Our VRS training area is fully equipped with all of the Non Proprietory Safety Barrier Systems and is approved by Lantra Awards in accordance with Sector Scheme 2B.
All VRS installers are required to hold the 2 Day Core course plus accreditation for the systems that they are installing/maintaining. We offer the 3 Day NPSBS course covering TCB, OBB, DROBB, RHS and UCB. The combination of the Core and NPSBS courses is equivalent to the previous “Basic Course”.
Please note that in order for delegates to be elegible to receive a Lantra Sector Scheme 2B VRS Registration Card they must hold a current FISS/CSCS (Fencing Industry Skills Scheme) card at the time that the VRS Card is applied for. Candidates will be accepted on to our VRS courses without their FISS/CSCS on the understanding that our clients/delegates will ensure these are in place in a timely manner after the course is completed. Details of the FISS/CSCS scheme can be found on the Lantra Awards website at https://www.lantra.co.uk/nhss/fisscscs
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer any Proprietory System courses at this time.
We schedule 5 Day events comprising the Core and NPSBS Courses on a regular basis, please call to register you interest if there isn’t a course scheduled in our listings.
Qualifications – VRS Installers
The required nationally recognised qualification specified in Sector Scheme 2B for VRS Installers is the “Level 2 Diploma in Work Based Fencing – Vehicle Safety” (which must be supported by a VRS Registration Card acheived via training). It is worth noting that this qualification is for all installers and is not a “Lead Installer” qualification – “Lead Installer” is a designation conferred on an individual by their employer to act in that role. TQ Exel are approved to offer the Diploma which is acheived through assessment in the candidates own workplace. Please contact us for further details.
Qualifications – VRS Supervisors
The requried nationally recognised qualification specified in Sector Scheme 2B for VRS Supervisors is the “Level 3 Diploma in Work Based Fencing”. This Diploma is also acheived through assessment in the candidates workplace. Please contact us for further details.
TQ Exel have also developed various “In-House” training courses covering inspection and awareness of Vehicle Restraint Systems for those operations or requirements that are outside of the scope of the Sector Scheme.
