COURSE OVERVIEW

The City & Guilds 2365 Level 3 Diploma in electrical installations course is the 2nd step in your career to train as a fully qualified electrician. The course is a progression to the City & Guilds Level 2 Diploma in electrical installations. After completing the Level 3 Diploma you can progress to complete City & Guilds 2357 NVQ, which will qualify you to get a JIB Gold Card.

On this hybrid online e-learning course, the theory is completed remotely through our Learning management system where you can access the resources at any time and unlike live online learning, where you are restricted to live sessions, with passive learning provided by us, you are able to re-visit the content as many times as you like. 

We also offer 1 to 1 support sessions with a tutor, through Zoom or phone call, where our expert tutors would be available to answer your queries. 

The practical training for Testing and Fault-finding and the tutorial for the "Design unit" takes place at our centre in Nottingham. The experience is the same as you would receive in a classroom environment.

The multiple-choice online exams can be completed at our centre or at your home through City & Guilds remote invigilation. The written exams have to be completed at our centre in Nottingham.

After completing this course you can proceed to Step 3 in your career, City & Guilds 2357-44 Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Installing Electrotechnical systems and equipment.
