NVQ 2356-99 Level 3

Electrical Installation

City and Guilds NVQ 2356-99 Level 3 in Electrotechnical Services Experienced Worker – Electrical Installation (Building and Structures) (April 2014)

The Electrical Installation NVQ 2356 Level 3 consists of eight units, 301 to 308 and each unit needs to be complete over three separate occasions. This can be any number of jobs / tasks and does not necessarily mean three separate jobs or three separate locations.

For example, if you were first fixing steel conduit and pvc singles for lighting, this would cover four of these units (301, 304, 305 & 306) on one occasion. In this scenario you would not have carried connecting nor would you have carried out any testing and/or fault finding therefore would not complete the other units for this occasion as you would not have evidence of doing so. Basically, the evidence that you gather determines which units of the NVQ you complete and you complete the NVQ in any order you like.
