NVQ (QCF) Assessor Qualifications... since 2012

NVQ QCF Assessor qualifications – formerly known as the A1 Assessor Award or, before that, the D32/33 – comprise a choice of Awards or a Certificate, depending on how many of the available 3 Units you take. A key point to bear in mind is that if you get the QCF (NVQ) Assessor Certificate (as opposed to the Award), you will be qualified to assess people in both work, and non-work (ie training), environments.
