Electrical NVQ Level 3
*COMING SOON TO TECHNIQUE LEARNING SOLUTIONS*
Completing this Electrical NVQ Level 3 is the final step to becoming a fully qualified electrician and being able to gain a gold card and join a Part-P scheme. Technique Learning Solutions can take you on the full journey to completing your NVQ.
Who is this Level 3 NVQ aimed at?
The electrical NVQ is designed for those with five or fewer years of experience in the electrical industry, and who have completed their City & Guilds 2365 Level two and three diplomas.
Prior to joining, candidates will be assessed on their readiness for the Level 3 NVQ.
What does this Electrical NVQ cover?
This Level 3 Diploma covers Domestic, Commercial, and Industrial sectors – it will include a range of units of New Installations such as:
- Health and Safety
- Overseeing and organising work environment
- Applying environmental legislation
- Inspection and Testing
- Fault finding
- Professional discussions with assessors
- AM2 (this is a separate course and has an additional cost.)
This is not a training course; it is an assessment of competence. Unlike other courses, this will not be based in a classroom or workshop – instead, candidates will complete this qualification on work placement. Candidates will complete electrical installations on-site, and they will then be assessed by a qualified assessor, building their portfolio. Only a small amount of this will involve going to a training centre.
Before entering a workplace, your assessor will go over and help you understand:
- How to build a portfolio
- What range of evidence is required to meet the qualification criteria
- What assessors are looking for in order for candidates to demonstrate full professional competence
Assessors will use a range of methods to evaluate candidate’s electrical installations such as; witness testimony, photographic evidence, direct observation, and reflective accounts.
How long does the NVQ take to complete?
The length differs for each candidate as it depends on how quickly they take to cover the types of work required to complete all units. If you have been working in the industry, previous jobs can be used as evidence to hurry the process up.
What qualifications will I gain?
Once candidates have completed their portfolio and other assessments, they will gain a formal City & Guilds Level 3 NVQ certificate. When candidates have completed their NVQ, they must move on to the AM2 end point assessment, which must be completed at an AM2 approved centre, such as our Sheffield centre.
