For experienced workers, you will complete a skills scan to show your competence and complete a candidate background check to prove you have experience in the electrical field. Once this is finalised, a professional discussion will be carried out in the training centre before you start to complete a portfolio.

The portfolio can be completed at your own pace, and the length will depend upon how much work you can be exposed to in a specific time. In the portfolio, a file will be created to evidence the work you have completed in the field, then audited by the centre and the accreditation board.

Once the green light has been given, you will have earned to right to sit a final end point assessment called the AM2 exam to prove your competence and move on to the next step.

For those completing the Gold Card Package and are doing the normal NVQ method (2357), this usually lasts 12 months to complete the portfolio

The portfolio can be completed at your own pace, and the course length will depend on how much work you can be exposed to in a specific time. Like the NVQ Experienced Worker Route, you will have to evidence the work you have completed by taking photos and being audited.
