EAL Level 3 Electrotechnical Experienced Worker Qualification
The competencies involved with electrical installation and commissioning. The qualification is made up of performance units which in summary cover: the application of health, safety and environmental considerations, organising the work environment, application of design and installation practices, termination and connection of conductors, inspection and testing, fault diagnosis and rectification. It also has two units which between them cover BS 7671 wiring regulations, and initial verification (these are the same units that appear in the industry recognised CPD qualifications).
This qualification is recognised by the electrical industry and is supported by the ECA
The qualification is not suitable for new entrants to the electrotechnical industry, apprentices, or those who have completed an electrotechnical qualification with less than last five years relevant industry experience.
It is a requirement that prior to undertaking this qualification, learners must have their suitability assessed by the completion of the qualification’s pre-entry skills scan. Learners MUST possess the knowledge and understanding comparable to the Level 3 Electrotechnical apprenticeship qualification which can be evidenced by relevant electrotechnical qualifications. Where learners do not hold the relevant qualifications, their eligibility will be probed through the skills scan to verify if they have the equivalent knowledge and understanding. This MUST occur prior to registering the learner on this qualification.
The age range of this qualification is 19+, however it is expected due to the
five-year industry experience requirements learners will be significantly older.
