Feedback from our Home-Study Electrician courses!


Here at Able Skills, we are very proud of the quality of training courses that we teach. Not just Electrician courses but our entire range of training options. Home-Study courses are a great alternative option for those that cannot commit to a full-time course. These options for both electrics and plumbing result in the very same City & Guilds qualifications and are taught by the same expert instructors. The difference is that you will take on the initial theory portion at home, at your own pace.


We will provide you with our specially crafted 'Home-Study Pack' along with the relevant text books, test questions and everything you need to get started from the comfort of your own home. Once you feel confident that you've understood everything you have been presented it will be time to attend the centre to learn the practical hands-on skills and complete assessments. Today, let's take a look at some feedback received from our student on these courses...

Nobody could have expected the year that we've had. The pandemic has had an effect on all of our lives, if you are looking to make a change in your life and work towards a new career, we can help.

Starting a new path in a different industry can seem daunting, if you want some advice or have any questions about any of the courses that with offer Home-Study or otherwise don't hesitate to contact us.

Students thoughts:


"Enjoyed my time in Level 2 and Level 3 and have felt I have a good grasp of the fundamentals of the trade. The admin staff were all friendly and efficient. Thanks to Clive and Steve for being awesome instructors, they are just fantastic. A pay rise is needed I think! Thanks to everyone at the centre." - J Cam


"Steve was absolutely fabulous - Very knowledgeable and patient with myself and everyone on the course. There is absolutely no doubt you feel you are being trained by the very best. I'm so glad that I visited the centre in person when looking for a centre to train. Richard from the office staff took me around the centre, explained everything I needed to know and was very encouraging. Great place to learn!" - D Williams


"I found the course online, the centre looked great and the accommodation was a bonus. All the instructors that I has during my 3-weeks of practical training were brilliant and never refused to explain things in detail that I was struggling with or I didn't know something. They are excellent at giving you the confidence and ability you need to prepare for the industry. IT was great." - C Dumbrava


"I found the training centre online, they seemed to have solid credibility online with a lot of positive reviews and comments so I decided to train here. The course content was good and my instructor was great, good patience dealing with me and the rest of the group. The courses they offer are good value for money and I would definitely train here again." - R Field


"My time at Able Skills has really been worthwhile and the training centre has met all of my expectations and beyond. Steve explains things clearly and in an informed manner that is easy to understand. The course gas helped advance my knowledge in terms of electrical installations and generally was a great learning experience, thanks." - A Evans


"Excellent course, Steve kept the class engaged with his experience and interesting anecdotes about previous work out in the industry. What I personally appreciated was that he took the time to explain points that I had struggled to understand in the text books. The Home-Study materials that they sent to me were outstanding and much easier to read, understand and navigate compared to the regular City & Guilds books. Thanks Able Skills for providing such high quality training!" - N Baldwin


"I have studies here before for my City and Guilds Level 2 course which was excellent and the reason I have returned for this Home-Study course. I thoroughly enjoyed the course, Steve  the instructor is a credit to Able Skills and I hope that when I return for further training I can be taught by him. Really great stuff, reasonable prices and helpful staff!" - T Edhouse
