The Electrotechnical Experienced Worker Qualification is for practicing electricians with more than 5 years on site experience as well as relevant technical knowledge to Level 3.
Before you get started, we will invite you to an Introduction session to explain everything involved with the qualification and to undertake a skills scan so that you can be certain this is the right next step for you before enrolling with us.
The assessments involve an assessor visiting you on-site on several occasions usually over a minimum period of six months (maximum of 24 months) to collect evidence in the form of photographs, video evidence, expert witness testimony and records of professional discussions.
You need to demonstrate a range of work on each occasion to cover all aspects of the Experienced Worker requirements.
Both you and the assessor will need to perform written records of your work and present this in a completed portfolio of evidence, demonstrating your competency in the workplace.
Once you have completed your portfolio, your final hurdle will be undertaking the AM2E at a Net centre, allowing JIB to recognise you as fully qualified and satisfying the requirements for a JIB gold card.
Is this the right next step for me?
If you have been working in the industry as a practicing electrician for more than 5 years and you possess a Level 2 Diploma qualification in Electrical Installations*, then the Electrotechnical Experienced Worker qualification, course code 603/5982/1, is likely to be the one for you. This route does require you to have your 18th Edition Wiring Regulations and Initial Verification in Inspection and Testing qualifications too. Our Experienced Worker assessor can discuss this with you before you enrol.
Important to note:
*This includes EAL Level 2 Diploma or City & Guilds Level 2 2365 Level 2 2330 and equivalents, but does not include short VRQ qualifications such as Level 2 DEI or standalone CPD qualification e.g., 18th Edition
Alternatively, if you have qualified with your Level 2 & Level 3 Diplomas within the last 5 years and are intending to complete the AM2 trade skills test then the Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Installing Electrotechnical Systems and Equipment, course code 501/1605/8, is the appropriate route to qualification. Please contact our office by phone or by email and one of our team will send you the appropriate information.
Experienced Worker Package
If you do not hold a Level 2 Diploma in Electrical Installations, we offer an Experienced Worker package that includes both our Level 2 course and the Experienced Worker assessments. The price for the combined courses will be £3,800 +VAT = £4,560.
The assessment process covers a flexible period between 6 months to 2 years (this is dependent on your ability to identify and work on those jobs which will support your evidence of competence across all areas of the NVQ) and costs £1380+VAT = £1656 (Costs may be higher if you have additional units or qualifications to complete – our NVQ assessor can discuss this with you at an Induction session)
We do not collect a deposit before an Introduction session with our NVQ assessor. After this a deposit of £400 secures your place and payment plans are available for the remaining cost.
You will have completed relevant electrotechnical theory training and obtained a Level 2 qualification in Electrical Installation and then worked within the industry for a minimum of 5 years as a practicing electrician, which must be auditable.
You must be able to provide sufficient evidence from site and by witness testimony of previous work to fully meet the qualification specification.
As part of the qualification you must also gain:
All of this information will be discussed with you at a no-obligation induction session.
