I chose to do this course so I wanted to know more about apprenticeships and the subject areas before I committed to an Electrical Apprenticeship. I found the course interesting and have covered related areas such as CCTV installation, Electrical Testing and Car Electrics. Next year I plan to progress to an Electrical Apprenticeship as I now know this is the area I am interested in.
