), accredited by SQA Accreditation, are based on the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for the Engineering Construction industry.

The new qualifications, across levels five, six and seven, span a range of disciplines including supporting engineering construction activities in welding and installation, pipefitting, mechanical, electrical, instrument and controls, design and draughting, and moving engineering construction loads.

Andrew Hockey, CEO of the ECITB, said: “The ECITB Awarding Organisation works with our employers to develop the curriculum and content to ensure our qualifications deliver the skills and knowledge that industry needs and offer development opportunities across a wide range of engineering construction roles.

“With updated content and the latest methods of testing, the new qualifications ensure we are adapting and evolving with industry and harnessing advances in technology and processes. For this reason, ECITB engineering qualifications are valued by employers.”
