All the units are relevant to the work required of a first year apprentice and on successful completion, you’ll have the opportunity to sit the SECTT entrance exam.
It’s a mixture of practical hand skills and theory, and you’ll work in an environment which simulates a real life workplace.
You will: learn about electrical principles and basic electrical concepts; look at the basic electrical circuit elements; learn about cable ratings and the dangers of overcurrent in a circuit; look at earthing; develop skills in installing PVC sheathed wiring systems; learn about Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs); develop skills in using electrical test equipment; study maths in an engineering context.
4 subjects at National 5 including Maths or Physics, or SVQ Performing Engineering Operations - Electrical at SCQF Level 5, or other relevant national qualifications at SCQF Level 5. Entry subject to interview.
