Cliff talks about his upcoming practical training in latest blog

Well after a week of struggling with electrical scenarios I have finally completed all the scenario’s the fifth one being particularly hard since it has a glitch which means you have to give it incorrect information to complete it, Thanks Nick (@FlyingSparkie) for that info – It saved my sanity.

So along with module 27 Showers which I completed last Friday, I am well on track even exceeding my own expectations of where I would be in my plumbing course.


I am at present working on module 28 Environmental Awareness which I am giving particular attention as I have my BPEC Energy Efficiency exam next week, when I attend Featherstone training centre for weeks 3 & 4 which i am very excited about, as I can’t wait to get my hands dirty again.

I will be writing a diary for the practical training weeks of which you can expect the first instalment around the 3rd of July, my last diary for weeks 1 & 2 were very well received and I had lots of positive feedback so I look forward to see how the next set will be received.


The majority of this week will be taken up with revision on domestic hot and cold water system, as I also have assessments on these subjects next week. I am feeling quietly confident about my practical training weeks, unlike my first 2 weeks when I was extremely nervous. This time I go knowing the staff that I will be working with and the experience from last time on how well the students work together to achieve the best results possible from the time spent at the centre. So I am going to leave you with a quote from my favourite author:


To realize one’s own destiny is a person’s only real obligation. All things are One. “and, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”. Paulo Coelho.

We’ll have another diary from Cliff on Week 3 of his practical training next week. In the meantime, you can read Cliff’s diaries about his practical training, which is a great read if you want to know what the practical training part of the Train4TradeSkills course is like.
