This qualification allows the learner to acquire knowledge and craft skills of electrical installation. It does not require occupational evidence from the workplace, so is suitable for learners who currently do not work within the electrical Industry (but may wish to do so).
A combination of externally assessed (exams) and externally set and internally marked practical assessments.
Although this qualification does not aim to make candidates fully qualified electricians it enables learners to develop and practice the skills required for a career in electrical installations or electrical engineering.
