Domestic Electrician

The Domestic Electrician EWA is the assessment process to recognise occupational competence for people who have been working as a domestic electrician for over three years but haven’t been able to complete an apprenticeship, achieve an equivalent, recognised Level 3 vocational qualification or have qualifications from outside of the UK.

It’s available now from City & Guilds and EAL training centres across England, Northern Ireland and Wales.

Achievement of the Domestic Electrician EWA and its assessment of competence—the AM2ED—meets the criteria for an ECS Domestic Electrician gold card application. It will be recognised in the Electrotechnical Assessment Specification as equivalent to the Domestic Electrician apprenticeship.

The EWA was developed by an industry group comprising ECA, JIB, NET, Unite, Certsure, ECS, NAPIT, City and Guilds, EAL and the IET.
