The electrical courses that Trade Skills 4U offers at its Gatwick Training Centres have been awarded Centre of Excellence status by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
In order to make the grade, Trade Skills 4U centres, teaching methods, course documentation and staff were subject to rigorous scrutiny by the IET.
Tony Hicks, IET learning development manager, commented, “It is a pleasure to work with Trade Skills 4U. Their commitment to delivering a wide range of high quality electrical courses is very impressive. It is also clear that their commitment to quality provision extends across the whole range of electrical qualifications. This is hard to find amongst training providers and serves to differentiate them from the crowd, enabling them to offer the one stop shop for quality provision.”
The majority of City & Guilds electrical courses offered by Trade Skills 4U will be accredited by the IET and accepted into its Centre of Excellence. This will include a full range of inspection and testing courses from the City & Guilds 2392, right up to the more difficult City & Guilds 2395. It will also include the popular City & Guilds 2382-12 17th edition course and the City & Guilds 2393 Part P course, as well as a number of accredited Solar PV Courses.
Managing director, Carl Bennett, said, “Again, our hard work has paid off. We always strive to be the best at what we do, so to be the first electrical training company to be recognised in this way is a great reward for the way in which we work here at Trade Skills 4U. Our reputation is key to our success and is something we continually strive to build on.”
There will also be further recognition for the foundation courses offered by Trade Skills 4U. These recently became the only courses of this type to be accredited by City & Guilds in the UK.
The City & Guilds 4141-01 Electrical Installation Work within a Domestic Dwelling and the City & Guilds 4141-02 Fundamental Electrical Science Technology for Installation Work courses are an excellent way for those new to the industry to get a grasp of the basics and enables them to take their first steps into the industry. These two courses will also be accepted into the Centre of Excellence. Trade Skills 4U has added a dedicated IET Centre of Excellence section to its website, listing all of the courses covered.
Recently, Trade Skills 4U announced the opening of a new training facility in Warrington, as well as plans for a national network of training centres.
