Why take this course?
This course is ideal if you do not yet have an apprenticeship placement but want to learn the main principles of being an electrician. It can then enhance your chances of gaining employment as an electrician.
This course combines the theory elements and the assessment centre elements of the full City & Guilds 2357 course into one simple package. You are then free to arrange the on site assessments at a time that is suitable for you.
This City & Guilds 2357 with AM2 Assessments course is a suitable replacement for the City & Guilds electrotechnical courses but with slightly more up to date content and also an added environmental unit. This course is the equivalent of taking the:
2330-01 level 2 Technical Certificate
2330-07 level 3 Technical Certificate
1 New Environmental Theory unit
Not only will you get taught by the UK’s leading tutors at our dedicated electrical training facility but you will also receive hands on tuition in our state of the art electrical and renewable energy training centres.
By taking this course you will benefit from our expertise in assessing your suitability to pass the AM2 before going to the assessment centre. This will potentially save you time and money.
Entry Requirements / Who’s it for?
This course is open to all. Ideally candidates will have 4 strong GCSE’s including Maths and English. If you don’t have these don’t worry as there are no formal entry requirements, however it is important to note that some of the maths on the course can be quite in depth so it is important that you can show good ability in this area.
If you have been working on the job for many years and simply need the the qualification whilst arranging your work place assessments at a later date, this could be the ideal course.
