Electrician Courses at Able Skills

Today we caught up with Adam Humphries who is one of the latest students to undergo Electrician Training on The City & Guilds Level 2 Electrical Course. Adam is on the first Level 2 of the year with several other students who will be with us for 7 weeks in total. Being a massively popular course here at Able Skills, students are often put on a waiting list as we're booked months ahead.

Adam was lucky enough to go for the career he wanted by kick starting the new year off with a fresh start. So let's find out a bit more about what he was doing prior to starting his journey and why he chose Able Skills Electrician Courses.

What were you doing before?

I've been working as a postman for the past 10 years and I decided to go for something that can earn me more money as well as keeping me engaged. The reason I became a Postman in the first place was because it would keep me active as you'd imagine. I did enjoy it for the first few years as it was a stable job and let me base a good life around work. I liked my routine and it was nice to see people you would see yesterday and say a quick hello. It was up until just a couple years ago that I felt I could do more with my time and found myself guilty of getting too comfortable within a role.

So why Electrician Courses?

But it's time for a change now. I need another challenge and I've literally seen the amount of money to be made as I deliver post to several electricians and it's clear how well they're doing. In a conversation with one of them, he told me he'd be happy to give me a hand and throw some work my way when I need experience! I believe a trade is something that will be in demand forever and not only that, but I would love to be able to work on my own house and get into the property game.

How's the Course going so far?

Able Skills Electrician Courses are City & Guilds Accredited

So far so good! It's only my second week and I've learnt a lot. Both the theory and practical parts are massively interesting and I'm annoyed at myself for not doing it sooner!I've got a great instructor and everyone is willing to help each other which is always a good sign.

It's great to see people going for what they want to do, especially changing careers as it's seen as such a huge risk. The real risk here is only doing something you don't want to do for the rest of your life, compared to doing something you love and gives you a good living!
