City & Guilds 2365 – Level 2 Diploma in Electrical Installations (Buildings and Structures)
This Level 2 qualification is designed for new entrants to the industry. For aspiring electricians not already started on an Electrical Apprenticeship, not yet in a job working in the Electrical Industry, or with very little, if any, experience.
Successful completion of this qualification will provide you with the practical skills and knowledge and a firm foundation to progress further – and ultimately onto a qualification such as the Level 3 NVQ Diploma in Electrotechnical Technology (2357) which can lead to becoming a fully qualified electrician.
You must be over the age of 18 to start this course and it is recommended to have achieved Level 2 in English and Maths. However, this is not a requirement and the course can still be successfully completed without any prior qualifications.
C&G 2365 Level 2 Diploma Learning Units
There are five subject units within the 2365 Level 2 Diploma:
- Unit 201: Health and safety in building services engineering
- Unit 202: Principles of Electrical Science
- Unit 203: Electrical installations technology
- Unit 204: Installation of wiring systems and enclosures
- Unit 210: Understand how to communicate with others within building services engineering
Purchase of the Full Online Course includes all these units plus registration to City & Guilds. However, unique to XS Training, we have also made each unit/course available to buy separately – which you can do so from the individual unit/course details below.
This provides greater flexibility for the new learner to control their own pace of learning – and at the same time their financial outlay.
C&G 2365 Full Online Course + City & Guilds Registration – £1900 + VAT
– or 10 x Monthly Payments of £190 + VAT
The course is accessible for 12 months from the day of purchase.
Our C&G 2365 Level 2 Diploma in Electrical Installations is approved for ELCAS funding. Under the scheme members of the Armed Forces can receive financial support to contribute towards their higher-level learning.
C&G 2365 Units Overview & Opportunity To Purchase Separately
All of our courses that make up the five separate units of the City & Guilds Level 2 Diploma in Electrical Installations are available to purchase individually. We have done this to allow the new learner greater flexibility when taking their very first steps to becoming a fully qualified electrician.
However, when purchasing your first course you will also need to register with City & Guilds in order to take the final exam to complete the course. You only need to pay for C&G registration ONCE, not for each course/unit.
For even greater flexibility and budgeting, there is a monthly payment option on this and all our courses.
