The Level 2 Certificate in Network Construction Operations (Water) – Service Layer is a competence-based qualification that allows learners to demonstrate the skills and knowledge required by service layers working in the water industry, whose role is to install water services on the distribution network.
The qualification covers the technical network construction skills required for a service layer, including health, safety and hygiene, and also includes requirements relating to working effectively and maintaining effective working relationships. The majority of learners evidence for the qualification must be generated from real work activities.
2 days - training room/practical training.
1 day - work based assessment.
Portfolio of evidence to be carried out by the candidate with support from the trainer.
The qualification can be used to up-skill existing staff. It is also one of the Level 2 qualifications that may be taken by apprentices working on the SASE apprenticeship framework for The Water Industry.
All learners must complete the following 3 mandatory units:
Maintain a safe and secure working environment in water network construction.
Joint materials by mechanical means on water network construction.

Learners may take the following units, but they do not contribute to the achievement to the full certificate:
Reinstate excavation and pavement surfaces after utility network construction operations.
Joint materials by electrofusion processes on utilities network construction.
Restore water network components to operational condition by repair.
There are no entry requirements for this qualification. However, as there is a requirement for the learners to provide evidence from workplace activities, the learner must be working in the water industry and undertaking service laying activities on a regular basis.
Candidates must hold an NCO Level 2 Service Layer in Gas to be eligible to convert to a water qualification.
Teaching methods include:
Theoretical and practical training.
Assessment (conducted using a portfolio of evidence and on-site assessments).
Upon successful completion of this course, candidates will receive a CABWI certificate.
I would not hesitate to recommend Expedient to any of my colleagues. Thank you for a great service, keep it up!
Expedient staff always try to go the extra mile to assist with any late or urgent training requests that we might have. I have always received great feedback and assistance from staff at Expedient while trying to arrange any courses. Thank you!
Everything from my initial enquiry to the booking has been dealt with professionally and every member of the team I have spoken with has been very friendly and have gone over and above to meet my training needs.
Claire and all her team, in particular Maria, made our annual training event a success. Delivering 15 different courses , over 2 weeks for 21 staff is a huge task. No request was too difficult and all our training aims and objectives for this year were met. The feedback from our staff has been all positive. This has been the fourth successful year of training with Expedient and we intend to carry on using their services in the future. Many thanks for making the very complicated training programme a success.
