There are two routes for registration as a Network Construction Operations (Water) – NCO (Water) – Trainee depending on experience of the sector.
Both categories of Trainee must have EUSR registration for both National Water Hygiene and Safety, Health & Environmental Awareness (SHEA) Water as a pre-requisite.
Trainee (Probationary) registration is intended for individuals new to the water industry. It enables them to undergo training and work with experienced staff to build up the portfolio of evidence required for the Level 1 qualification.
A Trainee (Probationary) is expected to work towards the relevant NCO (Water) qualification at Level 1. In certain circumstances it may be appropriate for an individual to work directly towards the Level 2 qualification for Service Layer or Main Layer. They should be registered with an awarding body for Level 1 or 2 within 3 months of their registration on EUSR. If an individual is not registered within this time, EUSR may remove their registration at the request of Lloyds Register.
Trainee (Experienced Worker)
Trainee (Experienced Worker) registration is intended for individuals who are experienced in the installation of utility assets but have not yet achieved the relevant qualification. They are expected to achieve the relevant qualification before their registration as a Trainee (Experienced Worker) expires.
A Trainee (Experienced Worker) must be registered with an awarding body for Level 1 or 2 within 3 months of their registration on EUSR. If an individual is not registered within this time, EUSR may remove their registration at the request of Lloyds Register. Suitably experienced individuals may progress to the Level 2 without undertaking the Level 1 qualification.
