City and Guilds Electrical Courses

So you want to change careers and become a professional electrician? Great! You'll love working as a tradesperson, and the UK's current skills shortage means that you should have no trouble finding plenty of work.

But you can't start working as an electrician without the proper training and qualifications. Electrical work is very dangerous if you don't know exactly what you're doing, so it's very important to learn all the relevant skills/theory and get properly certified before you begin your new career.

Here at Access Training, we offer a variety of City & Guilds-accredited electrical courses that are specifically designed for inexperienced electricians who want to train up, get qualified, and go professional. Even if you've never so much as changed a fuse before, our City & Guilds electrical courses will mould you into a skilled electrician in no time - we'll teach you everything you'll need to know and help you to earn the industry qualifications that domestic electricians are expected to hold.

What electrical qualifications will I earn with Access Training?
