At the end of your apprenticeship you will be able to install, test and inspect any aspect of electrical work. Furthermore, you will be able to gain additional qualifications such as EV charging, solar panel installation and battery storage installation. The electrical contracting industry is part of the construction industry and therefore electricians are generally responsible for the installation, maintenance, and repair of electrical services, both inside and outside buildings and structures such as houses, hospitals, schools, factories and shops etc. However, all electricians will have a broad range of similar technical knowledge and practical skills to enable them to carry out their work safely and correctly.

  • Write reports.

As you can see, the job of the electrician is varied and interesting and can offer a challenging career. Consequently, the training programme that you will be following as a JTL apprentice has been designed to help you by meeting and delivering training to these standards and expectations.
