You will be told by your tutor and will receive certification from the awarding body.

You will be given support and guidance by your assessor and offered the opportunity for a re assessment. If you fail an online exam youmay need to pay for a resit.

100% attendance, commitment and drive to do well. Our learners are generally self funded with a high motivation to be successful.

Attendance is vital to ensure your successful completion. However this cannot always be guaranteed by each candidate. Teaching staff will do all that they can to support candidates to catch up. In some cases candidates may need to re book onto another programme.

No they do not but the IET Wiring Regulations Qualification will need to be updated each time a new edition comes out. For example the 17th Edition came into place in 2008 and ended on 2018. Now general Electricians have to comply with the current 18th Edition Wiring regulations which came into full effect on January 2019, so electricians had to update their regulations qualification.

Eventually yes but not straight away. The first two steps of training which are done by completing the level 2 Diploma and level 3 Diploma, do not require the candidate to be working and these are studied at our training centre. The third & forth steps, which entails the Level 3 NVQ and AM2 do require candidates to be working in the Electrical Industry.

No, Engineering is classed as a different field to Electrical Installations. To become a qualified Electrician you need to hold a level 3 NVQ in Electrical Installations and AM2 assessment.

No, the 18th Edition course is open to Electricians and allied trades. The course is theory based and structured around the IET Wiring regulations.

Candidates are required to be a qualified Electrician or as a minimum hold a level 3 Diploma/Certificate in Electrical Installations.

First of all you should contact ECCTIS and have your non UK qualifications compared to the UK standard qualifications. Once you have done that, you can check the JIB/ECS website to see if you meet the requirements.
