hi, i left college around 2005 but only ever completed parts 1 & 2. just before christmas i took my 17th edition and passed so all i need now to gain jib electrician grading is an nvq3. my local college are not enrolling for the nvq3 till september and to go down the college funded route means taking my am2 also. i have found training centre that allow you to complete the nvq3 on fast track but that means i will not have officially completed an apprenticeship, but can still achieve jib electrician grading. i really want to get a jib card as soon as possible as i want to go traveling and working around the world, oz in particular. i spoke to the jib in the week and they said having not completed an official apprenticeship it can be a problem when working abroad. can anyone shed some light on this please? oz is my main concern so would like to know if jib electrician grading is recognized?

cheers buddy
 
there are different local schemes that can get you through nvq 3 for free , i signed my apprentice up to our local one in the midlands last week,there sorting the paper side and just coming out to assess him on site a few times if he answers the right questions etc they recon he'll be passed in 6 months.
Personally dont rate nvq but its neccessary to get you cards so..
as for the jib they would love more apprentice ships through them,because its more money them and the unions there linked with. they dont have much time for people who fund themselves and put themselves through education no money in it.id just sort your nvq get your card and go enjoy.
good luck

JIB are boll#cking you!Nobody ever, ever heard about them abroad!
You better get 2391, because this is the real thing!
And some real experience also, if you go abroad, experience is most important!
I know by myself...

I am about to sign up for an NVQ - so I can get a JIB card but it's going to cost me £500 plus the AM2. Information about any funding for these would be appreciated. I passed all the exams between 1997 - 2000 but never did the NVQ portfolio.

The jib will give you a card now providing you have your ecs health and safety and the £25 enclosed cheque, What is says on the card is dependant on the qualifications you provide the jib to grade you. ie electrical labourer, tester etc
