Technique Learning welcomes trainee electricians of all abilities and we’re rather proud of our success rates in the industry. Many of our ex-students have gone on to achieve great careers in the electrical industry and we know how important their training was to them. Choosing a trainer provider is often the most difficult part, hopefully if you are interested in training to become an electrician you’ll like the look of what we have to offer. If you decide to train elsewhere though, take the following into account before you make that final decision.
Who runs the training programme?
Training should be hands-on by an expert in the field, your instructor should have vast knowledge and a large degree of expertise in the industry. How can they train you to industry standards if they don’t have experience in the industry? That’s like being taught how to drive by somebody who hasn’t even passed their test.
What are the facilities like?
Can you see the facilities that are on offer by the training provider before you book a course? Look for pictures on their website, or better still, arrange to go and see the learning centre in person before you book a course. Check out all the facilities they have to offer before you commit to one of their training programmes.
Do they have a good success rate?
Ask about their track record in the industry. Do pupils sail through exams having taken training at the centre or is there a high percentage of students that have to re-sit their finals. If so, why is this, could it be a failing in their training methods?
Do they promise to get you work?
Be wary of training centres that promise they will get you work once you have qualified. These tend to be false promises. We never make such bold claims at Technique Learning, what we can guarantee is to get you short term placements with our own electrical contractors, this is great experience and looks good on your CV.
Are their past pupils happy?
Feedback from past pupils is always good so look for case studies or testimonials on the website and find out what former students have to say. This gives you a general feel for the company, if they receive glowing recommendations it should put your mind at rest.
