Course Description

The Construction Technologies Theory - QLS Level 3 Course is ideal for students wanting to learn about the construction trade before pursuing further training or a job role. The course is suitable as a piece of initial training for a new starter, or as a refresher for anyone already working in this sector.

Course Overview:

The home study courses are split into the following 3 modules:

  • Health, Safety and Welfare in Construction and the Built Environment (60 hours)
  • Science and Materials in Construction and the Built Environment (60 hours)
  • Construction Technology and Design in Construction and Civil Engineering (60 hours)

On successful completion of this course students will receive a QLS Level 3 Certificate of Achievement from ABC Awards and Certa Awards.

The Construction Technologies Theory - QLS Level 3 Course Includes the Following Units:
Health, safety and welfare are of paramount importance to any organisation operating within the construction industry. The Health and Safety Executive’s annual league table of fatal injuries shows the construction sector consistently tops the table.The UK and European Union have created a legal framework for prosecuting employers and employees who disregard health, safety and welfare legislation.To reduce the significant accident record in construction, employers must formulate workplace safety policies. These must address the hazards, risks, policies, the organisational and control arrangements required to promote health, safety and welfare, and be communicated to all parties.The unit will provide learners with knowledge and understanding of the legal framework relating to employer and employee responsibilities.An understanding of the principal causes of typical accidents and the associated costs of these will be developed, and learners will explore the methods used to identify workplace hazards in construction, together with the strategies used to control them including the use of risk assessments and monitoring and review procedures. Learners will become familiar with the roles and responsibilities of personnel and with the procedures required following the occurrence of accidents.
Two important functions of a building are the provision of shelter and the creation of a comfortable space in which to live or work. To achieve this, it is necessary to know and understand the materials used to construct the building, the basic concepts that underpin the structural integrity of the building, and the design of the internal spaces that comprise the building.The occupants of a building require a comfortable internal environment, and there are several key factors that contribute to this. There are generally accepted ranges for these factors, and an understanding of what is acceptable to a variety of different end-users, undertaking a variety of tasks and activities is an essential requirement of good design.The forces that act on buildings, the stresses generated by these forces, and the effects of these stresses on the materials used to construct the building are also explored. Materials may be used for their structural properties, or for their insulating properties; others conduct heat and/or electricity.Learners will have the opportunity to investigate some of the typical materials used in their specific vocational pathway, including the identification of the most important materials, a basic understanding of how these are extracted, harvested or manufactured, their key properties and uses, the mechanisms that cause them to deteriorate and the techniques used to prevent such deterioration.
Modern developments in construction technology and materials have enabled us to create more efficient and complex structures. The ability to design, plan and communicate these ideas effectively is essential if a project is to be translated from an idea into reality.This unit will encourage learners to develop their understanding of the design process, and to recognise the contribution of other members of the design team. Planning and organisation of design activities is related to the decision making process and the likely outcomes of decisions taken by the team within a legal framework should be considered in the wider social context, rather than simple subjective preferences.This unit will enable learners to cope with the requirements of construction related projects as they pass through various stages from design to construction including the implications of changes and variations in the design. Learners will develop their ability to produce clear drawings of construction components, coupled with succinct and accurate explanations that specify to builders the exact characteristics of relevant construction details. Use of scale, proportion and appropriate description is expected of all successful learners. Learners will be able to use appropriate design and planning procedures to specify and communicate requirements for the technical components of buildings to other team members involved in a construction project.

Course Duration & Online Support

You can start this course at any time, and you would be registered for a one-year period. You also have access to a personal tutor who can be contacted by email. Your tutor is available to assist with any queries and to mark your assignments for the Awarding Body.

As the course is self-study, you can complete it as quickly as you like. Support extensions are available if students do not complete the course within the one-year period.

Assessment

You will be assessed on TMAs (Tutor Marked Assignments). Most TMAs consists of short paragraph answers, although some TMAs may have a specific word count. The main criteria to pass as assignment is to prove to the tutor that you have fully understood the question and have answered it sufficiently.

If the assignment is not of the required level or needs an amendment it will be detailed in your tutor feedback so you can make any required changes. The course tutor will be happy to give guidance as to how you might improve you answers. Your work can be sent back to your course tutor by email or by post.
