Highway Electrical Apprenticeships: A Win Win.

The Highway Electrical Apprenticeship programme is designed by Employers from within the sector and developed in conjunction with the Highway Electrical Association and Lantra Awards – it is a great opportunity for students and companies alike, to have access to programmes providing students with the hands-on training and experience they need, to succeed in the field of highway electrical maintenance and construction, while providing companies with highly trained and motivated employees.

Students learn in controlled environments before going out on site.

For students, Highway Electrical Apprenticeships offer the chance to gain valuable, on-the-job experience while learning the skills needed to become a successful highway electrical professional at Level 2 (Installation Operative) or Level 3 (Highway Electrician). Throughout the program, apprentices will work alongside their own experienced company mentors, gaining knowledge and practical skills in areas such as electrical installation, maintenance, column installation, inspection & testing and fault location & repair. At our state-of-the-art training centre, they will also receive formal training and education, including classroom instruction and online courses, which will help them gain a deeper understanding of the concepts and theories behind the work they are doing.

In addition to the hands-on experience and formal training, Highway Electrical Apprenticeships also provide students with a sense of accomplishment and purpose. They have the opportunity to contribute to live projects, solving real-world problems, and making a tangible difference in the communities where they work.

Students are accessed by industry experts.

For companies, Highway Electrical Apprenticeships, delivered by Electrical Testing Ltd are a cost-effective way to recruit, train, and retain top talent.
