electrical courses

Ready to go and with electrical courses booked for the new qualification, we received last minute notification that the 'end' dates of the existing City & Guilds 2330 Electrical qualifications were to be extended until July 2012!Able Skills again adjusted to the news and decided to run both electrical qualifications giving students the choice of how they wanted to qualify for the electrical industry and as time went on, the C&G 2330 qualifications won the day as they proved to be, for adult learners anyway, the more convenient courses and qualifications to have to gain access to the electrical industry.More changes
