What You’ll Learn

This is the biggest package of Electrical training that we have available at Able Skills and provides all of the training and assessment that anyone looking to achieve JIB Gold Card status will require. From novice to fully qualified and ‘Approved Electrician’, this package of learning has everything that you need. You will start with learning the fundamental requirements for undertaking an electrical installation as well as information relating to the structure and organisation of the electrical industry. You will move on to more advanced information on the level 3 covering scientific principles, fault diagnosis and rectification as well as receive an abundance of knowledge on inspection and testing and installation design. You will also receive training to achieve the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations as well as PAT testing and the much desired C&G 2391-52 covering inspection & testing for Initial Verification and Periodic Inspections. Once working in the electrical industry, Able Skills will arrange site assessments in order for you to achieve C&G 2357 NVQ level 3 and finally, you will come back to Able Skills to undertake AM2 (Achievement Measurement 2).

As stated, this package also provides you with the following which are yours to keep:

  • Comprehensive CK Toolkit
  • City & Guilds level 2 text book
  • City & Guilds level 3 text book
  • Access to Smartscreen

How You’ll Learn

You will achieve all of the qualifications within this package by receiving both practical and theory training as well as work based assessments once you are employed within the industry. The required reading material for City & Guilds 2365 level 2 and 3 are included in the cost of this training package. We will also provide you with a quality tool-kit which is yours to keep when you have completed your training with us. Our facilities are second to none with good sized classrooms, lots of workshop areas for the practical aspects of the course and unlike many other training providers, we also have our own NET approved AM2 centre. You will have constant support from our fully qualified electrical assessors who give everything they have to ensure that you finish your training with Able Skills with a very high level of competency.

Courses Open To You After

This package of learning covers everything you will need to achieve Gold Card JIB status and any additional qualifications would be personal choice, you may wish to consider the Level 4 Award in the Design and Verification of Electrical Installations (C&G 2396)

Additional Info

This package of learning begins with quite a structured pattern of learning allocating 7 weeks for the C&G 2365 level 2, 1 week for the C&G 2382/2377 and then 7 weeks for the C&G 2365 level 3. Following this, you can move on to the Inspection & Testing qualifications and the date for this would be advised whilst you are here on the earlier courses. When you are working within the industry, the work based assessments can be arranged and at any time you feel ready, you can arrange to come in and sit for the AM2 assessment. This is an intensive package of learning and some home-study will be required so if you feel that it would be better to locate yourself close to the training centre, Able Skills has accommodation that is available on a room only basis at £20 per night.  We are open 7 days every week for visitors so if you would like to find out more about this Electrical package or about Able Skills, please feel free to pop in.
