The Wood Campus Award in Timber Merchanting is a complete, recognised OFQUAL qualification, accredited by OAL (Occupational Awards Limited) as a Level 3 Award. The work completed to achieve the Award can also be presented as Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) for other NVQs, such as apprenticeships. It provides an opportunity for businesses in the timber industry to ensure the level of competence of their staff and to provide them with recognition towards a successful career path. It is also a way for individuals to show commitment to their chosen field, to prove their competence and further their careers.
As the course is available online, students can complete it in their own time, at their own speed, and wherever they choose. Successful completion of course and assessment leads to a certificate by OAL. The cost of a one-off course, including certificate, is £150 plus VAT.
