JTL has launched a new apprenticeship in fire, emergency and security systems that leads to a recognised Level 3 NVQ qualification. The course will be delivered in two locations – The Midlands and Essex.
The Fire, Emergency and Security Systems Apprenticeship will provide apprentices with a clear pathway towards becoming a fully qualified technician, engineer or installer of alarm, fire, emergency and security systems.
This Level 3 apprenticeship provides a choice of pathways, a core module and an end point assessment (EPA). There is also an opportunity to transfer Level 2 City and Guilds Electronic Security and Emergency Systems (1853) and Providing Electronic Security and Emergency Systems (2882) to this new apprenticeship.
Entry requirements will be determined by the employer. Apprentices without level 2 English and Maths will need to achieve this level prior to completion of their apprenticeship.
This apprenticeship is currently available in the Midlands and London regions. The typical completion time is 36 months.
