Electrical Installation level 1

QUALIFICATION OVERVIEW The CVQ Level 1 in Electrical Installation is for individuals whose electrical role requires well developed behavioural competencies but whose scope for independent decision making and for bringing about change is unlimited. They are likely to be in roles where they are required: 

● Perform interactive workplace communication

● Adhere to occupational health and safety requirements 

● Use graduated measuring devices, power tools and hand tools 

● Perform manual handling and lifting and housekeeping duties 

● Perform basic repair to electrical/ electronic apparatus 

● Install, terminate and connect electrical wiring 

● Disconnect and reconnect fixed wired electrical machinery, appliances and fixtures Normally persons working at Level 1 should be able to competently carry out simple, complex and routine work activities and to collaborate with others through groups and teams. The qualification covers competencies by providing services in Electrical Installation Level 1 such as being able to understand and carry out components of fabrication, machine handling, installation, maintenance repairs and diagnostic, business services, information technology and metal engineering while a safe and hygienic manner. Relevant occupations include: 

● Electrician Helper 

● Cable Puller The holders of this qualification will demonstrate a range of personal presentations and demonstrations of team work skills and literacy skills. To achieve this qualifications all core units must be achieved. Any elective completed will be awarded unit statement of competency.
