Electrician Courses and Training

Welcome to the Electrical Courses and Training Forums by Electricians Forums. For anybody who is already on a training course or is about to go on an electrician course – we have a private training forum where mentors help students out with their upskilling etc. We don’t provide any answers, trainees need to do some mock tests and discuss what was wrong on it etc

It really helps, we’ve had lots of people thank us over the years for this area of our forum.
