ELECTRICIAN COURSES WITH OPTIONS SKILLS
At Options Skills, our electrician courses have been designed for anyone wishing to become an electrician. Whether you're a complete beginner with no knowledge of the industry or someone who has worked on-site as an electrician's mate, we can help you complete your NVQ Level 3 in electrical training. Our course includes 18th Edition Wiring Regulations and DEI, combining theoretical knowledge with practical skills.
In stage one, you will be registered with the JIB/ECS (Electrotechnical Certification Scheme) as an Electrical Trainee. This card acts as your passport to employment, allowing you to seek paid employment as a trainee. Upon completion of the course, you have your NVQ, but the ECS/JIB Gold Card and status of ‘Installation Electrician’.
Step 1: Centre Led Training
Step 2: On-Site Work Experience
You will continue your personal development with real work experience. Alongside a qualified electrician, you will work as a paid trainee on-site. This work experience will be invaluable, helping to build your confidence and knowledge. This stage of training varies in duration, with it taking anything from 1- 3 years.
Step 3: AM2/Gold Card
Following completion of your NVQ, you will be referred to take your AM2 (Achievement Measurement Test). All trainees must complete this test before being able to gain Installation Electrician Status. Once all three steps of your training are complete, you can apply to JIB/ECS for your 'Gold Card'. With this card, you are awarded the status of Installation Electrician.
