Enhanced Approved Electrician Training

What is special about this course?

This Enhanced Training programme has been reviewed by SECTT and the apprenticeship has been restructured to include the components of this programme.

As such there are a number of trainees who do not have this component who now require this to progress to the Approved Electrician.  SECTT have given UHI Perth permission to develop and run the programme via the VLE.

Cost - £395
