We are aware of the weather conditions across Cornwall currently and are monitoring the situation closely. The college is open as usual but staff and students are asked to travel only if safe to do so. We are expecting delays due to travel disruption. Absence reporting can be found here. Thank you for your patience.
This qualification acts as an equivalent accreditation for motor vehicle technicians who wish to demonstrate Level 3 knowledge and practical competence but who do not hold a formal Level 3 qualification. It also allows successful candidates to meet the eligibility requirements for entry onto the Skills and Education Group Awards Level 2 Award in MOT Testing which will allow them to qualify as a DVSA MOT Tester. All of the content within the assessments has been mapped to the Level 3 Light Vehicle National Occupational Standards.
There are no formal requirements for entry to the VTAA however, as the VTAA is an assessment of a motor vehicle technician’s knowledge and skills it is expected that motor vehicle technicians will have worked in their roles for four or more years to demonstrate capabilities at Level 3. Evidence to demonstrate three years’ experience could be provided through items such as former wage slips, technician declaration or CV (this list is not exhaustive).
