I did it in 2009 as part of my level 3.

I thought City and Guilds were on about getting rid of it and replacing it with something else?

I'm sure i read that somewhere.

They can't take knowledge away from you.
If you are given the chance jump at it. Any training is always benificial.

As far as the industry is concerned a level three is the only qualification
that alows you to work unsupervised. With a level two you are deemed
still to be in training and need supervision.

In the real world people work with no qualifications and are good but you
can't beat being educated and then tie that to experience and you will
always be in work.

All the best

Yes it is changing, but only the format and the delivery. The qualification will remain the same.

Thanks guys, i work on most commercial stuff both refrigeration and air conditioning, i started in refrigeration late on after getting a degree in college in IT, doing the level 2 was my first formal learning, found it very beneficial as not only did i learn a lot i also found out just how much i still needed to learn. Ive found doing mainly service/breakdown work that you get stuck in a rut , you can usually fix 80 to 90% of problems but then something comes along and you feel like you havent a clue. You become a parts changer, fans, TXVs, solenoids, MCBs , relays. The hard times that are in it, i think you need to differentiate yourself from the rest. Knowledge is power.
