The Home Study Electrical Course That Saw Former Bus Driver Find New Work

The Home Study Electrical Course That Saw Former Bus Driver Find New Work


home study electrical course City & Guilds Home Study Electrical Courses at Able Skills

Did you know you can train part time and still secure full time work? Many are under the illusion that this isn't possible, but this couldn't be any further from the truth as we've seen former student Phil Hickey secure work through a special Home Study Electrical Course that came with a City & Guilds Accreditation. If you're looking for flexible Electrician Training, then such student story might hold great value to you...

Phil initially enrolled himself onto The City & Guilds Level 2 & 3 Home Study Electrical Course as it gave him an incomparable insight into the world of electrics. Preparing him for real world work, Phil was able to learn the theoretical aspect of the course in his own time at home while working for Arriva at the same time. What's particularly great about the Home Study Electrical Course is that you guys have the power to choose which weeks you'd like to come in for practical sessions. If you're tied down with work this week, NO PROBLEM! Learn the practical aspect of the course with our industry expert instructors when it suits you as our Home Study Electrical Courses allows you to come in as and when you can.

What made him switch careers?


Phil worked as a bus driver but he felt like he needed a change of careers. Something that was more hands on and in a growing industry. After hearing good things in a conversation with a friend who completed the Level 2 Electrical Course here at Able Skills, he was told he could do the same on a Home Study Option. After searching online for a Home Study Electrical Course, he came across Able Skills and watched our Student Video Review of Joe Degorgio which can be found below:

Phil gave us a call to find out more information on the course we offered before coming down and being shown around the following weekend. Phil was shown around all of our electrical centres where he saw students working on their practical tasks and he was very impressed with the layout, organisation and facilities we offer.

It's all about continuous progression!

Having successfully completed The Level 2 & 3 Home Study Electrical Course, Phil just recently signed up for the new 18th Edition Course so he'll be able to legally carry out electrical installations in preparation for 2019. Having opened himself to the world of Electrics, Phil has also set his sights on the New Weekend 2391 Inspection and Testing Course due to the ever increasing demand for this area.

Phil even surprised us as he came in yesterday especially to thank us for providing him with all the Electrician Training he needed in order to leave his old job and embark on a new journey as an Electrician. He said he was glad to finally wave goodbye to shift work as he found a full time role in which he can plan a life around and finally enjoy a hands on role! Well done Phil!
