To get a JIB Card you ned to get an Electrotechnical NVQ 3 which is a site based assessment process plus the other quals you already hold.
Depending on which area of work their are various awarding bodies with whom you can get this & having delivered some 600 plus level 2 & 3 NVQs on site from Glasgow to Pembroke I may be able to get this for free through government funding for you. Its what I do for a living now, you my want to talk some more & that goes for anyone elese out there.
Ive just found this site & think I can help many people get where they need to go.

Basically its funded through Train to Gain & I & a team iof assessors deliver this through on site assessment, because of the funding it is quite often free at the point of delivery. Without an NVQ 3 you will not get a JIB Card, if you want to call me do so on 07870738467

Hi luton sparky,

From a JIB point of view you would be a trainee electrician stage 2

on proof of studying nvq 3 and working towards AM2 you become stage 3 trainee electrician.

To be Aproved Electrician (Gold card) you need NVQ 3 and 17th update on top of your existing quals (17th if your quals are more than 3 years old).

See the ECS card website for more details its not very clear cut but basically your tech' certs are only enough to make you apprentice / trainee level. Real world practical experience and proof of that is what you need now. I suggest you document and photograph every thing you do as a sparks to help you complete NVQ3.
 
Nice of you to take the time to post pyrosym but to be fair the thread is 4 years old and he maybe an electrical engineer by now
