The best thing about completing my NVQ through XS Training was the overall simplicity of carrying out assessments and providing the evidence needed to complete the course.
Unlike so many other training providers out there, XS Training uses a brilliant online system called One File. Rather than printing out hundreds of pages for a paper portfolio, you simply upload evidence and it can be checked by your assessor at short notice, speeding up the whole process. My assessor was always able to respond to my messages in quick time, which was really assuring whenever I had any questions about the units. Carrying out remote site observations was also a huge plus, anyone working out on site, knows how frustrating it can be to get someone to visit you on site, so being able to carry out observations using video conferencing made it so easy. All you need is a mobile phone/good internet connection and you’re good to go. Overall, I would highly recommend XS Training.
Anyone considering NVQ or any kind of online supported learning need look no further than XS Training.
The team are supportive, knowledgeable and dedicated to helping people achieve success.
My computer skills are limited but the support, instructions and systems are easy to operate and understand. I was nervous about ever completing an onsite diary, but it was painless from start to finish.
I have tried other training providers and none have come close.
I decided to upgrade my JIB White Card to Gold last year and for that I contacted four training centres with national coverage from the JIB website: JTL – EAS UK Ltd – CTD Quickstep Ltd & XS Training Ltd
I wrote one email explaining my situation and what are my goals and send that e-mail to all four centres. Within minutes, XS Training replied back, I remember it was during weekend, out of normal working hours. Not to mention that one centre replied after a week! David answered all my question and I didn’t hesitate to sign with XS Training to start my City and Guilds 2356-99 level 3 in Electrotechnical Services for the Experienced Worker, or EAL Level 3 Diploma in Electrotechnical Services Experienced Worker Assessment Route.
They allowed me to pay in installments using Paypal which was very good for me.
My assessor helped me a lot with my Portfolio. We had live streaming observation from my place of work, there were moments when I couldn’t have live observation from work site from different reason, he accepted to take pictures of my work and have a later professional discussion online using Vidyo, usually on Friday night after work. Everything went easy and smoothly due to XS Training’s excellent staff.
I want to thank you all from XS Training for helping me getting my JIB GOLD Card.
PS. So far, after I spoke with many of my work college, my price paid to XS Training was the cheapest comparing with what others paid for the same course so that is another reason I’m happy I’ve chosen XS Training. I recommend them to all!
Firstly, thank you to everyone involved at XS Training, I know it is a team behind it all. My experience has been totally enjoyable and hassle free. XS Training picked the bones out of the bitter experience I had to endure with other, so called training organisations, and turned my NVQ into a professional and smoothly executed experience.
The online consultation process is a massive step forward! My online assessor made the NVQ, and the whole process, relaxed and enjoyable, and also flexible, I have nothing but praise for the whole easy to use, easy to work, and professional experience, all of this was down to his happy and helpful attitude.
I would not hesitate to recommend XS Training to anyone wanting to further themselves, and I will definitely contact them again.
Thank you to everyone involved.
I was quite nervous about using a computer based system to gain the qualification as I’m not that clued up with IT. However, when I got stuck into it, and with the support of David (who was always on the end of the phone with advice if I needed it), I found it a really straightforward and easy system to use. I’ve achieved the qualification much quicker than I thought was possible.
Thanks XS Training, I’ll definitely recommend you to others.
The guys here at XS Training were superb when it came to replying fast and never missed a question I had for them. They certainly looked after me and guided me every step of the way in terms of evidence I needed to get and reasonable time targets for me to achieve them by.
All in all I’m happy I have used them to gain my qualification when working such a busy schedule the system they had in place was manageable and easy for anyone.
Throughout the period that I have taken to complete my NVQ, Stuart, David and my personal Assessor David Piercy, have been instrumental in me achieving the certificate. They expertly guided me through on how to use the XS Training software, which upon reflection is idiot proof and very user friendly. All previously mentioned persons have practically been available to talk to or communicate with on a 24hr basis.
Every time I submitted a piece of work, made a request or asked a question via the website I got a reply almost immediately. If not, then within a couple of hours. This certainly helps with motivation, as it encourages you more when you see your percentage of completion increase and you get closer to that goal of 100%. They have always answered my calls and been very encouraging and helpful. They put your mind and worries at rest when you may perhaps feel that you are not achieving anything or going anywhere with it all.
That being said, it is still you that has to do the work, but it certainly helps when you have good advice and support from good people around you and you can’t get better than those at XS Training.
From one very satisfied, happy and now FULLY QUALIFIED electrician.
I just wish to say a few words and thank XS Training for the support and guidance I received from your company in completing my NVQ 3 in Electrical Installation.
I was apprehensive before I started the course but with the help of Jamie, my online assessor who guided me through the various units I had to complete with prompt and helpful advice, I found the course enjoyable and rewarding and would definitely recommend any Electrician who was in my situation and needed to get there JIB card to use XS Training.
Thank you guys so much for providing a brilliant service. I really don’t think i would have been able to complete my NVQ without the assistance of XS Training. My assessor Paul was a pleasure to work with throughout and provided me all the guidance i needed to help me complete my NVQ.
If you’re looking for a fast, convenient and reliable way to complete an NVQ, I would highly recommend XS training to anyone!
I would like to thank XS Training especially Jamie for all the help and support that was given to me during my course to gain my NVQ level 3. I would highly recommend XS Training in the future.
Dear XS Training Team, thank you for all your help and advice during my NVQ 3. Many thanks to Jamie Gibbs , Stuart Driver and David Alexis – what a team! I would recommend XS Training to all up and coming Electricians without hesitation. They provided a very good service and were very helpful throughout. I have already recommended your service to a good friend!
XS Training and their staff have been incredibly professional, effective and enthusiastic during the entire process. It’s amazing to think that it has taken little less than three months to get fully qualified.
I had a very tight schedule in which to complete the qualification due to my partner and I moving aboard. Their expert and skillful staff, together with an extremely well polished online platform, ensured that communication between myself and my assessor was smooth, quick and efficient.
Their assessors are realistic with the work loads, keen, lively and were always able to accommodate a schedule that worked around my full time job. My assessor was engaged, well tuned in and genuinely energetic in helping me to complete the qualification.
Getting qualified with XS Training has been so straight forward.
Having just completed my Electrical Level 3 NVQ I would like to say thank you to XS Training and their staff. Thanks go to David Alexis for the smooth transition at the beginning of the course, with making the payment plan and introducing me to my assessor Jamie Gibbs. And I would like to say a big thank you to Jamie, who throughout has been a massive help in completing my course and responding very quickly / professionally to any queries I had.
The online ONEFILE system, is brilliantly set up and so easy to use and understand. It can save so much time, compared to travelling to a college, and you can do everything from the comfort of your own home. Would not hesitate to recommend XS Training to anyone who’s considering taking an electrical online course!
I am writing to thank you and the whole XS team very much for all your support and help throughout the NVQ 2356-99. I managed to complete the whole course in just 7 months from start to finish, but I couldn’t have done it without your help.
I am also very glad I chose the platinum package as it freed me up to work full time, gather evidence and study for the AM2. You came very highly recommended by a good friend and I now see why.
I will definitely be recommending XS Training highly to any work colleague’s looking to gain their Qualifications. Thanks to you all.
Hi Stuart, I would like to thank you for all your help in getting me through my NVQ.
As a more “mature” student I have been putting it off for ages as just didn’t have the time or confidence in writing out my portfolio myself.
I now wish I had done this years ago with yourselves as it proved to be a completely painless process.
Previous experience with other training centres has taught me that once you have paid your fees the ongoing support after that is somewhat minimal. However, when I first messaged Paul with what some might consider a trivial question, I expected to wait a week for a reply but was pleased to get a response within the hour, not just a few words but an answer with supporting literature as well.
Subsequent emails to Paul the response was sometimes within minutes, this was very important to me as when I actually managed to sit down to do my paperwork / evidence etc it was great to be able to keep focused on this once receiving a quick response without having to plan more time to prepare everything all over again.
Thanks again for all your help and especially to Paul my assessor for guiding me through this “not so” painful process.
From my initial enquiry to XS Training through to completion of my qualification, David was helpful, supportive and available to communicate with at all time of the day or night, and even at weekends. I cannot fault the service, value and support given by David and the staff at XS Training.
I would recommend them, and would be happy to be used as a reference. Thank you for the great service, keep up the great work.
Absolutely awesome… that’s the service you get from this company. Assessors available day and night to get you through your NVQ, finished mine in about 10 weeks was hard work but well worth it.
Certs landed on the doormat today, big thanks to David Piercy and David Alexis for all your help keep me posted on the NVQ 2396 thanks again.
I have just completed my NVQ level 3 in electrical installation with XS Training and I would recommend them to anyone. I arranged for a site visit with Jamie to help me complete my NVQ and he was great it was well worth getting the site visit. Many thanks to David who was always there when I needed help.
Thank you for the great news. And I also want to say big thanks to you and Jamie.
I received great support and although English is my second language I didn’t have much difficulties in completing the online diary as it was quite simple.
Just to say a massive thank you to Jamie whilst completing the NVQ 2356 Level 3 in Electrical Maintenance.
At first glance of the e-Portfolio I found it pretty daunting, but after my initial induction with Jamie I got to grips with it pretty quickly. I won’t say that this is an easy course and it certainly took some hours to complete. At some point I didn’t ever think I would finish the tasks. However Jamie was helpful and professional at all times, extremely patient with all my queries which were answered promptly, and for pointing me in the right direction when further information was required. I would certainly recommend this course and XS Training to work colleagues who are thinking of doing their NVQ Level 3.
Many thanks again
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Stuart, David A and David P for the continued support that I have received throughout the duration of this qualification.
I have found XS Training excellent in all aspects of the training, not least of all in the flexibility and the availability of support out of hours as I would have had difficulty fitting in with work otherwise.
I will have no hesitation recommending XS training to people in the future as the training has been exactly as described by you during our first telephone conversation before I started the course.
The NVQ level 3 is a very good course to do. I recently passed the course with yourselves and it took a little longer than I planned, but that was down to me. Very good advice and if I was unsure of anything I only had to send a message or ring the assessor.
I have just finished my 2356 NVQ which i did online via XS Training Limited. This was the first time I’d tried to do a qualification online.
I have to say it was a pleasure to do due to the support of the excellent training providers. I would not hesitate to recommend this company to assist you in completing this important qualification. Help is always on hand whether it be over the phone or via email. The assessors are there to get you through the NVQ as quickly as possible.
Thank you XS Training.
Through XS Training I was given the opportunity to take my NVQ 2356 in Electrical Installation online – and at a good price 🙂
At the beginning I was given my induction to the course and training services by my assessor who was terrific and I knew straight away XS Training were the perfect choice in training provider for me. Having now completed my NVQ I cannot thank them enough, they were excellent throughout, always available for help and advice when needed, could not have asked for better.
Hello XS Training Team.
First of all I would like to thank XS Training team for being very supportive over the whole process of the online electrical NVQ 3 course. There were no delays in responding to any questions I had. My assessor provided excellent guidance throughout the whole course pointing unclear or needed improvement things. Anyone needing really good guidance and support in this online course, I would recommend XS Training LTD.
I have completed my NVQ 3 with XS Training and found them to be very professional with great communication from start to finish.
From the outset speaking to my assessor David, my questions and queries were dealt with extremely helpfully. My course took around 8 months to complete, in which time feedback was promptly given at all stages helping me progress through with the training.
I would highly recommend XS Training to anybody interested in taking the NVQ 3 2356.
I’ve been impressed at the simplicity of this NVQ.
The hardest thing about this NVQ is obtaining the evidence and the annoyance of bringing a camera to work.
With this NVQ it’s so simple to collect the evidence on your smart phone.
After completing the first assessment I found it very easy to go on and get the evidence for what I needed for the few.
Well happy with XS Training and would definitely recommend this to anyone trying to complete their NVQ3.
I have just completed the NVQ 2356 level 3 with XS Training and it took me about 8 months from start to finish. My assessor was very knowledgeable and provided much needed feedback when the assessments were submitted. At the beginning it seemed that there was going to be a mountain to climb , but I found once I got into the site diary’s it all became clear what was needed and I moved through the NVQ at a good speed.
I would have no hesitation in recommending XS Training to anyone thinking of doing the NVQ 2356.
I enjoyed doing my NVQ 3 Electrical Installation through XS Training Ltd.
The guys were all friendly and always willing to assist when I got stuck.
Thanks to Dave, for helping me complete the NVQ Level 3, so now I can apply for the correct JIB card.
Great help and support throughout the course.
Happy days, just completed my NVQ! Could not of done it without the help and support from David.
I was an Adult Learner coming into something blind in 2011, and a very nervous 52 year old, you thought all your training had already been done at my age, but how wrong was I?
I was told by my new employer I had to achieve my NVQ Level 3 in Electrical Installation at short notice within 6 months or this would affect my Salary when my Council Contract was transferred over to the new Employer in April 2012, I had to act fast. I contacted David and Stuart of XS Training Ltd who sign me up at a cost of £600, the best money I ever spent, they put me through all the 8 units and advised me on all the training I required to achieve my NVQ Level 3 in Electrical Installation.
I am telling you that was the best move I ever made in my life, the support and training I have received was second to none I was always reassured, if I had a problem they would always phone or send me a message within two hours and would go through each problem step by step with you, the support I was given was exceptional, I even phoned Stuart at 22.30pm one night in a panic and he was on holiday but he still managed to calm me down and talked me through what I needed to do, nothing was too much for these two guy’s if Stuart was not there, David would be for you, they would contact you well within two hours they were both brilliant with me.
I would recommend this company to any one whose unsure of what they can achieve. I am telling you. You could reach for the Sky with this support I highly recommend XS Training Ltd I even received a letter telling me they was both very proud of me and what I had achieved, it brought a tear to my eyes very comforting message and fulfillment of achievement for me.
Thank you David & Stuart and XS Training
The NVQ portfolio system really is excellent you don’t have to wait till your next day at college or have to phone to try and get hold of your tutor. I have just finished my NVQ 3 Electrical Installation with XS training. I was studying a paper based NVQ 2356 with a local private training centre, it was very expensive and I was really struggling to even talk to my tutor. The NVQ portfolio system really is excellent you don’t have to wait till your next day at college or have to phone to try and get hold of your tutor. At the touch of a button you can get almost instant feedback. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at XS Training for their help and support.
If you are considering doing a Course with XS Training I would recommend them very highly.
I would definitely recommend using XS Training for the NVQ Level 3 in Electrical Installation, they delivered exactly what they promised and are a straight forward uncomplicated company to do business with.
Using the OneFile online portfolio was easy to use and allowed me to work on the NVQ at a time of my choice and eliminated the need for time consuming formatting used in the traditional paper style NVQ portfolio. My assessor was always very helpful and responded to my site diaries quickly.
I would like to take the time out to say thank you to all of the team at XS Training and my assessor David for assisting me to complete my 2356 NVQ 3 in Electrical Installation.
From my initial call enquiring about the NVQ I have found the company to be professional & helpful from returning calls and answering any questions which I had. The whole experience with XS Training has been pleasant, informative & very easy to understand & work with. I have & will continue to recommending the service to others. Thanks XS Training.
I completed my NVQ level 3 with XS at the end of last year and found the whole experience enjoyable. It was made a lot easier by the help and advice I received from David and Stuart.
I then applied for my JIB ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION GOLD CARD and QS status, so thanks again to David and Stuart for helping me achieve My Lifetime Goal – which I wouldn’t have got without their help.
I can recommend XS to anyone who wishes to gain a Qualification which will help them achieve their goals.
Thanks again XS
Just completed my NVQ with XS Training it didn’t take long at all and all the help I got was really good. They were very fast replying to any questions.
I would recommend this to anyone thinking of doing their NVQ
Finished my NVQ 3 this week and have been very impressed with the whole set up of XS Training. Jamie Gibbs has been brilliant and his guidance was vital!
Onefile was very user friendly and I can’t praise XS Training enough.
Thank you all very much
After being let down badly by my local College I contacted XS Training, I cannot praise them enough! From the start I had the course and the one file system explained in great detail giving me the tools to complete the course at my own pace.
On completing each unit or section I received timely feedback which was normally on the same day I submitted the units. Feedback was clear, helpful and constructive giving me a clear picture as to what I needed to correct before resubmitting the evidence. The One File system is very easy to use and available 24 hours a day from anywhere with a internet connection.
I completed the NVQ 2356 in just over two weeks, it was hard work, but with the support from David I achieved my goal. I would never make the mistake of signing up for a course at a further education college again, XS Training provide a professional business service second to none which will meet your individual needs.
Many thanks for all your help
I would like to say a few words about the service, help & advice which I received throughout this qualification.
The service was exceptional & during my telephone induction with Jamie, I was shown how to use the OneFile e-portfolio service & how to go about completing my site diaries. The e-portfolio system took a little getting used to, but after the first few units had been completed, it became a doddle.
The course is not easy & it took a lot of hours, but thanks to the help, advice & support I received from my assessor (Jamie) throughout the NVQ, I completed it within only a few months.
Jamie guided me in the right direction & replied to any of my queries promptly & I would like to take this opportunity to say thanks to everyone at XS Training. I would recommend this training provider to anyone who is thinking of taking this qualification in the future & using the e-portfolio system has made it easier than I thought it would ever have been.
I found that using the online NVQ portfolio offered by XS Training to be very easy and simple to use.
Although a little daunting at first, the help and advice given to me from David was excellent and I found that after a few days of using the software that it was actually very simple.
I particularly liked the fact that you can monitor your own progress which allows you to know exactly what units you need to still cover.
I took all the photographic evidence on my smart phone and then I could work at my own pace. It was so easy to upload the photos and then write about them.
The whole process took me about five months to complete.
I would definitely recommend XS Training to anyone who is looking to complete this type of course.
Thank you to you both,
Thank you to all at XS Training for providing me with outstanding support every step of the way during my NVQ. I highly recommend XS Training to anyone looking to complete an NVQ, Their prices are affordable, their support is first rate, they respond quickly to emails, messages and telephone calls.
Excellent all round service.
Thanks for your input during the course. I would like to thank my assessor for all his help and being available at all times throughout the course. I found the portfolio setup very easy to use after the information given to me on my induction. I would highly recommend XS Training to anyone who is wanting to do a course with them – excellent throughout!
I would just like to thank you and Stuart for all your help throughout the course. You have made filling out the NVQ a lot more straight forward and less stressful than I had expected and I will be advising anyone who needs the NVQ to take it with yourselves as it is a great service you provide.
Once again many thanks,
XS Training provides excellent course delivery and assistance in completing the NVQ 2356. I highly recommend using them to anyone who wishes to gain an NVQ. All my emails were replied to very quickly and course assessor marked my NVQ SD’S within a day or two.
XS Training made the entire experience pleasant and stress free.
I can’t thank you enough.
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the support you have given me during my NVQ3 in Electrical Installations.
The online system you use (Onefile) and Jamie Gibbs my assessor proved to be invaluable in obtaining my qualification. Messages were responded to very quickly and helpful guidance on inclusion of the correct terminology and information on my assignments has made the process very pain free and straightforward.
I would highly recommend you to future potential candidates looking to achieve this recognised qualification.
I wish you and your team all the best for the future…
I would like to thank the staff at XS Training for their great support during my time undertaking the City and Guilds NVQ 2356. David Piercy my appointed tutor was fantastic and a very reliable person at any time of the day he was also very helpful to myself regarding all my assessments.
I would fully recommend anyone who hasn’t completed their NVQ 2356 to do so at XS Training. In future any courses I need to take then my first port of call will be XS Training Ltd .
Hi David and Jamie.
This course was perfect for me and allowed me to complete my electrician qualification at my own pace, I can now apply for my JIB electrician grade card.
The help from Jamie throughout this training was second to none and I would and have recommended your course to friends in the same position as me in the trade. Thank you again for helping me to achieve this qualification.
Thanks very much for your quick assessment feedback and great support throughout my NVQ 3.
XS Training has been a excellent and flexible way for me to learn and gain a valuable qualification while working full time in the industry – and I will definitely recommend your online course to my work colleagues.
Many thanks to you and the rest of the team at XS Training.
I like to say a big thank you to all the team that works at XS Training an especially to my assessor Stuart for helping me complete my NVQ 3 in electrical installation.
It may have took me longer than I wished due to home problems, but use guys was very helpful and always on hand if I had any questions or queries and fast to reply to my assessments an messages.
I would advise anyone wanting to get this qualification to choose XS Training I made the right choice after hearing about XS Training through word of mouth on site. I downloaded the Onefile uploader app to my phone and it made life a lot easier.
XS Training is a very professionally run company. I’ve recommend a lot of my friends and work mates to do their NVQ with XS Training. Many thanks
Thank you for my certificate it looks amazing I’m so happy I’ve finally got it. All of you at XS Training are amazing.
I would just like to say a big thank you for all the help and support I have received whilst carrying out this course I would not have got through the course without it.
I cannot recommend XS Training Ltd enough and I will be looking for other courses that I can take with them.
My name is Josue Estrada and I am a student at Greenwich Community College.
XS Training was the best choice for the NVQ LEVEL 3, it was cheaper and more convenient and there were no visits. Visits take up time and some employers do not like that stuff as like myself they would have to do an induction to the construction site which it cost money to the employer.
The assessor given to you by XS Training is very helpful and you will get your NVQ Units feedback within 3 days and sometimes the same day, so you can correct your mistakes or update whatever you need to update. I advise you to go with XS Training.
I am the only one in my class that has finished the NVQ LEVEL 3.
Hi, I have just completed my online NVQ3 with XS Training and would like to thank all the staff involved. This is the first time I have done a course online and was a little concerned on how I would do.
From the initial introduction to the end of the course I found the assessors to be brilliant, they were always available for any questions (at any time) and made the experience seem so easy.
I would highly recommend XS training to anybody thinking of doing a course with them and have recommended a few people already. To anybody debating if they should choose XS Training, DO IT!!!
Thanks again to all the staff.
I have just completed the NVQ Level 3 with XS Training. My instructor was Jamie, he was very knowledgeable, replying to messages quickly and on the other end of the phone when needed. I found the web site very easy to use and I’m not great with computers! You do need quite a lot of photos, but once you have completed a few units, you will soon learn what evidence you will need to complete the rest.
I completed the course in just over 6 months, but had a break in the middle. You could easily complete sooner if you’re willing to put the time in. I’ve recommended XS Training to 2 work colleges, they are both well under way with it too.
Thanks for all your help guys
Thank you to XS Training for providing this method of completing this NVQ qualification.
It is a great service to use, providing you with all the guidance and help needed to complete this qualification.
I would highly recommend this company to anybody thinking of starting their NVQ level 3 – well worth the price for this excellent service they’re giving.
Many thanks to XS training
I Would like to thank you for all for your personal help over the phone and through the online Onefile.
I would recommend anyone interested in completing their NVQ to go through XS Training very affordable price compared to other sites and colleges.
With over the phone help at anytime and a very easy platform to produce your portfolio as quick as possible.
Thanks again Guys
