I chose to train for electrician because I was aiming for different career path. It’s good to be in a training so far I’d say. The tutors know about electricity all there is to know and it’s just being quite fun and interesting and evolving. In the center you’ve got all you need: the tools, you’ve got the equipment and again the lecturers have been showing you what to do and it’s great. I’m hoping to get into the industry at some point, I think I get the skills I need to do it, it’s just getting a confidence to go up there and do it.
My name is John Knox, I’m an electrical assessor for ERR limited. I’ve been doing this for probably 12 years, so I do have a bit of experience in it. I’m an electrician by trade, I have been doing electrical work since I’ve been 18 years old in various commercial, industrial and domestic installs.
The one thing we do get in this industry is courses which say that you can complete a course within a given time scale anywhere between 6 to maybe 10 or 12 weeks. These courses can be done but they would be normally for guys that may be working in within the industry who can then achieve the standard of what you need to have to be able to go out there in the real world.
If you’re coming off an office job, driving a lorry anything or driving a bus, you will have to put in that extra mile shall we say of looking for jobs, trying to get experience on site, you’ll have a lot of home study to do. Not everything can be done just straight in the center and you will be guaranteed to get through these things will take time, they won’t be achievable sometimes within these given weeks.
We do provide at ERR a lot of stuff for studying, there’s lots of videos, there’s lots of virtual reality stuff, which is absolutely brilliant to go in and actually study for. Everything is going to be down to your own time scale as well because everyone has a home life, but the sooner you do get into the center the sooner you can get start working and you start aiming towards a qualification.
Because there’s going to be more and more and more of these electrical cars coming out and electrical vehicles, we need more and more electricians doing that particular area. It’s going to open so many more doors the labour demand on electricians.
At the moment they reckon in every city there’s at least five to ten electricians short and in every village two electricians. There’s not one electrician, one electrician’s mate, one electrician’s labor that I know which is out of work; they’re all snowed under and busy. The pay scale is only going to go up; if you’re going industrial commercial I mean you can charge anywhere between 35 to 40 maybe 50 pound an hour.
I’m Shane Moore and I’m doing the level two and level three electrical course. I’m currently training with ERR this week on week nine to do my 188.8.131.52.5.2 electrical certificate. This is my final week before I start my am2 and then I’ll be qualified. Prior to starting the course I was employed as an area manager for a hospice charity, so looking after retail shops and Warehouse Logistics that kind of thing and then prior to that I’d predominantly been in retail management jobs for commercial retailers.
I always had an interest in the electrical side of construction. In previous houses that I bought I’d kind of done bits and pieces with electrical. Whereas I’ve never really sort of done any plumbing or anything like that, it didn’t really appeal to me, so that was a kind of for electrical would be the better choice for me to do.
Once I finished I aim to gain a bit more experience and then the future plan is to start my own company and then further down the line from that perhaps look at taking on apprentices who are either at college or doing these kind of courses to basically build a business.
I thought taking this course was the best route for me purely because it was it is fairly easy to sign up to, you know, you come, a guy comes around and sort of assesses your ability and why you want to do it and things like that and you sign up. Obviously a lot of it is study from home so it’s at your own pace and at the time I was obviously working as well so it kind of just worked for my situation at the time when I first joined up I found that the support was fine.
The facilities are great, the support, the guys John and Ian who are very knowledgeable and will always help you.
Thanks to the efforts of yourself, Mark and Shaun, I though you may like to know and pass onto current and future students that, the hard work and study does pay off. I have recently taken up employment with a Durham based social housing company to carry out EICR inspections. I am currently doing the rounds of over 19, 000 properties in a team of 8 people in EICR.
I have absolutely no doubt that this would not be happening if it were not for ERR. With gaining 2391-52 I have been given the opportunity to finish AM2 and NVQ level 3 with a reputable company as a Intern.
Please pass on to new students that your goals can be achieved.
May I wish you all a prosperous future, and good health.
