    Hi all.

    I'm currently thinking of a career change and would like to become an electrician.

    There is a course local to me offering a level 2&3 diploma (2365) on a 16 week intensive course.

    Working out the amount of days put in, this does roughly work out to the same amount of time as 2 years at college.

    I know that this will not make me a qualified electrician and that I will have to complete an NVQ among other things.

    My questions are,

    1, are courses like this any good?

    2, where can I go once I complete the course?

    I'm not in a position to start an apprenticeship from scratch and know I will need site experience before I can start the NVQ.

    Just wondering what position the diplomas put me in and what level of work to apply for?

    Thanks.

    The 2365 will give you a basic understanding, enough to get you started as an electricians mate. It also depends on where you do your training and your instructor. I've met a lot of people who have done this intensive course and they all come out of it with different levels of ability. You need it now, I think, in order to move onto the NVQ if you're not doing an apprenticeship. You'll still need work with an electrician or in site to build up experience and ability. Good luck
