|Q||Hi, my employer has requested I get a level 3 b-tec in mechanical and electrical engineering, can I do the 3 unit courses at the same time?|
|A||In reply: You can, but it makes more sense to go for a 9 or 12 unit Mech & Electrical certifate or diploma that includes all the units you want to do, rather than doing 2 separate courses.|
|Q||I am looking to work towards a lvl 3 cert in both Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. Am I able to do this?
I was intending to work towards it on a unit by unit basis. Completing the necessary units for both Mech and Elec. Will I have to complete the shared mandatory units (Maths, Health and Safety and Communication) twice, for each certificate?
|A||In reply: You best option is to start with a 3 unit Mech foundation award and when complete, upgrade it to Mech & Elec (General) engineering by adding 3 more units for a full Award.
This way there will be no duplication of units.
|Q||Do you accept advanced learner loans for the engineering qualifications?|
|A||In reply: We currently do not accept advanced learner loans|
|Q||Can a 30 year old student with career experience go from a level 2 nvq diploma to a hnc without completing a level 3|
|A||In reply: It would not be a wise move to skip level 3, as some of the topic would simply be too difficult such as mathematics.
We would recommend that you spend an extra year completing a 6-unit BTEC level 3 Award in order to prepare for your HNC
- L5 BTEC HND Eng
- L4 BTEC HNC Eng
- L3 BTEC Eng (12 & 18 -unit)
- L3 BTEC Eng (9-unit)
- L3 BTEC Eng (6-unit)
- L3 BTEC (1 & 3-unit)
- L4/5 HNC/D Business
