What is this qualification?

Qualification Title:  600/6724/X – EAL Level 2 Diploma in Electrical Installation (QCF)

This qualification is accredited by Ofqual at QCF Level 2


The Level 2 and 3 Diploma in Electrical Installation courses are the most comprehensive electrical courses available enabling you to learn everything you need to know to work within the industry, even if you have no electrical experience to start with.

These qualifications will aid the learner to progress within their chosen career and will greatly help them when looking for employment within the industry.  After completing the Level 2 and 3 Diploma courses many students go on to work within the industry either during their training or on completion of the courses.

This qualification allows the learner to acquire knowledge and craft skills of electrical installation.  It does not require occupational evidence from the workplace, so is suitable for learners who do not currently work within the electrical industry.  The qualification has been adapted from the QCF diploma within the Apprenticeship framework, so facilitates progression to the industry recognised qualification.

It will give the learner an opportunity to practice and be assessed on the installation of wiring systems together with the relevant theory of electrical installation.  The learner will have the opportunity to utilise the IET On-Site Guide with some of the units and also acquire the knowledge of electrical science and principles.


  • The Level 2 Diploma allows natural progression on to the Level 3 Diploma in Electrical Installation course.  On completion of these courses you will be able to progress within the industry and complete the Electrotechnical NVQ and AM2 qualifications whilst working.


  • The City & Guilds and EAL Level 2 and 3 Diploma qualifications are interchangeable, meaning that if you have completed the Level 2 with City & Guilds you could finish with the EAL Level 3 qualification and vice versa.


  • Both the EAL and City & Guilds qualifications are recognised by the Joint Industry Board (JIB) and by the competent person schemes such as the NICEIC and Napit.


  • EAL are well known within the electrical industry and have extensively linked up with the NICEIC.

This course is delivered at our training centre and consists of a mixture of practical sessions within our workshop and theory sessions within our training room.

This qualification involves on-screen examinations, practical assessments and a theory assignment.

The EAL assessments are taken on an ongoing basis throughout the length of this course, allowing the student to confidently focus on each step at a time.

The Level 2 Diploma has five mandatory units, which between them cover health and safety, electrical installation theory and technology, electrical installation methods, procedures and requirements, electrical installation craft skills and electrical science and principles.

Within the qualification the learner will have the opportunity to utilise the IET On-Site Guide and also be introduced to how regulations (including BS 7671) affect electrical installation.  The qualification covers standard circuits as described in the On-Site Guide.

At Vimartech Training we know how difficult it can be to get time off work to complete a course this long or to fit in retraining alongside current work and family commitments, this is why we offer this course as an evening class and one Saturday per month (arranged with the group).  This course takes about 12 months to complete.

Vimartech Training is a small training centre and we have small class sizes of no more that 10 students on each course, this allows students the time to learn, ask questions and practice what they have learnt within a supportive environment.  Many of our previous students have started working within the electrical industry whilst undertaking this course and have gone on to progress with their qualifications and their chosen career path.  At Vimartech Training we pride ourselves on the support we give to our students to enable them to confidently work within the trade.
