This is a work-based automotive qualification that assesses the competence and knowledge that auto electrical technicians require to perform their job role effectively on vehicles in all types of garages, dealerships and maintenance depots.
This Vocational Competence Qualification (VCQ) is an integral part of the IMI SSC Auto Electrical and Mobile Electrical Installation Apprenticeship Framework. Therefore learners (normally aged 16-25) who are keen to build a career in the industry can take this VCQ as part of the Apprenticeship framework.
This VCQ is based upon the IMI Sector Skills Council's National Occupational Standards for Auto Electrical and Mobile Electrical Installation.
This VCQ is a fundamental part of IMI SSC Maintenance and Repair Apprenticeship Framework. When the Level 2 Apprenticeship is completed, an apprentice can progress to a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship, or broaden their education and training in other ways from this firm base.
The knowledge component of this qualification is also independently assessed via online testing. The tests are mapped to each knowledge unit's learning outcomes and assessment criteria to ensure coverage. These tests are marked electronically by IMI.
