For over 30 years, the Caravan Service Engineering Award has been seen as the minimum industry standard that a technician should hold to demonstrate their competence to carry out a caravan and motorhome service. The award is comprised of two assessments: a theory assessment that underpins the technician’s understanding of their everyday practical work which is then demonstrated in a practical assessment.
The theory assessment is a multiple choice exam which is taken using the Academy’s online assessment platform. Learners log into their own account to take the assessment from home or work using a computer or tablet. The practical assessment is a four hour observed caravan service which is completed at one of our approved assessment centres below.
Applications are made by booking a place on one of the practical assessment dates below. Applications must be paid in full before acceptance on to the programme. Learners will then be sent their self-study handbook with which both assessments are based upon. Learners can then access their online assessment any time.

The assessment provides evidence to both an employer and their customers that a service technician is competent and performs to a recognised standard of work. The syllabus follows the minimum service that should be carried out on a touring caravan or motorhome according to industry best practice. Achieving the award demonstrates commitment to ensuring that work carried out meets customers’ increasing expectations. The Award is a requirement of the Approved Workshop Scheme.
The qualification consists of a practical observation of a service being carried out at one of our approved assessment centres and a short multiple choice online exam to make sure that candidates understand some of the theory behind industry standards. This will include gas, electricity, health & safety and other topics. Both the practical and the written assessments examine the candidate on their knowledge, the competence of their everyday work and conformity to health & safety requirements. Candidates choose to take the assessment either as the combined Touring Caravan & Motorhome assessment or as the more limited scope of just Motorhome only.
Having achieved a successful pass in both parts of the assessment, the learner will receive the NCC Caravan Service Engineering Award. This is fully compliant with the AWS scheme requirements.
