Based on National Occupational Standards (NOS), this Diploma in Engineering Construction Design and Draughting at SCQF Level 6 includes units on contributing to effective working relationships, evaluating engineering construction design options, reading and extracting technical information from engineering construction drawings and more.

ECITB requires that evidence of competence must be drawn from and reflect activity undertaken by the learner in the workplace. The workplace is defined as the learner’s normal place of work for their occupation.

In the units of assessment some learning outcomes and associated assessment criteria relate to the knowledge that enables a learner to perform competently. Evidence must be collected that verifies this knowledge is present.
