About this Qualification

The IQ Level 2 NVQ Certificate in Glazing (QCF) is a competence-based qualification for individuals working in glazing, such as installers and maintainers of glass in window and door installations. It provides learners with formal recognition of their competence. All learners will cover the essential areas of communication, working with others, health and safety, installations, confirming requirements, handling materials and equipment and preparatory tasks relating to glazing working environments. Through the optional units, learners will also cover the maintenance of glazing systems, cutting glass for glazing or making installations safe, depending upon the relevance of each of these areas. The objectives of the qualification include meeting relevant programmes of learning, supporting a role in the workplace and preparing learners to progress to a qualification in the same subject area but at a higher level or requiring more specific knowledge, skills and understanding.
