Welcome to Able Skills JIB Gold Card Training - Become a Fully Qualified Electrician with Able Skills
The current C&G Electrotechnical qualifications: 2330 levels 2 and 3 are to be replaced by C&G 2365 level 2 Diploma in Electrical Installations (Buildings and Structures)and C&G 2365 level 3 Diploma in Electrical Installations (Buildings and Structures) from September 2012.
This is excellent news for both colleges and private providers alike as the introduction of these new Electrical qualifications will mean that adult learners will still have a viable option for entry into the electrical industry without having the immediate pressure of achieving NVQ units which the current C&G 2357 places on them.
The courses are intended for those that want to gain practical skills and knowledge in order to gain entry into the electrical industry as an Electrician. They are also suitable for those wanting to update their knowledge and skills for progression within the industry.
Progression can be to the 2357-13 or 2357-23 Diplomas. These are the new sector diplomas that require the candidates to be working as electricians so that work based assessments can be undertaken (similar to the current C&G 2356 – NVQ)
JIB Gold Card Training - Next start date: 08th October 2012
If you are considering a career in the Electrical industry, there is a requirement for you to achieve certain qualifications in order to be able to call yourself a FULLY QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN and to achieve JIB gold card status http://www.jib.org.uk/gdappelec.htm
This package of courses is based around the completion of both level 2 and 3 C&G 2365 Diploma in Electrical Installations and the C&G 2357 NVQ Diploma in Electrotechnical Technology.
There are progressive qualifications which you will need to achieve to qualify for JIB Gold Card status:
- City & Guilds 2365-02: Level 2 Diploma in Electrical Installations (Buildings and Structures))
- City & Guilds 2365-03: Level 3 Diploma in Electrical Installations (Buildings and Structures))
- City & Guilds 2382-12: Level 3 Certificate in the Requirements for Electrical Installations
- City & Guilds 2394-01: Level 3 Initial Verification and Certification of Electrical Installations
- City & Guilds 2395-01: Level 3 Periodic Inspection, Testing and Certification of Electrical Installations
- AM 2 (Achievement Measurement 2)
- City & Guilds 2357-13: Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Electrotechnical Technology
And there are other qualifications included in this package which will benefit your progression within the Electrical industry:
To register for Part P and self-certificate installations undertaken in a domestic dwelling, a Building Regulations qualification is required so therefore we are providing within this package, the C&G 2393 and to undertake PAT Testing, City & Guilds 2377 is essential so that is also included for you:
- City & Guilds 2393: Certificate in the Building Regulations for Electrical Installations in Dwellings level 3 (For Part P)
- City & Guilds 2377: Code of Practice for In-service Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment level 3
Able Skills is all about progression and we continually encourage and support our students in their quest to be the best that they can be within their chosen trade.

These qualifications will not provide unit accreditation if you are successful in only one exam/assessment.
Electrical Course 7 - City & Guilds 2357 NVQ - Time will vary
To achieve JIB Gold Card status you will also need to have AM2 as well as NVQ. The route for this will now be via the new qualification: City & Guilds 2357-13 Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Installing Electrotechnical Systems and Equipment
If you have successfully completed C&G 2365 at levels 2 and 3, the only aspects of the C&G 2357 that you will need to complete are:
NVQ units: On-site assessment is a requirement for the work-based portfolio of evidence, so the NVQ aspect of this package cannot be achieved without having gained on-the-job experience, undertaking commercial or industrial work either in employment or work experience with a qualified electrical installer.
Able Skills will provide you with an Assessor who will fully explain the NVQ procedure, go through all documentation which can be used as Portfolio evidence, agree an assessment plan and arrange On Site Assessments.
Approximately 4 On Site visits will be required to complete this qualification but this is very much dependent upon the type of work you have available to you for the purpose of assessment and portfolio evidence.

Electrical Training courses at Able Skills Dartford Kent
by Able Skills
I took the 5 day introduction to electrics with Able Skills. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole week, it was very informative and taught in the simplest way possible to gain a good understanding very quickly. The course Tutor was quick to inform us “there’s no such thing as a stupid question” and was happy to answer anything and everything we threw at him! Great value for money and I would definitely recommend
I did not need to consider other training providers, Able Skills offered exactly what I needed. I had an excellent week training with the introduction to electrics with Bryan. I learnt a lot and I am really looking forward to the VRQ next week, I feel well prepared.
The web search helped me chose Able Skills to study with for my City & Guilds 2365 Level 3. It was a 7 week course and taught by Richard. I was impressed with the walk through their facility prior to booking with them.

Location and length of the course were the factors important to me when choosing where to train for my 2365 Level 3. The internet had great reviews and my friends had heard of them.
