Important information
This qualification is designed solely for those have been working in the electrical industry as a practicing electrician for a minimum of three years and who can demonstrate their technical knowledge, performance and competence to the industry standard at Level 3.
It forms part of enabling the experienced worker to apply for an ECS Installation Electrical Gold Card. This qualification is not suitable for new entrants to the electrical industry, apprentices, or other operatives who require any training, or those who have completed an electrical technical certificate with less than three years’ relevant industry experience. Where the learner cannot provide documented evidence of previous technical qualifications, or they have qualified outside the UK, the Assessor must provide auditable evidence that the knowledge and understanding evidence of each unit has been satisfied.

Learners must work toward units in accordance with relevant health and safety legislation. This is particularly important when working at heights, inspecting and testing, and diagnosing faults. Where cited legislation and regulations are not applicable (for example, where the qualification is being delivered outside of England) then substitutions applicable to the learner’s jurisdiction can be made. Meeting the assessment requirements of performance outcomes will need initial discussions and assessment planning between the learner and assessor as an essential activity to identify opportunities to assess real working environment evidence, gaps that need to be filled, or opportunities to recognise the prior achievement of the learner.
