Getting your Electrical NVQ qualification online?


During these uncertain times, we are looking at ways that we can provide our services to people in need of our assistance. Providing training online would be impossible, you need practical, hands-on training to become successful, however, the idea of completing the NVQ Level 3 process online could be on the horizon. Doing away with the on-site visits and instead undertaking it via video calls with an electrical assessor seems reasonable. - We will keep you updated about this option for these electrician courses via social media and our website.

What is an NVQ?


An NVQ or National Vocational Qualification is usually a site-based assessment process to determine your competency on the job. We would usually complete this process by sending one of our electrical assessors to your place of work on two separate occasions to judge whether or not you are working efficiently, according to standard and of course in a safe manner...


In the world of electricians, an NVQ is a stepping stone towards their JIB Gold Card! If you are looking to work outside of a domestic setting, such as on a construction site, working within commercial buildings, industrial projects you will need some level of ECS card. The ESC Gold Card, in particular, is an ID that proves the holder is a qualified installation technician. Therefore, is evidence the holder has completed the necessary training and is a competent electrician.


Want to get started?


Usually, we would say that the best way to get started is to take on our Gold Card Approved Electrician Package as this package includes everything you would need in preparation for achieving a JIB Gold Card including an AM2 assessment in our dedicated AM2 centre. However, at this moment in time, we have had to suspend all our training. Included in this package would be your City & Guilds level 2 & 3 which you can get started with right now! We offer both of these qualifications on a 'Home-Study' basis!
