Train4TradeSkills Bright Sparks: Daniel’s back with his latest blog about training to be an electrician

Daniel Miller is training to become an electrician and is part of the Train4TradeSkills Network of student bloggers.

Train4TradeSkills’ Tom Jinks spoke to Daniel this week about what’s going on with his electrical course:

Since my last blog I have been going over all my modules and revising the key points. I’ve been testing myself and setting exams to make sure I take it all in.

I’m working on TMA 9 at the moment and learning about what to expect when I get on the practical sessions.

Even if it’s only for an hour a day, I’m trying to go through all the books and regulations, so I can get better and make sure I take it all in.

I’ve also contacted a local electrician, to see if I can help out one day a week. I’ve had one lead from an electrician who says they will give me a call, so I’m just waiting to see what happens.

I’ve recently moved house and plan to do some improvements to the building and work as a sort-of handyman, which I would like to do as soon as I have got my Part P qualification. I did notice a cooker wired up to an electrical plug when I moved in, which I immediately realised was a potential hazard, so once qualified I plan to do some work around the building.

I would also like to mock up some practical boards when I get some spare time, as I am still balancing the course around working in a newsagents.
