Why is this course for me?
If you aspire to become a qualified, accredited electrician, the Level 3 award is a necessity if you are not doing an apprenticeship.
The course is thorough and varied, delivered to suit a range of learning styles; assessment is carried out through a mixture of online and written exams, as well as practical and written assessments. Content is dynamic and stimulating, spanning everything from the basics of testing and inspection, fault finding and rectification, environmental technologies, electrical principles and electrical systems design. Whatever your area of interest, were sure to cover it.
The programme is well suited to those with competing commitments, as it runs one day per week for one term (summer term after level 2) and one academic year. All students are encouraged (and supported) to deepen their experience within the industry during their time away from the College, both building their connections and expanding their understanding of the subject.
How will my learning be enhanced?
We believe that not all learning can come from a book; in fact, our courses are driven by hands on education and experiences.
You will be shown how to use a range of, industry standard multi-function testing equipment before putting the equipment into action yourself. Plus, youll benefit from frequent demonstrations and simulations of electric principles to add another layer to your understanding.
