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.

The construction industry is set to experience a larger-than-expected period of growth, according to the latest Construction Skills Network report. As a result, tradespeople are likely to experience an unprecedented increase in demand over the next five years.

By using forecasted trends in the construction economy, the report has calculated the necessary expected changes within the industry year on year. The report highlights the fact that the industry is due to face “substantial recruitment and training challenges”, and that if the sector aims to meet the projected growth over the next five years, then over a quarter of a million additional workers will be required to fill the demand.

A shortage in skilled tradespeople has been an obstacle which has loomed over the construction sector for the past decade and more. In recent years, industry leaders have been asking themselves one important question: how do we encourage more people to join our thriving and essential industry?
