About CCDO Cards

Workforce Skills Support is an NVQ accredited centre with the Awarding Organisations Proqual and SQA.

​As an accredited centre, we deliver NVQ qualifications recognised by the Certificate of Competence of Demolition Operatives (CCDO) card scheme. This allows employers and candidates to apply for their CCDO cards in line with the additional requirements set out by the scheme administered by NDTG.

Individuals will be visited by their assessor at their place of work. The assessor will guide them through each part of the process, observe them working and provide the highest levels of support until they complete their qualifications. This is ideal for individuals and employers needing to avoid downtime and days away from the site.​
