What makes Able Skills the best place to get quality electrical training?


Here at Able Skills, we take pride in our ability to produce top-quality electricians via our facilities, instructors and City & Guilds approved courses. Electrical studies are probably the most popular trade that we teach and that is down to our extensive range of electrical courses - from getting students up to date with our 18th Edition courses to tackling more advanced courses such our Level 3 Award in Inspection and Testing!

Students are always working hard in our electrical centre.


One of the reasons for us being so popular in terms of electrical courses is the instructors that teach them. Our instructors are all experts in the field and have years of experience working out in the industry in numerous roles. If you decide to study with us, take advantage of their vast knowledge and wisdom about the trade - every possible scenario you have thought of, they have most likely experienced and have some insight into.

We try to make the route towards professional employment as simple as possible that is why we tend to put our electrical courses into packages, for example, our Gold Card Approved Electrician package - which includes all of the necessary courses and assignments. This is the biggest package of Electrical training that we have available at Able Skills and provides all of the training and assessment that anyone looking to achieve JIB Gold Card status will require. Acquiring an ECS is a necessity when looking to work for companies or on-sites.


Alternative training:


Another reason we are the perfect place to gain electrician training is that we offer alternative training methods. We understand that not everybody has the time to be at our training centre for 5-days a week - so we have devices a couple of alternative training methods that you will struggle to find anywhere else...


Weekend training:


Weekend training is a great alternative for those who cannot find time during the week, you will achieve the same level of City & Guilds qualification that our full-time candidates do, the only difference is the length of time that it will take you to complete the course. For example, if you are interested in taking the City & Guilds Level 2 Electrical Course, that would be a series of 14-weekends! We also are flexible when it comes to payments - A £500 deposit will secure a booking and the balance can be paid in 9 instalments of £299.44 – payable on the first weekend of each block of training.




Yes...that's right we offer a home-study option for those of you who are really strapped for time. To start your electrical home study course we will send you a Level 2 'home study pack' which will contain all of the theory knowledge units that you are required to achieve in order to gain the qualification. Also contained within the pack are self-assessment papers allowing you as the candidate to monitor your progress along the way. In addition to the pack, we will also provide you with the associated City & Guilds reference book as well as access to 'Smartscreen' – a City and Guilds online learning/assessment resource.

We recommend that you take around 6-weeks to fully absorb the information via these platforms, once you feel confident in this new-found knowledge you will need to book in 4-weeks of practical learning and assessments!
