Hello all

just wondering if anyone has good training establishment in the midlands to take my NVQ to get my gold card at a reasonable price i have rang up one place and they want £248 a month for 10 months, seems a a bit steep but that includes the AM2.

cheers

Just re-joined !! Maybe wrong place ! My son is contemplating taking a course over 16 weeks full time that will class him as an Electrician, even gets a "Gold Card", now when he left uni he came and worked with me as an "Electrician" Not house bashing ! I used agencies and worked for many well known firms , he was even offered a job in an office of one outfit !!! Anyway he wanted to see the world and went off to the far east as an English language teacher, now considering this course at 44 yrs of age ! If he gets all the right ticks what is the chance of him finding a job as a qualified Spark in the UK ?

Hi - sorry to say, but I’m doubtful that a course will provide the NVQ3 for your son. Maybe check? Anyway, if he has experience there’s an experienced worker assessment route which might be more appropriate.

Do you think that's all it takes to become a qualified Electrician, a few ticks in the right spot? You must live in a different world than me, Then thinking about it maybe not.

Them Quals are same as mine except the pat testing, but there is no NVQ there. But I’m sure someone will take him on Regardless of his age
