Electrical Power Engineering - Wind Turbine (City and Guilds)

Dumfries and Galloway College


Dumfries Campus


The course is designed to teach you the key technologies, together with the associated underpinning knowledge relating to how Wind Turbines function, generate electricity and connect to the grid. The program also develops your practical engineering skills making you potentially work ready. The course also acts as the first year of a modern apprenticeship should you wish to pursue that route.

Incorporated into the course are Performing Engineering Operations (PEO 2) qualifications which combined with the City and Guilds NC element will give two of the three elements required for a Modern Apprenticeship.

Entry Requirements

5 subjects at National 5 including Maths, and preferably Physics or successful completion of NC Electrical Engineering (Level 5 or 6) programme. You must have a good background in maths and physics. You will attend an interview and advice session.

Progression Routes
