DIY research may prompt people to take electrical courses

A new study suggests common DIY skills are in danger of being lost in modern society - a trend that could inspire individuals to take electrical courses and other home improvement training.

Sue Beeson, a spokeswoman for AA Home Rescue, claimed the pattern has come about because people automatically choose to hire a tradesman when something goes wrong in their home, rather than try to fix it themselves.

In her opinion, part of the problem is that everyone's lives are so different compared to 30 or 40 years ago, when more adults may have had an understanding of some of the principles taught on electrical courses and other DIY training qualifications.

"Our lives are so crowded because we are being bombarded with information from umpteen channels and the way people spend their leisure time is very different," added Ms Beeson.

Her comments were made in response to the publication of a study by AA Home Rescue predicting DIY skills could be extinct by 2048.
