Hey Piglet.

For technician status you need 2360 1+2/2351/2330 2+3, and either course C as you said, or the City and Guilds 2391-20 (formerly 2400)

In addition to 17th, 2391 and NVQ 3.

There are two different grades of technician - Site technician and Installation Technician.

Have a look here.

JIB Grading Definitions - Technician Grade

Hope this helps.

hi there

i got the c course and recently was told that the course is no longer considered relevant now as it is no longer run by the city and guilds just passed and i mean just the 2391-20 (2400)

Anyone else heard this any where ??

cheers

Hey matey,

Where did you here that then?? It's a bloody cheek if you ask me We've all worked hard to gain our qualies I'm sure, and to be told that they don't mean **** anymore is outrageous.

I believe if you applied for a JIB technician card they would still accept it though.

Cheers:D

it was on a recent 17th edition regs course one of the guys on there was tiyng to get on it at swindon colege but they did not have enough interest to run it :mad:

i thought bl**dy cheek spent a good while getting that in 1993 !! 2400 is nothing like the c course but a lot of it seems to have drifted into the 2330 sylabus by which i can tell from whats on here !:p

just for the hell of it when i get 2391-20 certificate
i will apply for technician status and see what happens lolololol Also got a mechanical engieering full tech as well just as am added bit of fun


cheers
