What is VCA?

VCA is short for ‘Checklist Environment, Health and Safety for Contractors’ and is a mandatory certification for anyone wishing to work in industrial and construction situations within the Benelux (Holland, Belgium & Luxemburg). It is a widely accepted and recognised qualification throughout mainland Europe, UK and further afield such as the middle-east.


Implemented in 2004, VCA was derived to bring a HSE standard into the job market for all employees and contractors working in possible hazardous situations. VCA VOL (VCA**) empowers the barer to hold in his possession a work permit and is a mandatory certification for any who is self-employed.


BASIC (VCA*) is the lower level of VCA and is intended for employees of a company who are in no position of leadership and or management. Anyone who only holds the VCA* certification is not permitted to hold a work permit in his/her name.


BE AWARE A VCA BASIC OR VCA* IS NOT SUFFICIENT FOR ANYONE SELF EMPLOYED, WORKING ALONE ON-SITE OR ACTING IN A SUPERVISOR, MANAGEMENT ROLE.


Why VCA?

With your VCA certificate , you can demonstrate to potential employers / Customers that you have a knowledge of EHS (Health, Safety & Environment) as required by local authorities and site owners. With this qualification, you also indicate that you observe safe working practices, the health and safety of yourself and of those in your working area whilst also bearing in mind the Environment.


With a VCA certificate from United Training Ltd, together with your valid form of required ID, you will be able to access hazardous working environments with ease and will make your application for your gatepass a much more relaxed and simple process.


VCA*(BASIC) or VCA**(FULL)

At United Training we offer training ( both classroom & e-learning ) and official VCA exams that take place at our location in Liverpool by our official Dutch VCA partner. It is possible to acquire the VCA* (Basic) certification at United Training , however we only offer VCA* BASIC as an e-learning option and exam. As we focus on the developments & future of the employment market, a noticeable factor is that more & more employees are on a freelance basis. The VCA** certification entitles the holder to possess a work permit and they may be responsible for others working under his/her supervision. As a freelancer often only works under his own supervision he/she is always required to be in possession of a minimum VCA**(VCA VOL) certificate.


For both VCA* & VCA** a training course ( online or classroom) is required followed by an exam that takes place at our training location in Liverpool. 

E-Learning

Offers you a more flexible, cost effective way of studying for your VCA exam, you choose where & when you study. For example if you have a busy, dynamic work schedule, or family life or maybe you wish to take advantage of spare time during traveling just open your online account and away you go.


The e-learning has test exams at the end of each section to give a good indication if you have a good enough understanding of that chapter of the VCA. This way you can be sure that you are at a level to pass the exam. Also if the test exam is failed, it lets you know where you need to focus more attention on.


When you have reached a point that you are confident to sit the exam you can book an exam with us at a time that suits you.


The e-Learning course includes:


  • 12 online modules
  • Reference material that can be printed before the exam is completed. (This is just a summary and does NOT describe all of the course material).
  • Practice questions in each section of every module. These can be practiced an unlimited amount of time.
  • Glossary
  • List of abbreviations
  • Mock exams

Classroom Learning

During this classical yet modern method of education, our experienced and trained Instructors guide you through the course material and will help you to acquire sufficient knowledge and confidence to successfully obtain your VCA** certification. United Training Ltd cannot guarantee results as these are dependent on personal performance and previous EHS experience and knowledge of industrial situations. United Training Ltd can however, guarantee to give you all the support you need to achieve your desired result. We have a maximum capacity per day of just 20 students and therefore you will be offered personal attention where necessary.


All classroom tuition and exams will be conducted at the training venue for your convenience.
