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.
