PAAVQ-SET Level 3 Diploma for a Bulk Storage Operator (Technician)

Reynolds Training Services has received Ofqual approval of its new qualification, the PAAVQ-SET Level 3 Diploma for a Bulk Storage Operator (Technician).

The vocational qualification was designed by Reynolds Training to underpin the new Apprenticeship for a Bulk Liquid Terminal Technician, but can also be undertaken as a standalone qualification by more experienced operational personnel.

“This is fantastic news for our clients, new entrants to the industry and those currently working within the sector,” said the company’s MD, John Reynolds. The qualification, he added, also underpinned the new Science and Manufacturing Technician Apprenticeship Specialism for Bulk Liquid Terminal Technicians.

Explaining how the Level 3 Diploma would help foster career progression, Mr Reynolds continued: “It gives a clearer progression route for operational personnel within the storage sector that could lead to higher levels in organisations such as supervisory and management roles.”

The qualification gives a wider and more in-depth focus on process and occupational safety, human factors, emergency response and technical operations – in short, addressing the criteria of more complex operations that can now face operational teams.

Mr Reynolds said the diploma took account of the “wider changes to the bulk liquid storage sector” which have taken place in the years following Buncefield.

TSA Conference and Exhibition 2018

Reynolds Training Services will be on hand at this years’ TSA Conference and Exhibition on the 27th September 2018, to give delegates a firsthand taste of its new course and apprenticeship.
