What does this qualification cover?

To achieve this qualification, learners must complete 10 units in total to achieve a minimum of 33 credits. Learners must complete all mandatory units designed to improve team working skills, develop knowledge of health, safety and emergency procedures, and develop the skills to work productively. Learners must also choose one unit from Group B to tailor the qualification to activities they undertake within their current or prospective job role, such as: team leadership, weighbridge operation, processing waste, collecting waste or transporting waste. Learners can then choose any three units from the remaining Groups ensuring that at least one of the Units is at Level 2. These optional units ensure that learners have the knowledge and skills to accept, validate, handle and load different types of waste, while maintaining equipment and delivering services to a high standard. Learners who choose to take units from groups C, D and/or E must ensure that they choose a maximum of one unit from each of these groups.
