I'm trying to apply for an Electrical Labourer's card using my Level 3 2365 Electrical Installations (Buildings & Structures) certificate from City and Gills. I have passed the ECS health safety and environment assessment, but MyECS is still saying I am under-qualified for this grade.

Seen a few people talking about cost of courses recently and have seen the JIB offer funding for HNCs, HNDs, PV, EV charging and few others. Up to 75% of course fee. Saw with the HNC can apply over a couple of years and draw down £2000

I completed an apprenticeship via the CITB way back in 1992 (C&G 236 part 1&2 + JIB AM1), I think it was the 16th writing regs at the time. My employer at the time apparently “liked” me a lot and decided to have me managing/supervise the contracts/jobs instead of being on the tools...
So I met a guy last night who has just recently completed his nvq3. Fast forward we started speaking about the type of work he likes, whether it be domestic, commercial etc and why?
We then moved onto the more interesting topic of wages !!!! To My surprise he revealed that he...
I need to help please, I studied in the UK approx 7 years ago. Right after writing my C&G 2391 Level 3 I moved back home to South Africa. A short while after I received the results and passed. I have been working in South Africa since. I have been doing domestic, industrial and mining...
A debate at work and im slightly confused and thought maybe someone here may shed some light.
What is the point in doing your 2391 Testing course? Apparently to be NIC Registered you do not need to have 2391 Inspection & Testing & You are able to sign work off.
However if you have...
the jib website isn' very conclusive about which card I qualify for. I've just finished my 4 year apprenticeship and i also hold my initial verification and peridic inspection and testing quals so can I apply for an approved gold card even thouh I haven't been on site for two years as a...
I'm looking at doing a course to become a DI but I don't want to just be doing residential maintenance forever, i'd like to work on site eventually but have been told I would not be able to unless I work as a mate or do the 2365 level 2 and 3 and the NVQ 3 after and I don't have the...
Hi - I'm new to the forum and in desperate need of advice.
I'm a fully qualified electrician qualified under C&G 236 in 2003 (parts 1&2), I updated to 17th from 16th edition in 2009 and hold an up to date safety passport through the ECS.
I've recently gone on my own after being employed for 14...
What do you all make of the new JIB grade that they are to introduce with the new 18th edition?
'ECS registered electrician' is what they are calling it apparently to replace gold card?
Have I heard this correctly?
What are your thoughts?
I'm a electrician currently living and working in the South East. Myself and the family are looking to relocate to Nottingham. I just wanted to put a post up to get a bit of feedback on rates of pay day/ hourly rate.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
hello all, new here!
Just after some help really!

I’ve been looking for a sample portfolio or even someone’s finished to get an idea of how...
What does every everyone think of the new Ecs gold card having a white back? Maybe im being picky but i think it somehow degrades the gold card. Is it just me or does anyone think it should have stayed all gold
I have been trying to contact the JIB for ages now and failing. I have now been on hold for over 6 hours (over 4 days). This morning I've been on hold for an hour an a half. Sometimes it does ring but then they cut me off straight away. Other times it says that they are not accepting calls. I've...
Due to my experience in construction and other Level 3 qualifications in Construction, i have been told that i can go straight onto a Level 3 C&G 2365 course.
However i was reading elsewhere that you NEED both Level 2 and Level 3 to apply for a JIB Gold Card etc.
Is this true? Or is Level...
Just wondering if anyone can help before I call the ECS help line. I'm trying to apply for an ECS card but at the H&S assessment section I read that I can be exempted (or so I believe). I've uploaded the 2357 C&G level 3 qualification which I thought makes me exempt since it was...

I was just wondering if the JIB are real or not? I have been trying for the last week to contact them but I just get put from recorded message, to ring tone, to "there is nobody here, please try again later".
Have they gone out of business or are they a wind up that I have fallen for? I have...
I have been trying for days to get though to find out where my card is. You get put in a clue 6/9 and sometimes it says we have a high level of callers at the minute.
After an half an hour it just cuts you off.
So send an email! A week ago. Still waiting, its just an renewal done the test logged...

Has anyone done the JIB MCAS (mature candidate assessment scheme) ?
I have been in the electrical trade a good few years and wanted to finish off my training so I can get JIB'd. Been sent the knowledge unit from my training provider and hardly any of it is actually electrical related more H&S...
To be fair (RE: value for money) it isn't actually dear at all. From memory it is roughly £35 for 3 years (if not employed by a JIB member company) for an ECS/JIB card. They obviously deal with a hell of a lot of enquiries and, as I understand it, have only a very small office staff.
I wanted to talk to someone about getting a ECS card

Hey all, i am going to apply for my ECS gold card but I'm a little unsure who exactly can sign section 9 as my sponsor. Does my sponsor have to be JIB registered? Also as they are not JIB registered can they sign section 5 JIB grading system.

Hi to all,
Looking to open some extra doors for myself in the near future. I have heard through various people a 'Gold JIB' card could be beneficial to hold.
I work as a commercial spark in a maintenance role. I have been time-served and working in this role for 3 years.
I have completed the basic courses that have allowed me to work self employed on domestic dwellings. City & Guilds 2392 Fundamental Inspection & Testing etc, Part P and the 17th Edition wiring regs.
I am told I need to complete the level 3 NVQ in Electrical Installation.
