You must be working in the electrical installation or maintenance industry if you wish to apply for this course and you must be a practicing operative, meaning you are already working as an electrician and/or maintenance electrician.
This assessment route is designed solely for those experienced persons who are/have been working in the electrotechnical industry as practicing electricians for a minimum of 5 years and who can demonstrate their technical knowledge, performance and competence to the industry standards at Level 3 and in line with the current edition of the IET wiring regulations (BS7671).

• Other UK based qualifications (such as BTEC, NC/HNC etc.) may also be taken into consideration against the underpinning knowledge requirements of the award.
Learners with qualifications gained outside the UK
Candidates with qualifications gained outside the UK will need to meet the same requirements as any candidate following this assessment route.
This assessment route has been designed to take in to account the existing qualifications and experience of the candidate and therefore they must be able to demonstrate to an assessor their understanding of the industry theory and UK wiring regulations as set out in the performance and knowledge requirements of the units of this qualification.
All non UK qualifications must have been fully evaluated by UK Naric. However, under no circumstances can any UK Naric evaluation be used against the practical performance requirements of any unit.
