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 rather jumped the gun on declaring bonkers! The 2330 was really only the underpinning knowledge aspect to the 2356 NVQ which accredited the National Occupational Standards for installation work in the electrotechnical sector. 
    Still, for this particular candidate who served his full four year apprenticeship and has been working as an electrician for 15 years with an unbroken service record with a well-respected contracting outfit and who has achieved both the underpinning knowledge and, crucially, the end point assessment, AM2, it seems unfair that he cannot progress his aspirations to become a qualifying manager. Neither, by the way, can he obtain a JIB card.

    His only option is to sign up for the experienced worker qualification so that the boxes can be ticked! I am not sure if application  for a JIB card would require him to re-sit his AM2 as the experienced worker scheme has a slightly different format, the AM2E.

    Put your prices up guys!
