What to look for when renewing your MTC card

Many original MTC cards are expiring this autumn and through 2018, and need to be renewed. Installers and surveyors should be wary over which card they use as some have switched from being personal cards to company cards that need replacing each time you change job. Those working on a sub-contracting basis may need more than one company card.

The new Corgi Fenestration Skills Card recognises qualifications developed and certified by GQA Qualifications.

If your existing MTC Card was issued after you achieved a GQA accredited NVQ then you automatically meet Corgi Fenestration requirements and can get a card straight away. If your NVQ is about to expire, you can easily complete a competency upgrade and get your card that way.

“A Corgi Fenestration Skills Card means you hold the best qualifications in the business,” Mick Clayton, GQA CEO, said. “They are based on National Occupational Standards regulated by Ofqual and delivered by GQA licenced assessors – the most experienced assessors in the industry.”

The Corgi Fenestration Skills Card is also an identity card, it can be scanned to reveal your qualifications and any GQA accredited training held centrally on the Corgi Fenestration Skills Register, and it can also be a Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) card, where appropriate.
