Going to have disagree with when you say college lecturers wouldnt have a clue if they turned up on site. Yes I am sure there will be some where they wont have a clue but There are 4 college tutors in my college and all 4 are electrican gold card holders who are in their 40's and 50's who work on site during the day and teach the evening course 2365 during the week once a week.

Then I stand corrected  Mastbruch .  I was generalising of course   but that is slightly unusual.

  

Actually now you've raised that point I'm thinking of my mate's late brother ....off the tools and teaching at Birmingham's Mathew Boulton College ..but was really disillusioned with the changes .   Said only a small percent of the students had any interest in electrics  , the rest were political prisoners as he said .  Placed there to fill  quotas ,  bums on seats  and not yet on the unemployment register.

Just see that, I wonder why the C&G 2392 is recognised yet the equivalent EAL is not.

Dear All,

I'm the same situation, I  read all your replies searching for a help for my next steps to be a qualified  gold card electrician

 

 I am a foreign electrician who didn't work as an electrician in UK yet but I did 18th edition, C&G 2392, C&G 2391, passed them 

 

 - what is the right way to achieve NVQ 3 and AM?  i read 2365 level 1&2 after it 2357 which is costly. 

Other opinions say as an improver and search for apprentice.

 

what do you guys recommend? 

 

Thank you in advance

Hamadaaaaa

I’m sorry to say, you have also been duped by false advertising.  This is a serious breach of Law and needs to be addressed as such. 

 

All you have paid for is to be shown what to look at in an installation and does it comply with today’s/last years regs. 

That in my opinion makes you dangerous if you attempt anything other than this. 

 

It reminds me of the current tv advert with the plane of holidaymakers and the pilot comes over the tannoy announcing he’s kicked the tyres and thinks he has enough fuel to get them there. 

Odd that the government won’t accept people adopting this attitude to use of a vehicle but will quite happily adopt the same attitude towards electrics both having the potential to equally KILL? 

This needs addressing with the law makers.
