In the local paper there is a course being advertised as ' Electrotechnical technology - level 2 ' It's a two day a week course from 6-9 for 34 weeks. After googling it appears to be the C&G 2330. As not having previous electrical experience, only that i have learned whilst looking for diy projects i don't feel i'm ready for the level 3. My aim/goal would be to do this and then to find a job as a sparkies mate for a company and then for them to give me on hand experience and the extra training to become a fully qualified electrician.

What is your thoughts??

Regards jon

sounds a bit more than the college courses. but not extortionate. your best guide on thnis is either widdler or sirkitbreaker. they know all the ins and outs of courses.

I've been told circa £1800 for a similar course by my local college that I'm starting in september so seems reasonable enough. I say circa because fees are yet to be confirmed, but that was the ballpark figure they provided.

Hope it all goes well for you mate, is the course the same period of time or longer?

Cheers, good luck too if you decide to go for it!

I would assume its about the same duration, starts in September 3 nights a week for the full duration of the course which is the college year (students do have ridiculously long summer breaks after all!). Can't wait to get stuck in :)

This seems a good price as my college now charges 1095 per year over 2years for level 2. I take it this is a 1 year course being 6-9 per week?

I've been told it'll be 6-9pm 3 days a week over 1 year for level 2, then same again for level 3. Still waiting to hear what the actual qualification is though, as they said its a new one they've not ran before, but never stated what exactly it was!
