Put a spark into your career; A BRILLIANT CAREER.

RECENT studies have indicated that, whilst some sectors have seen a decline in job numbers, others have actually seen a rise. One of those areas is the electrical industry, an area which has had a skills shortage for a number of years, long before the credit crunch. So could adding some electrical skills provide you with much-needed financial stability? You may worry that electrical training or a career change could be a risk not worth taking. But if you consider the fact that electrical skills are in short supply nationwide, a career change into the electrical trade or adding some electrical skills to your current trade would seem tempting.

Aside from being in short supply, there simply aren't enough people undergoing electrical training in order to replace those retiring from industry. The gap between vacancies and skilled trades people is actually growing, making electrical training a smart route to follow.

At any given time, someone will require electrical work to be carried out, be it a plumber installing a new boiler, a builder renovating a property, an electrician wiring a property, or construction company offering a large contract to work on a number of developments.

Electrical qualifications can be a wise move, especially if you combine it with any existing skills you have, such as other trades or a business brain to set up your own business. Electrical skills are now becoming a fundamental aspect of other trades: current regulations state that anyone wishing to certify their own domestic electrical work must be qualified in PART P. So, for example, if you're a plumber and wish to carry out even small electrical projects as part of your work, you must have received electrical training in this area. Luckily, PASS Training and Development can offer you PART P training.

Aside from delivering electrical courses to those looking to develop new skills, PASS Training can deliver courses on behalf of businesses looking to develop their employees' skills. If your company requires electrical knowledge, this is an excellent way of keeping employee numbers down whilst creating multi-skilled employees: a valuable commodity in today's job market. If you would like to build on your electrical skills to increase the demand for your electrical services, or even if you would like to boost staff morale as a business owner, PASS can guide you through all of the relevant electrical courses you need, to get where you're going.
