About the course

This EMTA level 2 certificate in Performing Engineering Operations is ideally suited to both the experienced operator looking for a formal qualification to recognise their expertise, or someone new to the role who is following a training programme in engineering operations. This engineering training qualification at City College Plymouth can be easily matched to the company training programme, which means new staff could be following the qualification from day one!

Entry requirements

In our experience in order to be successful on this level of course you will need one of the following:

  • an NVQ level 1 / technical certificate in a related subject
  • successful completion of the Jumpstart programme

You will need to collect a variety of evidence such as statements, observations and testimonies to build a portfolio. All of this will be under the guidance of an assessor. Once the criteria for each unit have been met, the unit will be signed off as competent.
It is a requirement of enrolment that you submit work, contact or meet with your assessor at least once a month in order to avoid being withdrawn. Before enrolling you need to consider this point carefully in order to be sure that you are able to commit to participating on this basis.
