    I have just signed up for ERR training. They say I will get a lvl2 city and guilds and then nvq3. It's part theory by studying at home and part practical. It would take about 2 years to complete as part-time.

    My question is: are they genuine? Will I get the proper qualifications and would anyone employ me?

    Thank you.

    Probably not.
    Have they told you how you will complete your portfolio.
    Probably not.

    Hi, I am just reading the T&Cs now because I was wondering the same. They provide the onsite NVQ assessment. Prior to that I have to arrange to undertake 2 maintenance tasks and 4 fault fixing tasks. I understand this to be the portfolio?

    Is it hard to find this kind of work once I get my lvl 2?

    Or are they not requiring enough evidence of work for the NVQ3 to be meaningful?

    I am still within my 14 day cancellation period. I only started to read about these companies after I signed up.

    I get the feeling this may be a scam, but I would like to check before I cancel everything, just in case it is a legit training opportunity.

    You can’t complete Level 2 ,without working in the field for 12 months.
    Your better off doing a course at your local college.

    Ok, thank you. I will cancel that and go see my local college. I feel a bit silly now, these guys are very good salesmen.

    Dont be daft. You've had the good sense to ask and not be drawn in by the BS.

    It is NOT easy. You do NOT have a guaranteed job at the end of your training. However, with your attitude you stand a better chance than most because I do not sense the 'entitlement' so many others have.

    The very best of luck to you whatever you do ;)
