    Is C&G 2396 Electrical Design qualification worth anything in the real world?

    Passed my C&G 2396: Electrical design and verification course recently and loved every minute of it, however I am wondering if it was actually worth doing. I haven’t seen any adverts with it listed as a requirement or even as preferred. It’s a level 4 course so a bit surprising. Has anyone done...
