Course Description

Experienced Worker Assessment

City & Guilds 2346-03 Level 3 Electrotechnical Experienced Worker Qualification

The Experienced Worker Assessment (EWA) is based around apprenticeship standards but has been created specifically for workers that already have site experience and electrical qualifications. A key benefit of the EWA is that an electrician’s existing qualifications, skills and experience can count towards the qualification criteria.

To be eligible for this course candidates must:
  • have worked as an electrician for at least 5 years
  • have previously achieved relevant technical qualifications such as the City & Guilds 2360, 2351, 2330 or 2365

Experienced Worker Qualification
You will need to provide evidence of competent performance from your day to day site work.

Onsite observation –  Your qualified electrotechnical assessor will arrange to visit your workplace and observe you working. This will be arranged at a mutually convenient time and will be planned so that you can cover a good range of work.

Professional discussion – During this process you will provide photographic evidence of work that you have completed.  You will review your photos with your assessor and record your explanations and answers to any assessor questions.

Witness testimony – An expert witness may be asked to authenticate and and support your claims of competent performance. This may be your qualifying supervisor or a qualified electrician that you have worked with.
