The Qualification - The Caribbean Vocational Qualification (CVQ)

A candidate must demonstrate proficiency in each area of competence as required by the relevant Occupational Standard. This demonstration may include training from approved post-secondary institutions. It may also include training from educational bodies or institutions that are recognized by the relevant regulatory bodies. Evidence of training courses may include certificates or must include successful completion of a graded exam or assignment. If you have not completed pre-approved training, but feel you have equivalent training and/or experience, you can choose to participate in the PLAR review process. The PLAR process considers hands on experience as well as training in other education settings to establish equivalent qualifications. It’s important to carefully consider your options when choosing whether to proceed with a PLAR review or take additional training to demonstrate proficiency. A PLAR review typically requires a significant investment of your time and commitment to complete. The CVQ is awarded by the Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Council Barbados
