How will I be assessed?
You will complete assignments, produce a portfolio of evidence and take an end-point assessment. This is a robust, timed practical and theory assessment in sections. You will be required to perform a set of common tasks and procedures that a full scope electrical operative might face when working in commercial or industrial premises or dwellings.
What could I do after this course?
