NVQ – National Vacational Qualification

The NVQ certificate is an official certificate with which you can prove your competence to practise a particular profession. Procedures for acquiring NVQs are relatively quick, as the acquisition of NVQs can take into account different skills that an individual has already acquired through work performed for employers, student work, voluntary work, leisure activities, participation in non-formal education programmes or courses, independent learning, use of different media, etc.

At a time when education and a school certificate or a diploma no longer necessarily constitute proof of an individual’s professional competence, and when the market creates the need for new knowledge, new experience, and new professions on an almost daily basis, the National Vocational Qualification can be the answer for any company striving for collective satisfaction, more flexible employment, and competitiveness in domestic and international markets.

Lynx Pro is an official contractor NVQ Professional diver.
