If you hate the thought of being stuck in an office all day and are looking for a career that’s pretty much recession proof then becoming an electrician might just be the right career move for you. With an average starting salary of around £18000 rising to an average of £25000, learning to be an electrician is something that could really pay off.
When you train to be an electrician, typical electrical training courses will equip you with the knowledge and skills that you’ll need to forge a successful, solid career. You’ll learn how to plan the layout of wiring, equipment and fittings, how to install wiring, fittings and sockets, and fit fuse boxes and circuit breakers. You’ll also learn how to test wiring and electrical equipment safely and fix any faults that are found.
When looking for an electrical training course it’s important to make sure you enrol on one that is recognised in the workplace. The City and Guilds courses that we offer through Technique Learning Solutions are designed to equip you with everything you need to know for a long term successful career as an electrician.
One of the most important aspects that any electrical training course should cover is the 17th Edition Wiring Regulations. The British Standard BS7671 was brought into play in 2008 and amended in 2011 and sets the standard for all installations designed after July 1st 2008. The aim of BS7671 is to improve the level of protection against electrical shock in the UK and make installations safer for all involved.
