Im a trainee looking for work in Essex,
I have passed my City & Guilds level 2 Electrical Installations (2365). I Have my own car and all tools.
Have 6 months site experience. I don’t mind working odd days when ever I am needed just to gain more experiance.
You guys have been awesome with help before, so feel like the best place to ask.
It may sound like a stupid question, but how many certificates are you supposed to receive for passing the 2365 level 2 course? I passed in June with Salford City College, and have received 3.
