Course Description:

Who is the City & Guilds 2356-31 Electrotechnical NVQ 3 – Including Knowledge Assessment Unit training course for?

The City & Guilds Electrotechnical NVQ Level 3 training courses are for anybody currently working within the electrical industry and do not currently hold the correct certification to be classed as fully qualified electrican.

Who qualifies for the City & Guilds 2356-31 Electrotechnical NVQ Level 3?

City and Guilds requires training course providers to give each course candidate a prior interview to ensure they qualify and understand the requirements to complete the NVQ Level 3 electrical course.

Candidates are required to have been working ‘as an electrician’ for a minimum of 2 years in order to enrol on the NVQ Level 3 Electrotechnical course.

You do not need to hold any underpinning knowledge qualifications as the NVQ contains a Knowledge Assessment Scheme, which is not a pre-entry requirement, but an extra element within the portfolio to ensure your technical knowledge is up todate.

If you already hold an underpinning knowledge qualification, for example the City & Guilds 2330, then you are able to attend a shorter version of the NVQ (as you are not required to complete the Knowledge assessment scheme). Other qualifications such as the 236, 2360 and 2351 (all 8 Units) are also acceptable, so please call us on 08443307382 to discuss in more depth.

How and what will be assessed?

Candidates are assigned an assessor on registration, and they work with him until completion. Full contact details are provided, so you can have access to the trainer at anytime if needed. Employers can also have access to the portfolio, so that they can monitor the progress of their employees.

You will need to gather evidence from the workplace which will be assessed and verified by our trainers. The evidence will indicate that you are working to the standards expected of an electrician and, have an understanding of the appropriate electrical theory.

We are able to provide this City & Guilds Electrotechnical NVQ Level 3 qualification at any location in the country and you can start at anytime. The assessments are completed on-line using our e-portfolio system.  The evidence which they will need to produce to support the narrative, is also uploaded onto the system.
