Electrical courses demand could increase with retrofitting popularity

An industry expert has suggested the new jobs that are set to come on to the construction market are likely to be in retrofitting applications, which could lead to a rise in demand for electrical courses for engineers.

Director of external affairs at the Federation of Master Builders Brian Berry explained that there may be fewer local authority contracts due to the expected government cuts.

However, he suggested there could be plenty of interest in installing retrofitted equipment to make homes more energy efficient, which may mean workers could benefit from attending electrical courses before taking on projects involving such new technology.

"In terms of the retrofitting market and energy efficiency, that is where the job creation will be in the next few years," added Mr Berry.

His comments follow the publication of the latest Markit/CIPS purchasing managers' index, which indicated that construction activity grew for a third month in a row in May.
