Why should I take this course with EC4U?
Our Level 3 Testing and Periodic Package has been developed to give you the most comprehensive combination of theoretical classroom learning and hands on practical experience in our purpose built workshops. Our Level 3 Inspection and Testing workshops were designed with this qualification in mind ensuring you will get plenty of opportunities to practice and fine tune your testing skills on our custom built rigs.
Our course runs for seven days consecutively at our training centre (either Monday-Friday, then Monday-Tuesday or Thursday-Friday, then Monday-Friday) with your assessments being completed on the last 2 days. With the EAL course there is no written assignment and therefore you will find out if you have passed on the afternoon of the final day.
For further information please see the FAQs on our course page.
