Electrical training courses could aid economic recovery

People who have taken electrician training courses could play a big part in the UK's recovery from the recession after the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) suggested the construction industry is key to economy.

According to the building trade association, 44 per cent of its small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) believe their workload is set to decrease this year, with just 18 per cent thinking it will improve.

However, Richard Diment, director general of the FMB, commented that "investment in the construction sector offers the best hope of propelling this country back into recovery".

This is because "every £1 spent on construction output generates a total of £2.84 in total economic activity", he added.

With electricians, plumbers, bricklayers and countless other types of tradesperson key to building projects, it could be that they are able to help the sector - and consequently the British economy - off its knees.

The FMB was formed more than 60 years ago and aims to protect the interests small to SMEs in the industry.
