Hi,

Any C&I technicians/ engineers out there who can offer some advice on their training path/ the required training path for this industry?

I currently hold a HNC in Instrumentation & Control Engineering and i've completed my Level 2 and 3 C&G 2365 qualifications. I initially wanted to go into the industrial electrician route alongside C&I but then found myself more interested in controls and put aside the desire to be a fully qualified electrician, so I haven't pursued any further electrical qualifications after the 2365.

Was just looking into CompEX training and found that in order for me to enrol myself on the course there's a requirement for electrical competency via the possession of a JIB gold card, so i've gone back into looking at electrical qualifications.

A question I have is, in my work I primarily work with 24VDC and nothing above 230VAC, I don't install power/ lighting circuits or other similar circuits and so wouldn't have this proof to build a portfolio. Is the Level 3 NVQ broader than this and are there any niche assessments based more on instrumentation and control?

I suppose I could ask my employer to allow me to take on these sorts of tasks to build up my portfolio?

Thanks,

Josh
