Electrical Installation Studies City & Guilds Level 2 Diploma at Wirral Metropolitan College

Course description

If you are looking to train as a fully qualified electrician installing in Commercial, Industrial and domestic locations, the City & Guilds 2365 course could be for you.

This is now the default qualification for the traditional route to becoming an electrician whether or not you are employed by an electrical contractor.

Please note at the end of the course you will only have the status of an Electricians Mate.

Course content

The level 2 & 3 2365 courses replace the former very successful City & Guilds 2330. It mainly differs from the other option of the City & Guilds 2357 in that it does not contain the NVQ and AM2.

  • Industrial - such as research/development parks, heavy manufacturing, buildings, factories.
  • Domestic - such as houses, flats, bungalows, renewable, solar PV
