Electrical Installation? Trade Skills 4U Wrote the Book on That!

Posted by Christos Panayiotou on 19th November 2013

Two instructors from Trade Skills 4U have recently been published in the brand new City & Guilds text books, “Level 2 Diploma in Electrical Installations 2365” and “Level 3 Diploma in Electrical Installations (Buildings and Structures) 2365“. It’s no surprise that they have been involved since Trade Skills 4U are the leading centre in the UK that deliver the City & Guilds 2365 course. They have been teaching the qualification for over a year now since it was introduced in September 2012 and as such have a team of highly experienced tutors who know the subject inside out. Two members of this team Andy Hay-Ellis and James Deans have both contributed to the brand new books covering the Level 2 & 3 Diplomas. Other writers who contributed to the books include Paul Harris, Trevor Pickard, Howard Carey, Paul Cook and Peter Tanner, all well respected in the industry. The books have now been published and are available to buy on Amazon.

James and Andy have both been teaching at Trade Skills 4U for many years and are two of their most experienced tutors. Both work full time within the centre, Andy as the Director of Education and James as a senior tutor.  Both have put in a lot of extra hours over the past year to bring this book to fruition.

Andy Hay-Ellis said “I am very pleased to finally see these books published. It makes all the hard work worthwhile. These two books will form a comprehensive resource for all learners undertaking these new qualifications.”

James Deans said “I still teach the 2365 every day and am one of the first instructors in the UK to deliver this course. I believe the books will make an excellent companion for my classes and hope to see students arriving with them under their arm in the near future.”

Trade Skills 4U continue to strive to deliver outstanding teaching in the electrical and renewable energy fields. They recently had a number of their courses, including the City and Guilds 2365 Electrical Installation Diploma, accepted into the IET Centre of Excellence and were the first electrical training company in the UK to gain this accolade.

The fact that two of their staff are involved in the authorship of a course book approved by both the IET and City and Guilds, demonstrates that they are much more than just a training company. Trade Skills 4U continue to be thought leaders in this industry led by the outstanding knowledge of their team of specialist electrical trainers.

The level 2 and 3 Electrical Installation Diplomas are recognised throughout the industry as the key qualifications to enable electrical installers to get qualified and gain work. Students will often self-fund their course in order to get a foot on the ladder to becoming fully qualified as an electrician. Once completed, most students will gain work in industry and complete an NVQ which is essentially a portfolio of work that is assessed on site.

The qualification has grown in popularity over the past year especially since students can now take out a 24+ Advanced Learning Loan to cover the cost of the Level 3 part of the course.

If you are looking to take electrical training you can speak with specialist course advisors who will guide you through the different options available to you.
