Courses are split into 3 key areas; Practical (within a training centre), Theory (within a class-room environment) & Home- Study.

Course Information

Minimum age requirement is 18 years of age

This course is designed to take you from a complete beginner to a fully qualified electrician, by providing you with a thorough grounding in electrics and electrical principles. It covers a number of City & Guilds qualifications; Part P Defined scope, Part P Full scope and 18th Edition of IET Wiring Regulation. With this professional qualification you will gain a Level 3 diploma.

The main objective of this training course is to give you the “hands-on” knowledge and practical skills for your chosen trade, regardless of your current level of ability. This is a uniquely structured blended learning program, delivered by a combination of theory and practical skills acquisition.

The practical training is designed to complement the course – not only bringing into context the theory you have learnt at home, but also giving you the knowledge, skills and experience you need to work competently and safely in your chosen trade.

You can work for an electrical company in the UK or be self-employed and have your own company.

It requires the physical presence of both teacher and student, with some elements of student control over time, place, path, or pace. While students still attend "brick-and-mortar" schools with a teacher present, face-to-face classroom practices are combined with computer-mediated activities regarding content and delivery.
