Favourable self-build conditions could lead to interest in electrical courses

Demand for electrical courses could go up if more people take advantage of favourable conditions for self-builds.

Tim Doherty, managing director of the National Self Build & Renovation Centre in Swindon, described how the price of property is traditionally the biggest obstacle to such projects, but the economic environment has helped to cut such costs.

He described how self-build initiatives have been popular over the past few years, which may have seen more amateurs attending electrical courses to complete their constructions.

"The fact that there is a recession might mean there are a few more people with a little more time on their hands," added Mr Doherty.

In his view, there is plenty of pent-up demand for housing and individuals may decide to opt for a self-build in the current economic climate.

This week, editor of Build It Anna-Marie Desouza suggested that training such as electrical courses can be a great investment, as people can learn how to carry out a variety of tasks around the house.
