Thoughts from students taking on Home-Study Electrician courses!


Although we are continuing to teach Electrician courses and operate as usual during this second lockdown  - Home-Study courses here at Able Skills are becoming more and more popular with our students. It makes sense with all of us spending more time at home, thinking about new opportunities and new employment. Home-Study courses are exclusive to our training centre and allow candidates to learn the theory side of the trade from the comfort  of your own home. once you have studied the theory side and feel confident in this knowledge you will contact us and book time to learn the practical side in our electrical workshops and time to complete the relevant assessments. You too can kick-start a new career with our Home-Study Electrics Level 2 training option...

Thoughts from students taking on Home-Study Electrician courses!


How does the course work?


As the name suggests the Home-Study Level 2 course will start at home. We will send you our curated 'Home-Study Pack' that effectively will replace the instructor for the theory side of the qualification. Within the pack you will find all of the theory knowledge you need, presented in diagrams, definitions, formulas, calculations and much more. You will also find there are test questions in there for you to test yourself as you study. You can take as long as you would like, we typically recommend at least 6-weeks of studying. Once you feel confident that you've understood everything provided you'll want to contact us and book 4-weeks worth of practical training here at our centre for the practical side. These weeks can be chosen by you and should be separated as appose to 4-weeks straight. Let's take a look at what our most recent student had to say about this training option...




I found this training centre online and decided to take my course here because being able to study from home was useful for me and they have fair prices. It feels quick but not rushed. The electrical instructors are happy to answer any questions and are always on hand. I have progressed well on this course and feel ready for level 3 with my new confidence I'm looking forward to further training here at Able Skills." - D Dowd


"I was looking to train at a different centre but Able Skills offered a great option with this home-study course and the prices were much more reasonable. The course content and delivery was really good, well explained for week one coming in with absolutely no experience." - C Bentley


"I took the Level 2 qualification on the home-study route that you offer. The content and delivery of the course was very good, clear and digestable. I have progrssed really well so far and honestly much better than I expected. Tank you!" - D Newman


"Very down to earth and understanding instructors who taught the course at a good pace when it came to the practical side. I have progressed ok, I need more experience but the course was good." - L James


"I decided to train here as the Home-Study option was perfect for me personally, the learning packs were great. Being able to work around other commitments and the cost of the course was better than other similar training places. Overall the course content was good, good quality. I have progressed well and I'm ready to move on and learn more through the Level 3 course!" - R Canning


"I found the centre online and decided to train here as it seemed to be the most respected training centre. The standards were good as well as the qualifications available. The actual course itself was good the practical and theory learning was helpful and helped me to understand principles of what we were learning. I have progressed a lot, I feel like I have a good basic understanding now from how I was taught compared to starting out. Thanks." - C Schooling-Smith

"I heard about Able Skills through the company that I work for Vinci. Overall the course was great, the instructors were helpful at all times and considerate as well as being patient with students. I feel that I have learned more in these 4-weeks than I ever expected that I would. This is a great place to learn, I would recommend them for your electrical training courses" - G Chappenden
