    2919 EV course advice

    I’ve heard the C&G 2919 EV installation course is being discontinued in favour of a new NVQ in Sept 2022. Has anyone else heard this? I’ve done my C&G 2365 level 2, do you think I’d be able to pass the 2919 now to get it done before it swaps to an NVQ? Or should I really complete level 3 first?
