TICA Competency Assessments
When applying for a TICA Skill Card one of the requirements is the provision of an S/NVQ Thermal Insulation qualification certificate. If these qualifications have NOT been awarded by TICA a further assessment is required to assure the competency of the applicant.

The 1 day Competency Assessments are held in Darlington at the National Training Centre and can be arranged by calling 03333 237751.

The cost of the test is £420 (inc VAT).

In the event of a failure a full training needs analysis is carried out and a bespoke upskilling programme developed. In the majority of cases, one day’s attendance at the National Training Centre will be necessary as upskilling can be provided on site.
