This qualification is ideal for engineers and others working in this industry. It will enable you to develop and demonstrate your technical knowledge and skills.

You must be aged 16 or over to register for this qualification.

A City & Guilds qualification is proof that you have the right skill to do your job well.

You can be confident your qualification is well respected within your industry.

City & Guilds qualifications are engaging and rewarding, and can lead to a whole range of fulfilling careers.

The level 2 Certificate is intended for personnel employed in an engineering position within one or more of the following specialist areas of the electronic security and emergency systems industry

Level 3 has been designed to support engineers in more senior roles in the electronic security and emergency systems industry e.g. Project/Contract Managers, Technician Engineers/Senior Installation Engineers and Supervisors, Sales Engineers, Commercial Managers, Site/Workshop Managers.

To achieve the level 2 qualification there is no need to attend college or lectures. You will be issued with a number of books for you to work through, with quizzes and tests to complete as you progress.

These will build into a portfolio of evidence, which will cover all aspects of your qualification.

Our assessor will visit you on set dates on sites that you select, so you can truly study as you work.

Your portfolio

Your portfolio will consist of an a4 ring binder and into this you need put in photographs of your work, answers to quizzes, details of actual work you have carried out and copies of the reports from your assessor.

The Level 2 Certificate in Providing Electronic Security and Emergency Systems qualification is comprised of two pathways. To achieve either pathway a minimum of 21 credits must be successfully completed from the units below. Different units are allocated different credits.

This will be discussed and a plan formulated during the first assessor visit.

Although the first visit is an important part of the assessment planning process no charge is made for this visit if you decide not to continue. If you decide the 2882 is the path for you a learning contract will be drawn up.

To achieve the qualification, assessments of real life installations are required, so it is important that you have sites that we can inspect to achieve this. With careful planning it is possible to achieve the qualification with three to four site visits.

The units to be covered are listed below. Some units are compulsory some are optional, but there is no need to make a plan until we have visited you.
