NICEIC. NAPIT no can do!

One of the very capable chaps on my 2396 course has been refused application to both NICEIC and NAPIT. Not one of those 5 week wonder graduates but someone with a load of unbroken experience with a well known large contractor and the NVQ 2330-07 Level 3 Certificate in Electrotechnical Technology Installation (Buildings and Structures) dated July 2007 along with his AM2. Simple reason given was that the NVQ is no longer recognised! 
That is bonkers as it was the foundation stone for competence recognition for thousands of electricians! Does anyone know why the qualification is not recognised?

  • I will rephrase that, given the schemes reputation of being money grabbers and scams, I sure they would welcome someone who would potentially be paying them thousands of pounds over the next few years if the rules stipulated in the EAS document allowed them to.

    So I guess the answer to JP’s question is:

    The IET as lead authors and:

    British Security Industry Association (BSIA)
    Certsure LLP (trading as NICEIC and ELECSA)
    City & Guilds
    CORGI – trading as Corgi Technical Services and AESM Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA)
    Electrical Contractors’ Association of Scotland (SELECT) Electrical Safety First (ESF)
    Excellence, Achievement & Learning Limited (EAL)
    Fire Industry Association (FIA)
    Health and Safety Executive (HSE)
    Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET)
    Joint Industry Board for the electrical contracting industry (JIB)
    Logic Certification Ltd (LCL Awards)
    Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG)
    National Association of Professional Inspectors and Testers (NAPIT)
    NAPIT Registration Ltd
    Oil Firing Technical Association (OFTEC)
    Society of Public Architecture, Construction, Engineering and Surveying (SPACES) Stroma Installer Certification Ltd
    United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS)
    Welsh Government

    Discounting the two money grabbers of course.

  • No Andy the IET are not the lead authors. The IET logo no longer appears on the document.

    The EAS meeting is chaired by someone from Certshure.

    For my next question how many of those organisations you listed are subsidiary companies of one of the bodies you mentioned or have financial links?
