Making a career change isn’t always the easiest of tasks, however, it can be life changing and make people much happier. Lots of people take the chance to change and join the electrical industry at Able Skills. Every electrical student we have at Able Skills works extremely hard to train and achieve the qualifications to begin a new career.

Glenn is one electrical student that has had a fantastic journey at Able Skills and is very excited to start his new career.

After coming up to nearly 20 years of working as an Accountant in the City of London, Glenn decided he was fed up and wanted a different career path. He changed completely and looked to the electrical industry.

He researched into other centres across the UK, however, Glenn decided to complete all his electrical courses here at Able Skills due to the courses on offer and the reviews he had seen from past students. Glenn booked the full Gold Card Electricians Package as he looked to become fully qualified Electrician and have no limits to what work he can carry out.

Glenn wanted to learn a proper skilled trade and he chose to become an Electrician for exactly this reason. When Glenn started his Level 2 Electrical course he was quite nervous but it wasn’t long before he was settled and starting doing very well on the course. He thanks Keith for this, “Keith was fantastic and makes you feel comfortable from day one and will always make the extra effort to help you.”

Whilst completing one of his exams he failed but was very happy to be able to re-sit it for free and Keith helped him revise for areas he was unsure on. Glenn successfully completed his level 2 course and was feeling very confident ahead of his next electrical courses.

He then went on to complete his 17th Edition course and the PAT Testing course, where he passed both exams with great scores. From then he went from strength to strength and excelled in his course.

Glenn soon was finishing his seven-week Level 3 Electrical course and was well on his way towards his new career. After completing and passing his Inspection & Testing course, Glenn registered onto the NVQ and is now out working on a site in London and our NVQ assessor Clive, is assessing him. He will then come back and complete his AM2 Assessment with us.

This is what Glenn has had to say about his time with us at Able Skills:

“I can’t thank Able Skills enough for their time and help throughout my training. From all the office staff to my tutor, Keith and assessor, Clive. They have truly given me a great training experience and made my career change as smooth as possible and I owe them a lot. It makes a pleasant change to sitting at a desk all day!”

Glenn was a fantastic electrical student and we would like to wish him the best of luck for the future in his new career as an Electrician!
