Why take the Electrician Taster Sessions?

If you want to train as an electrician or a domestic installer but are not sure if electrics is the right move for you why not dip your toe in the water with one of our taster sessions? We run these on a monthly basis in each of our main centres. 

These taster sessions are a fantastic chance to test your aptitude for electrical installation as well visit the centre and experience the service we offer to our customers. They have proven to be extremely popular and as such spaces are limited and offered on a first come first served basis. 

We charge a nominal fee which is discounted from any future bookings you may make with us. We have had to introduce this due to high numbers of people not turning up for the sessions when they were completely free of charge.

Please note that taster sessions will be available to book online from Monday 21st September.
