Name: James Lovett
Courses Studied: C&G2365 Level 2/3, Bronze Package
We caught up with one of our students James Lovett following his training with us to ask how he got on and to find out what his plans are for the future.
Why did you decide to train with us?
After leaving the army I decided to train with Trade Skills 4U as I was able use my ELCAS credits to put towards my resettlement training, also I had heard good things about Trade Skills 4U.
Why did you decide to take the C&G 2365 course and how will this help you?
I decided to take the 2365 course to get a step closer to becoming a fully qualified electrician. I needed to do this in a quicker time period due to having a mortgage etc. I currently work full-time at Gatwick Airport as a Maintenance Electrician and I hope that his course will open more doors for my career.
Tell us about why you chose to become an electrician?
My brother is an electrician and I had a taste of what it was like, so I decided to take my first steps and booked the Bronze Domestic Installer course with Trade Skills 4U. This gave me a good foot in the door to the electrical industry where I worked for a year and a half as a domestic electrician. I then managed to get a job with TA Boxall & Co Ltd as a Maintenance Electrician.
How long have you been working in the electrical industry?
I have been in the industry now for just over 3 years.
What difference has training made to you?
The training has made a massive difference. Now I can go on to complete my NVQ and AM2 Assessment and become a fully qualified confident electrician with the company I work for.
How would you describe the facilities and training at Trade Skills 4U?
The facilities are very good at Trade Skills 4U, with rest areas, free tea and coffee etc. and great support from the tutors.
Please tell us about your training with Trade Skills 4U. What were your best bits, difficult bits, interesting bits?
My best bits were definitely the workshop weeks, putting what you learn on paper into practice and testing it to prove it all works. The difficult bits for me were the maths but with great tutors who explain things really well everything fell into place. The whole course is interesting as you are learning constantly and as you get through each week more and more bits all fall into place.
We would like to thank James for sharing his training experience with us and wish him the very best of luck for the future.
