Three new Logic Certification electrical qualifications have been recognised by the JIB as a route to obtaining an ECS card. All are Regulated RQF/QCF Level 3 Awards, covering 17th Edition Wiring Regulations, Initial Verification and Certification of Electrical Installations and Periodic Inspection and Testing.
Mark Krull, from Logic Certification, commented: "Having our qualifications validated by JIB for the ECS is a great achievement, which cements the quality of our courses and Logic Certification's commitment to serving the building services engineering sector. Over the past year we have worked hard to ensure our certification services are in-line with current standards, introducing a number of courses under the Qualifications and Credits Framework (note: now RQF). Now, electricians can look to Logic Certification approved centres to provide them with the training they need to trade safely and within the law."
The three qualifications are as follows:
- Level 3 Award in the Requirements for Electrical Installation BS7671: June 2008 (2011)
- Level 3 Award in the Initial Verification and Certification of Electrical Installations
- Level 3 Award in the Periodic Inspection, Testing, Condition Reporting and Certification of Electrical Installations
The Joint Industry Board (JIB) and Electrical Certification Scheme (ECS) are essential to setting and maintaining standards with the electrical industry. The ECS card provides a badge of competence for suitably trained electricians and the JIB helps to regulate relations between employers and employees, while striving to improve the electrical industry, its status and productivity. Logic Certification's alignment with these organisations confirms its contribution to ensuring trades' people have the correct qualifications to meet legislation and do their job properly.
Steve Brawley, chief executive of the JIB, concluded: "I am very pleased that Logic Certification approached the JIB to seek recognition of their qualifications under the terms of the ECS and I look forward to an enduring and mutually beneficial relationship between our respective institutions."
