Who is this course for?

To be eligible for this NVQ you must
  • Be working full-time in the electrical installation industry
  • Have achieved, or be working towards Diploma Level 3 (C&G 2365, 8202, or other awarding organisation equivalent)
  • Hold, or be working towards an 18th Edition Wiring Regulations qualification.
Don't have the Level 3 Diploma?

If you have more than 5 years experience but have not completed your level 3 Diploma you may be eligible for our Experienced Worker Assessment. Please see our C&G 2346 Page

How long does it take?

Complete in 6-18 Months

The length of time that the NVQ takes will depend on how quickly you can cover the different types of work required to complete all the units. As a rough guide, we find most people will complete it in 6-18 Months.

If you have been working in industry for some time existing jobs can be used as evidence to speed the process up.

If you have a large variety of work you can complete it quicker, if you are doing the same thing day in and day out then you will find it harder to provide the full range of evidence required.

How is the NVQ structured?

Once you have completed our initial assessment to ensure you meet the criteria for this qualification you will be assigned an assessor who will support you through the NVQ process right up to your final assessments.

Component parts of the NVQ
  • Witness testimony
  • Reflective accounts
  • Photographic evidence
  • Direct observation

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is the AM2 not included?

The AM2 is assessed by the NET. This will require you to visit a dedicated AM2 assessment centre. When you have completed your portfolio and observations you will be advised to book your AM2 at a centre which is convenient for you.

Follow this link to find an AM2 centre near you:

If you have more than 5 years of experience you should consider the C&G 2346 Experienced Worker Assessment. Many learners complete this quickly as we can accept historical evidence.

We will only accept learners on the experienced worker assessment if they hold a Level 3 Initial Verification qualification, such as 2391-50 or 2391-52, or equivalent.

The speed of completion depends on how quickly you can cover and evidence the range of work required.
