What does the

Firstly, you will have to do an online knowledge assessment, made up of 40 multiple choice questions. Once you pass, you will be able to download your Knowledge Certificate upon completion.

Then you will have an onsite observation of your work carried out by an assessor, including a discussion with them, followed by a final telephone discussion with the assessor.

If you pass the assessment, you will receive a knowledge assessment certificate and a skills card to prove to customers that you are meeting Building Regulations and industry best practice.

Certass Continuum Skills Card

The Certass Continuum Skills Card works like the MTC Card to prove competence of site operation in their work, but it is not linked to a specific individual. It is designed for companies who employ multiple site operatives as it can be transferred to new employees at no extra cost*, once they pass their skills assessment.

*Certass reserves the right to charge a new registration fee if more than 15% turnover of site operatives over a 5-year period.

Are there discounted rates available for multiple site operatives?

Yes, if you have more than 10 site operatives, we offer special rates that can save you up to 15% discount.

For organisations with more than 50 operatives, our in-house assessment package means Certass can teach your internal training team to assess your own operatives, proving a saving of up to 40%.

Site Operative Competence Assessment

At Certass, we have to make sure that all joining members are able to show that they have enough competent staff to operate its business, but how can this be proven?

  • Through recognised qualifications, backed up by the Certass Mandatory Technical Competence assessment.
  • Or by MTC assessment for experienced workers without formal qualifications

Certass will check the competency of operatives by checking their training records and/or making them undertake an MTC assessment.

  • All surveyors
  • At least one person from each fitting team
