What You’ll Learn
The NVQ level 3 is not a training course; it is an assessment of your competence and is mandatory for those of you who require JIB Gold Card – ‘Approved Electrician’ status. The NVQ is relatively easy to achieve as long as you are working within the electrical industry and have access to the right kind of work. Achievement of the C&G NVQ Level 3 in full is based upon existing qualifications, site/work based assessments of competence and AM2.
How You’ll Learn
Holders of C&G 2330 and/or C&G 2365
The route for those holding C&G 2330 and/or C&G 2365 is the C&G 2357:
The first step is to undertake a profiling session with your Electrical NVQ Assessor where the processes for achieving an NVQ will be explained. You will then be assessed at your workplace where Able Skills Assessors will gather documentary evidence of your competence with regards to various different aspects of an Electrical installation.
To achieve the NVQ (C&G 2357) in full, you will also need to undertake AM2 and dependent upon the qualifications you already hold, completion of a Bridging Unit may also be necessary. Please ask for guidance on this when you call or visit us.
Holders of C&G 2360 or partial or non-UK qualifications and/or comprehensive work experience
The route for those who fall within this category is the JIB/C&G 2356-99:
The first step is to undertake a profiling session with your Electrical NVQ Assessor where the processes for achieving an NVQ will be explained. You will need to bring with you any existing electrical installation certificates you hold as well as any details you have available to you which can confirm your status as a time served Electrician. Following on from this (and with satisfactory evidence in place), the next step will be to be assessed at your workplace where Able Skills Assessors will gather documentary evidence of your competence with regards to various different aspects of an Electrical installation.
To achieve the NVQ (C&G 2356-99) in full, you will also need to undertake AM2

Duration & Cost
It is hard to allocate a time frame for the completion of Electrical NVQ level 3 as the assessments will only be undertaken when you are ready so it’s more about you than it is about us. The AM2 aspect can be completed in 3 days. The cost for the Electrical NVQ is £1000 including vat (based on 2 site visits) and this can be paid in instalments over the period of the assessments. The AM2 is 3 days and is £500 including vat. See above for payment structure.
