Logic Certification (LCL) approved centre, Training in Electrical , based in Nottingham, can now assess learners in the Level 3 award – Requirements for Electrical Installations to BS7671: 2008 (2011) – one of the awarding organisation’s courses recently approved under the QCF (Qualifications and Credit Framework).

Launched this June, the QCF award covers the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations and is a necessary requirement for operatives wishing to join some Electrical Registration Bodies, Competent Person Schemes or the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

Operating out of two locations in the region, including a state of the art centre at Nottingham Trent University, Training in Electrical delivers a range of electrical and associated renewable technology courses. Robert Hurley from Training in Electrical, said, “We are pleased to be the first Logic Certification QCF electrical training centre. Training in Electrical is passionate about learning and believe that the QCF framework will help our candidates realise their potential and develop their careers in a much more structured way.”

With a successful programme training solar photovoltaic installers, Training in Electrical also plans to deliver Logic Certification’s range of environmental QCF courses which are currently being introduced.

QCF is a new way of recognising skills and qualifications, enabling candidates to learn at their own pace along flexible routes. This is the first of many QCF qualifications to be accredited by Logic Certification, building on the success of its existing assessment programmes, such as gas ACS and Oftec Oil courses.
