The Experienced Worker Qualification is for electricians who have been working in the industry for at least 5 years (not including time spent in full or part-time training) but have not formally completed an industry apprenticeship or equivalent Level 3 NVQ qualification.
The price starts at £1500pp, additional qualifications can be added on if required (thus increasing the cost). Course duration is dependent upon learner input, with the onus on the learner to complete the qualification at their own pace. It is expected to take anywhere from 6 months to a maximum of 24 months to complete.
What you will learn
There are seven Level 3 Performance Units to be assessed before you can gain the Experienced Worker qualification:
- Apply Practices and Procedures for Maintenance.
- Apply Health, Safety and Environmental Considerations.
- Organise and Oversee the Electrical Work Environment.
- Apply Design and Installation Practices and Procedures.
- Terminate and Connect Conductors.
- Inspect, Test and Commission Electrical Systems.
- Apply Fault Diagnosis and Rectification.
To pass these units, you must provide evidence from a site of your previous work to demonstrate you can fully meet the performance requirements of each unit.
You will be assessed via a range of methods and an assessor will need to observe you at work on at least one occasion during the evidence gathering process.
Please note the Wiring and initial verification units aren't examined within the 2346 – these are proxy units i.e. candidates need to take these separately and centres claim them as proxies to achieve the 2346.
Where cited legislation and regulations are not applicable (for example, where the qualification is being delivered outside of England) then substitutions applicable to the learner's jurisdiction can be made.
What qualifications will you achieve?
- Electrotechnical Experienced Worker Qualification Level 3 2346 - City & Guilds.
N.B. Once the learner has completed this qualification and successfully passed the AM2E practical assessment they are able to apply for a JIB Grading and ECS Installation Electrician Gold Card.
How is this training delivered?
- The skills needed for the Experienced Worker Qualification are gained on the job, with learners acquiring skills from their senior colleagues.
- Assessment is based on a portfolio of evidence, submitted by the learner. This should demonstrate whether, or not, they have met the performance requirements - something an assessor at your centre can decide.
