Students wanting to take the City & Guilds 2357 electrical courses at weekends should anticipate learning for around two years as they will need to allow for around 50 inconsecutive weekends in total to complete the course.

Undertaking training on a two weekend on and two weekend off basis allows students the opportunity for intensive learning while also having two weekends spare each month for free time.

Trainees should not expect to be able to learn from home because electrical courses require learners to attend lessons in person in order to be able to integrate theoretical sessions with practical demonstrations.

Reputable training providers will deliver lessons in a dedicated electrical centre and the learning will include a mixture of theory based classroom tuition alongside workshop practical tasks.

Accredited electrical qualifications can be extremely expensive so a student must be comfortable with a training centre before they commit to enrolling on a course for a considerable length of time.

The best way to examine the credentials of a centre is to visit their facilities in person as this will give you the opportunity to speak with current staff and students as well as taking a look at the equipment used for training purposes.
