Electrical Apprenticeship – Advanced Apprenticeship at GEN II Engineering & Technology Training Ltd

Course description

Electricians are highly skilled crafts men and women, who work with electrical equipment and supplies on a wide range of engineering machinery and equipment. They also control and maintain instrumentation equipment that is used to accurately measure and regulate process variables such as flow rate of liquids or gasses, temperature or pressure. Their work ranges from installation of domestic electrical circuits for houses, to sophisticated installation and maintenance of highly complex machinery and equipment in major processing plants and factories. Electricians install, maintain and test electrical & instrumentation equipment, systems and appliances, and have to be able to diagnose and fault find problems with electrical equipment. For these reasons they need to be highly skilled with a logical and methodical approach to their work. Electricians need to have perfect colour vision and therefore must undertake a colour blindness test.
