What is the Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Diploma in Building Services Engineering for Technicians?
The Building Services Engineering qualification is a National Vocational Qualification. It will allow you to participate in the Construction Skills Certification Scheme – Skilled Worker.
It is a framework , to which you must prove your competence in each of the units/areas listed below. It is not a course, where you will be taught new knowledge or skills. For those see the related courses below.
You evidence work that you have done, through Work Products ( such as reports, check sheets, surveys), Witness Testimony (from someone qualified), Observation (by your assessor), Reflective Account (write up a job and reflect how it went, what went well etc) or Written Statement (where you detail in writing what happened, where, when, who with, what tools you used, what authority do you have etc). You can also have a Professional Guided Discussion with your assessor which will be recorded and used as evidence in your E-Portfolio. You can use video links through a web cam or smart phone to virtually bring your assessor onto the job and observe you.

We use OneFile e-portfolio to store your work, where you can access and upload evidence. It is secure, you can use an app on your phone and your employer can have oversight (if they are paying for the qualification)
The purpose of the qualification is to offer a programme of work-based study for building services engineering apprentices. Building services involve the implementation and maintenance of, for example, heating, plumbing, security, lighting, air conditioning etc. The qualification provides the competencies required for the design pathway within the Advanced Apprenticeship in Building Services Engineering Technology and Project Management Framework for Technicians.
