This course is ideal for:
- LEVEL 2 ELECTRICIANS LOOKING TO PROGRESS TO LEVEL 3 AND BECOME FULLY QUALIFIED
What do we offer?
The course is approximately 50% classroom-based and 50% practical, and also includes a certain amount of home study that takes approximately four hours per week.
The course has a maximum of 12 students at a time, so that each student gets enough guidance & tuition from our tutors and passes the course with all of the required knowledge and understanding. It also allows students to ask all of the questions they may have and to get plenty of one-to-one instruction.
This course is the final diploma to become a qualified electrician, more specifically a Gold card holder under the JIB scheme. After successful completion of this course, since students often need to gain employment experience or even start working in the industry for themselves (for which we recommend our full Gold Electrical Training Course package), and then complete the AM2 and NVQ level 3 before applying for their JIB Gold card.
If you are looking to work in the electrics industry as a Domestic Installer, it is still MANDATORY for you to complete 18th Edition (2382) and Periodic Inspection & Testing of Electrical Installations (2391 – 52), both of which are provided by us through City & Guilds, either separately or as part of our full Gold Electrical Training Course package.
Since we understand how daunting it can sometimes be for learners to start a career in an unknown field, here at CBWA we teach the concept of how to plan & start your career development in the world of electrics, through a dedicated unit (Unit 308) which aims to introduce you to the concept of how to set & achieve goals that further push you towards your aspirations and expectations, with firm feet on the ground.
