No matter what your goal is, we have a range of electrician courses for adult learners to help you get there.

Am I too old to retrain as an electrician? 

You're never too old to learn a new trade or retrain as an electrician. There is no time limit on learning - that's why we do what we do! Our comprehensive electrician courses for adult learners are open to all ages and backgrounds. You don't need any experience either - our skilled trainers have that all in hand and are more than happy to spend 1-to-1 time with students.

We'll help you to learn the electrical trade, get qualified and start your new career as an electrician - and every goal in between!

The autonomy that comes from learning a trade can be relieving. Gaining electrical qualifications not only opens up career opportunities with established companies, but it also creates a clear route to self-employment. Being your own boss is always an option with Access Training. 

By 2023, the UK will need between 7,500-10,000 electricians. No matter your age, you could be one of them by enrolling onto our electrician courses for adult learners.

 

How long does it take to become a qualified electrician? 

Electrician apprenticeships generally take three years to complete. After completion, it is up to the student whether they decide to continue onto higher education courses or other electrical training.

At Access Training, we're a bit different - we speed the process up without sacrificing quality education.

Students at Access Training can achieve the very highest level in the electrical trade and earn industry-recognised qualifications in a matter of weeks. These include highly-recognised PAT Testing courses and 18th Edition qualifications!

 

What makes Access Training better than other electrical training centres? 

We understand that adult learning can seem daunting at first. That's why we provide fast-track training from trusted UK training course providers. We never put our students through more than they need to - with us, there's no need to spend three years doing an apprenticeship. We'll get you exactly where you need to be.

Our flexible electrician courses for adult learners enable you to learn your trade and start work, or self-employment, within a far shorter timeframe than traditional routes.

Not only that, but our unique course packages include unlimited online learning, intensive practical training, and ongoing career support for up to 3 years after enrolment.

career opions for carpenters - carpentry career options and career paths

Carpentry and joinery are one of the oldest professions within the trade industry, and is revered and respected like no other. Carpenters are always in great demand no matter what type of work they are undertaking, and carpentry encompasses a wide range of skills, environments, and practices. 

However, information regarding what career options are available to carpenters is not always that easy to find. Carpentry is a varied, demanding, and skills-dependent vocation. Carpentry is by no means restricted to making furniture and measuring wood, although these are of course fundamental to the practice. 

The aim of this article is to communicate the rich and varied career opportunities available to those with carpentry qualifications, so that you can make sure you are getting the most out of your career and are exploring all avenues to make your professional life as fulfilling and lucrative as it can be.
