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 or achieve an equivalent, recognised Level 3 vocational qualification.
It’s available now from EAL training centres across England, Northern Ireland and Wales, and from City & Guilds training centres later this year.
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.
