get your employer to give you a recommended grade

having completed your NVQ3 and your C&G parts 1 & 2 i would say you'd get an electricians grading.

give them a ring and enquire, they don't bite :)

nah mate, that's nonsense as far as i'm aware. JIB don't care, they just check your certs and issue a card with a grade

i didnt know you could pay to do NVQ3's in a year! i had always assumed it was a work based qualification certified over 3 years.

just goes to show we're always learning, i'm enjoying this forum

it is 3years for an apprentice but if your an older trainee you can pay 600 to do it you dont have to do it in one year but if you dont you have to pay 600 quid each year you go back but anyone can **** it in one year all you do is take pictures of you doing the work then do a write up with a few regs stated and methods of isolation and dont forget H&S you can get most of it from the college .
each unit you do is exactly the same 3 times oer domestic commercial industrial

you may need to sit an am2 practical test but the jib grading department will tell you everything you need
apparentley i dont have to take am2 because of my age what does that have to do with any thing its wierd

hi everyone also just remembered that if you take your nvq 3 you are exempt from the H&S test which you need for your JIB card allthough only for 3 years
