2357 NVQ Diploma in Electrotechnical Technology
This exciting new qualification is a complete electrical qualification for apprentice's wanting to become qualified electrican's.
The way the course will work is part distance learning and part class taught with tutor support throughout. This course can be started at any time and completed at the individuals pace. We send out modules to be worked through and completed at home and return. You will be able to meet up with your assessor to discuss progress and experience one-one and small group tuition.
We run an intense week through the summer for lectures and practical assessments and practice (Usually in August). We have found this week very beneficial and it is included in the package at no extra cost.
The 2357 is a complete electrical qualification which breaks down into 3 components:
- Knowledge Units
- Performance Unit – NVQ
- Independent Assessment Unit – AM2
Knowledge Units – to Level 3

The guided learning hours are only for guidance for the classroom taught option. Obviously these units can be done quicker than this depending on the pace, motivation, and level of learning of each candidate doing the distance learning option.
For each unit there is a certain amount of tasks which need to be completed.
These tasks are either Practical Assessments, Written Exams or Online Multi-choice exams.
