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 don’t need to have a job in the industry before you start.
Once you’ve completed the course it will boost your chances of finding work in the sector and progressing towards becoming a fully qualified electrician. If that’s your aim, rather than remaining a domestic installer, then this is the route to take.
We find many students on The Diploma in Electric Installation (City & Guilds 2365) course are looking to change careers and find this option is the most suitable for them.
