13/09/2012 - 13/09/2012
An amazing 31 apprentices, 22 with distinctions and seven with merits passed a new Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) qualification in July. The ECITB in partnership with City & Guilds put together the Level 3 Diploma in response from the engineering construction industry for more qualified personnel.
The City & Guilds, Level 3 Diploma in Engineering Construction has proved a huge success for apprentices studying with NETA Training in Stockton with a 100 per cent pass rate. The new qualification offers learners an understanding and practical experience of specialist engineering construction technologies and principles and can also be used as part of an Advanced Engineering Construction Apprenticeship. The diploma covers: Steel Erecting; Fabrication; Platework; Moving Loads; Pipework; Mechanical Fitting and Welding.
Don Atkinson, ECITB Regional Account Manager for the North East said: "All ECITB courses are tailored to the needs of the engineering construction industry. We work together with the industry and training providers, to ensure that all ECITB qualifications are of the highest quality and are a true reflection of developments and the diversity of the engineering construction industry. We are thrilled that this course has proved to be so successful and would like to say congratulations to all the apprentices and NETA Training."
Frank Ramsay, NETA Chief Executive said: "Introducing a new qualification to a programme is always a tremendous challenge, particularly one as in-depth as this diploma. The superb results for the qualification are a testament to the hard work and commitment of both the apprentices and the NETA staff."
