The Diploma in Electrical Installations (Level 2)  is ideal for those looking to take their first steps into the electrical industry and become a fully qualified electrician.  This qualification is particularly suited for those not wishing to go the apprenticeship route or who may be looking for a career change and already have some relevant experience.

On completion of this course, you will be eligible to work within the industry under the supervision of a qualified electrician and have the relevant knowledge and practical skills to progress on to the level 3 qualification.

We also offer a City & Guilds 2365 combined Level 2 & 3 course package. To find out more please call 01562 913639

Course Entry Requirements:

The Diploma in Electric Installation (City & Guilds 2365) qualification is for anyone who is aiming to become an electrician working on domestic, industrial, or commercial installations, regardless of previous experience and knowledge.

The course offers an alternative route to becoming a qualified electrician without the need to be an apprentice.  With the apprentice route you would need to find relevant employment first, attending college on a day release basis whilst acquiring on-the-job training from your employer.

The apprentice route takes at least a couple of years to complete and typically the low rate of starting pay can sometimes be an obstacle for mature candidates.

The Diploma in Electrical Installation (City & Guilds 2365) gives you the same underpinning knowledge as the apprenticeship route except you do not need to have a job in the industry before you start.

Although no previous electrical experience is required an understanding of GCSE level mathematics is advantageous for the successful completion of the course.

Term Dates:

We deliver this course at our Bromsgrove training centre one day per week either during the week or at weekends.

From time-to-time attendance may be required on different days of the week, where this is the case delegates will be notified in advance unless due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control.


You will be assessed throughout the course by on-line exam, written assignments and practical assessments.

What Can I Do On Completing The Course? 

After completing the level 2 course you can enrol on to the level 3 and progress toward becoming a fully qualified electrician.

Progress Towards Becoming A Fully Qualified Electrician

After completing the City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma you will need to complete the Performance Units (sometimes referred to as the NVQ).  You will need to secure relevant work experience to build up your practical skills and be assessed in the workplace.  On completion of the Performance units you would then undertake the AM2 trade test and would then be a fully qualified electrician.

There would be an additional charge for undertaking the performance units.  The Level 3 NVQ assessment costs £1100 +VAT, with an additional £755 +VAT required to undertake the AM2 trade test.

 Course Content:

There are units on health & safety, electrical installation design, electrical installation craft, diagnosing and correcting electrical faults, inspection, testing and commissioning, environmental technology systems and electrical science and principles.
