GQA Qualifications has strengthened its position as the glass and fenestration industries’ leading awarding body with the acquisition of PAA/VQ-Set. The move means that GQA now not only offers qualifications in the practical disciplines of surveying, fabrication, installation, sales, management and curtain walling and façade technology, but becomes the awarding body for those working with polymers.
PAA/VQ-Set is the awarding body for the polymer, engineering, chemical, pharmaceutical and nuclear industries. As such it complements GQA’s other areas of specialist expertise, which includes glass, fenestration, construction, coating and print. Its qualifications will now be managed by GQA using its current ‘Approved Centre Network’.
Mick Clayton, Chief Executive Officer of GQA says:
“With its qualifications in polymer manufacturing technologies and polymer operations, PAA/VQ-Set is a perfect fit with GQA. The acquisition is part of our goal to widen our portfolio of vocational qualifications, and underpins our ongoing strategy of growth to be known for providing industry relevant learning”.
In the glass and fenestration industries, GQA has over twenty five years’ experience and is the only awarding body licensed to offer CSCS cards in those sectors.
