Crediting Electrotechnical Competence (CEC)

If you are, or have been working as an Installation Electrician and have a substantial amount of years of experience in the trade, outwith your electrical apprenticeship, ensure that your competence is recognised.

This scheme is primarily for
practicing electricians who want to obtain industry-recognised qualifications, allowing them to qualify for SJIB grading. The CEC scheme enables candidates to have their previous experience and/or qualifications assessed, so that any skills or qualification requirements can be identified. The candidate can then upgrade their skills either at a college or in the workplace. Once qualified, candidates can then apply for an SJIB grade card as an electrician.

If you are a practicing electrician and have substantial experience please download the CEC Guidelines and Application Form.
