If you want to train to become an electrician, you will need to complete a sequence of City & Guilds qualifications but with so many available it can be difficult to know where to start.

The article shows a list of City & Guilds electrical qualifications that are currently available to trainees with each qualification having a brief description about what that specific course will involve.

Anyone looking to start their electrical training from the beginning in order to qualify to undertake tasks within domestic, industrial and commercial premises should recognise that this qualification is the entry requirement to the industry.

City & Guilds 2330 level 3

Once you have completed and passed the level 2 course, the natural sequence of progression, if you looking to move forward to achieve an NVQ, is to take this level 3 qualification.

This qualification is more advanced than the previous two and has been introduced to eventually replace both of them but is currently available as an alternative as the industry gradually phases out the 2330 courses.
