EAL L3 Certificate in Power Supply and Distribution Cabling


This is an occupational qualification and is for learners who work in the electrotechnical industry carrying out either power supply distribution cabling or cable jointing and require a formal qualification to facilitate progression to becoming industry recognised in their role.  The content was created from working with employers, their representatives, and the Electrical JIB/ECS. This qualification requires occupational evidence from the workplace.

Learners for the cable jointing pathway must also undertake an occupational competence assessment of cable jointing administered by NET (not in the qualification) for application for the ECS card for their occupation.

Those who work in the industry carrying out either power supply cable installation or cable jointing and wish to gain industry recognition in their occupation.


The assessment of this qualification involves the learner providing sufficient valid and authentic occupational evidence attesting to the unit's requirements. The learner will also be expected to demonstrate acceptable job knowledge and understanding by successfully completing the underpinning knowledge and understanding questions in each unit. Practical/performance assessment contributes to approximately two-thirds of the assessments within the qualification. All assessments are pass or fail only.
