English translation:Class II approval
Explanation:
This might not be the exact way to translate it, but I am fairly sure that H2C means "habilitation deuxième classe".

I see what you mean: particularly from page 4, you can build up quite a detailed description of the person's qualifications.

Thank you -the reference document is spot on. I suspect the best translation would be to leave the h2c as it is, with something like [French electricians' qualification] after it.

Notes to answerer
Asker: The reference is great (thank you), but would suggest a long-winded explanation in square brackets rather than simply Class II approval (see pgs 4 and 24)
