IRRV (Level 3) Certificate
A new syllabus for the IRRV L3 Certificate has been launched.
The changes to Level 3 Certificate and Diploma are designed to attract more students to study for the technician qualification, whilst a structure for ensuring a smooth transition to obtaining the diploma qualification has been created. All three streams are now catered for at both Level 3 Certificate and Diploma; something that does not exist at present. Furthermore, students will now be able to sit subjects that are far more relevant to their chosen career path.
All our current distance learning students will be advised as soon as possible (whether they be currently studying or waiting forresults) on how the changes will impact on their studies. Each student will be contacted individually in August to advise them on where they now fit into the current syllabus.
Candidates are required to study four subjects, usually over a one-year, part time course (day release, evening, block release or by distance learning). Success in this qualification means that the holder can apply for Technician membership ("Tech IRRV") of the Institute.
It is not necessary to study all three subjects and the Centrally Assignment simultaneously, however candidates are required to complete all four exams/assignment within a 3-year period. This 3 year exam period starts from the date candidates successfully complete their first exam.
To be eligible to study for the IRRV (Level 3) Certificate examinations, candidates must
i.) be over 18 years of age AND
ii.) ideally have gained some work experience
