Extended Advice covering Tiers
Your safety is of the upmost importance which is why our in centre courses operate with very strict safety protocols in place. We have invested in our infrastructure, procedures, staff and hygiene across all centres to ensure a safe working environment. Find out more below and follow the social distancing guidance.
Please note that due to reduced capacity in centre and higher than expected demand for this time of year we currently have limited availability. However we are scheduling more courses so please call us to discuss your needs should you be thinking of training with us. We are experiencing higher than normal call volumes and have set up a dedicated customer care team to help all our existing and new customers complete their training.
The COVID-19 pandemic is evolving daily and the safety of our staff and students is paramount. We continue to follow Government guidelines in the fight against Coronavirus and continue to:
• Provide hands free sanitising stations
• Encourage the use of face masks
• Supply PPE for our staff and students
• Social distancing enforced in corridors, classrooms and workshops
• Reduced class sizes
• Blended and remote learning options
Students currently in Tier 2, 3 or 4 Lockdown Areas
Some of our current or prospective students might be facing local lockdown restrictions and might be worried about their future electrical training with us.
We can confirm that our students can continue travelling to attend their electrical training and/or to sit their exams. The below has been summarised from the official guidelines outlined on the Gov.UK site:
- Students in Tier 2 zones “can continue to travel to venues or amenities that are open, for work or to access education”
- Students in Tier 3 zones “should try to avoid travelling outside the very-high alert level area you are in or entering a very-high alert level area, other than for things like work, education or youth services”
- Students in Tier 4 zones can still meet for "education or training - meaning education related to a formal curriculum or training that relates to work or obtaining work"
Investing in larger Workshops Areas
As a company we are continuing to invest in our training centres to provide larger yet safe and spacious workshops across our UK electrical centres.
We thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times. We are very proud of how our staff have responded and of how we have been able to continue delivery utilising virtual classroom. We will confirm new dates for your courses imminently by email or phone wherever possible.
Due to the size and quality of our facilities we are able to operate effective social distancing for the foreseeable future. This means class sizes will be reduced, PPE will be provided, exam sessions will be spread out and many more measures have been put in place to ensure a safe working environment. Find out more on this page.
We are still operating virtual classroom for our theory based classes. This is still the best way to deliver these classes in the current climate. This also greatly reduces footfall in centres and enables us to effectively social distance. You can some into centre for your exams and practical training and we are running lots of extra exams at present so you should be able to get a time easily.
