Resettlement Electrical Training for Armed Forces Leavers

It's a big decision to leave the armed forces. More than just a job, enlisting in the armed forces is a way of life, and this can make the transition back into civilian life understandably daunting. However, there are plenty of options available to you out there, so don't worry. If you're reading this article then you're already taking the right steps towards a new career and carefully researching your options before you decide what you would like your next career move to be. Upon leaving the armed forces, one popular route for people to take is trades training. Electrical courses in particular can provide a lucrative salary and job security for years to come.

In recent years the number of electrical course providers has increased drastically. This is of course a good thing, as the increase in competition works to bring down the cost of electrical training courses across the board. It also means that it is highly likely there will be an electrical training course provider close to your home, which ensures you do not have to travel for hours every day to access the accredited training you are looking for.

The downside of the emergence of so many electrical training centres is that it makes it more difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff, to find the very best source of electrical training for your budget. The last thing you want to do is undergo a lengthy and expensive electrical training course, only to complete the course and earn a qualification which is not extensively recognised by the industry. Whether you want to become a fully qualified electrical technician and set up shop on your own or work for one of the UK's leading commercial or residential contractors, you need to ensure your electrical training course provider is accredited by industry bodies such as City & Guilds, EAL, BAL, NIC EIC, and Gas Safe.

What else should you look for in an electrical course provider? Well class size is important. Smaller class sizes usually mean more individual attention from tutors, which can help massively when trying to learn complicated skills in a short space of time. Anything around five individuals to each tutor seems to be about right. You can then judge the standard of training these tutors provide by taking a look at the centre's electrical course pass rates. These can really help you to identify which centres provide the highest standard of electrical courses. Some have pass marks in excess of 95 per cent, whilst others are not quite so good.
