Full Course Title: Level 3 Diploma in Electrical Installations (Buildings and Structures) (2365-03)
Course snapshot: An advanced course for those who have already completed their Level 2. Ideal for those looking to work as a commercial electrician and progress to gold card status.
Who is the Level 3 2365 Course for?
This level 3 course is a natural progression for anyone who has completed the Level 2 Diploma 2365 course (or Equivalent). Please note that if you have not completed your Level 2 2365 course with ourselves we ask that you speak to one of our tutors for an assessment before booking onto this course. In most cases you will require extra weeks training (at an additional cost) before starting our Level 3 course.
In some circumstances we can accept learners who have previous experience but no Level 2 qualifications, however we must make it clear that you will not be able to claim a final certificate for this course without first gaining a Level 2 certificate. Again we would need to speak to any learners looking to book this course who do not hold a Level 2 qualification. Generally speaking for those who have no previous qualifications we recommend a Level 2 & 3 course package covering both qualifications.
Important note: Recent changes to the NVQ and C&G 2365 mean it is much harder to mix C&G 2330 L2 and C&G 2365 L3 qualification and then progress to the NVQ. As a general rule if you have more than 5 years experience you can use a mix of qualifications and progress to to the Mature Candidate NVQ. If you have less than 5 years experience then you will need both the Level 2 and Level 3 2365 course (or equivalent from another accrediting body) before you can start the new C&G 5357 NVQ.
Why take the Level 3 Course?
The City & Guilds 2365 course is the most comprehensive course for those training to be an electrician.

Most students will find employment either during or after the course at which point they can complete an NVQ portfolio enabling them to become fully qualified. This is the latest course from City & guilds and has replaced the previously well known City & Guilds 2330 (tech cert).
