Choosing your qualification
The IRRV’s distance learning courses are for anyone wishing to study towards our professional qualifications. Whatever stage you have reached on your career path, there will be an IRRV qualification to meet your needs and to help you to progress your career.
As an alternative to studying for the Level 3 Certificate (Technician) or Diploma qualification, a member of the Institute is able to study individual subjects and then sit an examination. If successful, they will receive a ‘Letter of Credit’ from the Institute. This may appeal to those members who are not looking to take the full qualification as well as those who have achieved the professional qualification but would like to study additional subjects.

We provide the Distance Learning provision but we still recommend you speak to many Study
Centres to decide which approach is best for you. You may also need to discuss your decision
with your employer who might even agree to sponsor you.
For more information, please download the webinar opposite, which will point you in the right
direction when choosing the course.
'Before taking the qualification, I think
it would be fair to say, that I thought I
knew my job really well. Now having
studied, I actually do! There was
plenty of support available from the
tutors and from the website itself.
Whilst there was a lot of detail, this
was also a good thing. I feel I have
learnt a lot more via the distance
learning route, and remember a lot
more than others who have taken the
qualification through, for example,
the NVQ route.'

'Having undertaken the Level 3
Technical Certificate, I was keen
to progress and continue my
development with the Diploma. The
course is challenging but extremely
rewarding -– the ability to study in
your own time without restrictions is
helpful and there is plenty of support
from the tutors when you need it.
It has not only helped me develop
my career but mainly it has helped in
applying relevant practical and technical knowledge in my day to day
