Electrical Installations Courses

Our Electrical Installations courses are delivered by tutors with extensive knowledge of the construction industry and their professional expertise is valued by our students.

There are excellent facilities, with training areas designed to simulate the working environment. Further Education qualifications include nationally recognised BTEC diplomas.

As well as Further education Electrical Installations courses, Apprenticeships are also available, allowing students to earn while they learn, as well as gaining first-hand experience in a construction environment and giving you the relevant training and education required to become a successful electrical engineer. Career pathways may include employment as a registered Installation Technician.

I like the practical side of the course and being able to see what real-life jobs may be like. I also enjoy learning the science behind the technology and electrical industry.Lewis Tulley - Electrical Installations Level 2
