VRQ Level 4 in Waste & Resource Management

The Level 4 Vocationally Related Qualification (VRQ) is an intensive classroom based course to achieve competence under the CIWM/WAMITAB scheme and an alternative route to the more common work based assessment route of a QCF (which SERAC also provides).

Following successful completion of the VRQ assessment, delegates will have proved the necessary competence under the CIWM/WAMITAB scheme to operate a low risk or medium risk waste or resource management facilities.

The course is run over 4 days (09.00 to 16.00). Learning materials are delivered via Power Point presentations, group sessions, case studies and exercises. Ideal for those who prefer an academic approach or who are new to the waste management/recycling industry.

For each unit learners will complete a written project. A proportion of the project will be based on an appropriate sustainable waste management facility (usually the learner’s site, existing or proposed).
