Default help! ARTC NOT GRANTED

my husband and I spent 6 months putting together an application for ARTC to have it rejected last week. My husband did three years at college, got his NVQ3 but did not do the AM2 so never got an apprentice completion certificate.

The letter we got from TRA says we had no proof he had completed an apprenticeship despite having the NVQ3 and NAPIT full scope. They then said JIB card would help prove along with completion certificate etc.

Has anyone tried with just a JIB gold card and not formal apprenticeship completion docs?
Can you sit the AM2 anywhere?
We are still waiting for our case officer to call us...the TRA are really difficult to deal with!

Any advice welcome, not sure where to go now!

Hi there,
I'm pretty sure that the TRA state in the ARTC applicant guidelines that you must have served an apprenticeship of at least 4 years duration.
When I applied for mine I couldn't get a reference from my employer so alongside various bits of documentation I contacted the JIB who , for 15 pounds, wrote a letter stating that I had served and completed an apprenticeship. Also, on the reverse of my JIB gold card it state's, "completed apprenticeship".
Was the apprenticeship overseen by JIB or another organisation such as CITB, JTL?
Regards Derren

Hi thanks Derren - TRA finally called back looks like because my husband is 2 months short of the required 4 years experience they are going to make him go the recognition of prior learning route even though the JIB would consider him a qualified electrician!!

Do you know anyone who has done this or how it works?? I haven't seen any threads on it
thanks

if the TRA says he has NOT completed the required 4 x years apprenticeship then you may find he shall have to do a couple more years as a top up course to gain the required amount of trade time
