Zero qualification fees for Civil Trades RCC candidates
The brand new Civil Infrastructure qualifications are now available through the Recognition of Current Competence (RCC) pathway. And until the end of 2016, Connexis is waiving the normal $450 qualification fee and resource costs for Civil Trades RCC candidates. There has never been a better time to get qualified, so candidates are encouraged to enrol now and be first past the post!
The RCC pathway is ideal for operators with a minimum of 5 years of industry experience, who are currently employed and have been working at a high level for the last two years. RCC candidates gain a New Zealand qualification through recognition of the skills and knowledge they have already gained from previous work and/or study.
During the RCC process, candidates put together a portfolio of evidence from previous jobs and projects which they have worked on. Assessment is carried out during a professional conversation, where an assessor reviews the candidate’s portfolio and assesses their skills against the qualification requirements.
On successful completion of these qualifications candidates will be eligible to apply to the Civil Trades Board for recognition as a Certified Civil Tradesperson.
Five specialist (Level 4) qualifications are available:
Civil Works (with strands in Earthworks, Road Construction, Concrete (non-structural), and Road Maintenance).
Bituminous Product Manufacturing (with strands in Binder Manufacturing Operation, Bituminous Mixes Operation, and Bitumen Spraying Operation).
Bituminous Surfacing Construction (with strands in Bituminous Mixes, Chipseal, and Slurry).
Utilities Maintenance (with strands in Water, and Stormwater and Wastewater).
Pipe Installations (with strands in Trenched, and Trenchless).
