This work based course develops the skills and knowledge needed to be effective within the electrotechnical services sector.
Course description: 

All training on this course is delivered either in the workplace or at college, on a day release basis.

This course develops the skills and knowledge needed to be an effective employee within the electrical industry. It is recommended for employees who work within a electrical role and who want to further their career and gain a qualification through a flexible combination of training and assessment in the workplace.

The course will give the opportunity to develop competencies that are needed to carry out job roles and responsibilities associated with the installation and/or maintenance of electrotechnical systems and equipment in buildings, structures and the environment, including relevant:

  • environmental technologies
  • technological requirements and changes
  • statutory and non-statutory regulations and requirements
  • working practices in accordance with health and safety requirements
  • inspection, testing and commissioning procedures

This Advanced Apprenticeship is ideal for developing skills and knowledge whilst working within the fast-paced world of construction.  This qualification offers the unique opportunity to earn and learn in this sector. Real work experience, which is personalised to each learner’s aspirations and interests, is integrated into the programme.

The Advanced Apprenticeship in Electrotechnical Services Level 3 is built up of a framework consisting of:

  • City & Guilds Level 2 Award in Functional Skills Mathematics
  • City & Guilds Level 2 Award in Functional Skills English

Additional measurable benefits include better team performance, productivity targets met or exceeded, quicker response time and reduced error rates.
