What Is Involved In Studying This Course?
There are seven Level 3 Performance Units to be assessed before you can gain the Experienced Worker qualification:
- Apply Practices and Procedures for Maintenance
- Apply Health, Safety and Environmental Considerations
- Organise and Oversee the Electrical Work Environment
- Apply Design and Installation Practices and Procedures
- Terminate and Connect Conductors
- Inspect, Test and Commission Electrical Systems
- Apply Fault Diagnosis and Rectification
To pass these units, you must provide evidence from a site of your previous work to demonstrate you can fully meet the performance requirements of each unit.
You will be assessed via a range of methods and an assessor will need to observe you at work on at least one occasion during the evidence gathering process.
Please note the Wiring and initial verification units aren’t examined within the 2346 – these are proxy units i.e. candidates need to take these separately and centres claim them as proxies to achieve the 2346.
This course is aimed at people who have worked in electrical industries with a minimum of five years’ experience. You will be carrying out a range of electrical work which you will photograph and log to show competence.
Holding this qualification will enable you to apply for a JIB Gold Card. This card will provide evidence to potential employers that you are qualified to undertake the work required.
