On Site Assessment Training (OSAT’s)

You’ve done the training, you’ve got the experience… Now get qualified!

Who should undertake OSAT
The On Site Assessment and Training (OSAT) is designed for experienced workers without any formal qualifications who want to obtain recognition of their skills by obtaining an NVQ Level 2 or Level 3 qualification.

In order to determine your current level of experience and knowledge please complete the online Profiling Form. An assessor will review your completed form to determine whether you have the skills to go straight onto OSAT or if you will need a few days (usually between 5 and 13) formal tuition at the NCTS training centre based in Hoddesdon. 

The Assessor will contact you to confirm and discuss the process in more detail and if no formal tuition is required, we will contact you to make the necessary arrangements to carry out your induction and registration.
