Hi all, as promised in previous thread update of Access2trade training module (for the background on this check out thread “help needed”).
First thing to say is 10 out of 10, the training facility is brand new but caters for all required news, the only down side is poor lunch time menu, but what was on offer was OK.
There were 13 of us doing the course from a cross section of people including a lass from Scotland, and what a great bunch they all were, sure makes a difference to learning when you are all paying for it yourself.
First day and half was spent in the classroom doing theory then out to the workshop.
Purpose built wooden rooms which became our home for two and a half days.
There we installed a consumer unit, did the earth bonding and then installed and wired a light socket with single switch with a ELV spotlight connected via a junction box and a second light working from 2 switches, this might not sound like much but to 13 newbie’s it was a work of ART?
We then dead tested all circuits for earth loop impendence, Zs etc using a very impressive Megger tester, £800 worth we were told?
Then we connected up to the mains and switched on, or not? But we all pitched in helping each other to sort out all the little niggles.
Then back to the classroom and more studying, more tests and then a brief on are part 2 studying module and what we need to do before we return for the second weeks training.
All in all a cracking week with a great bunch of people and a great bunch of tutors who had all the time in the world to spend with us all, but especially are main tutor Wade a totally top class guy, hope I have him next time.
Have included a photo of my work booth with my lights on, sad but I was chuffed to bits to install it all and see it work.

Regards till next update.

Graham

How old is your son?How much will this course set you back.A lot of the colleges can do all these courses at a fraction of the price that these money making companies offer.If he is still under 19 he should get the courses paid for him:confused:

Re: Access2trade careers

He's just coming up on 21 and looking for an 'instant' qualification. He doesn't want to go down the college route because of the time it takes. ie up to 4 years. As for cost, he's looking at cool £5.4K which seems an awful lot of moolah to me. But then what do I know? I'm only his father.

Re: Access2trade careers

This is a full time course though...for the 20 days it runs for. It wouldn't be any good for people who can't get time off work to go.

Re: Access2trade careers

however long it takes :) I couldn't do evening courses, I need an at home thing. I don't get home from work till 7.30, so I'm already tired out from that. I need something I can do during my lunch hours at work & on my days off. I've sent off for some info from them though.
