  • City & Guilds 2365 Level 2 Diploma in Electrical Installation - this would be the priority course for a trainee to attend
  • Manual handling
  • Working at heights
  • Boom and scissor lift courses

    and accessories

"ScreenSkills have supported me by providing funding towards professional qualifications. So far, I’ve obtained my IPAF, 18th Edition Wiring Regulations and Building regulations. In the New Year I’m booked on to the Part P Domestic Installer training which will help towards becoming a fully qualified electrician.”

Trainees must take part in both short course training and work-based learning for the funds to be claimed and production will book and pay for the courses as advised by the electrical team.
