Advanced Certificate – Craft Electrical: Phase 6 (Apprenticehip)Electrical apprenticeships are a great way to acquire the practical skills required by industry, whilst allowing you to earn while you learn.
Discipline: Electronic and Electrical Engineering
Location: Galway - Dublin Road
NFQ Level: 6
Apprenticeship programmes are demand driven, meaning the skills you acquire on an apprenticeship programme are relevant to the needs of the industry and labour market.
Many learners thrive using the hands-on, learn-by-doing approach of apprenticeship training. The class contact for the Electrical Phase 6 course is 35 hours per week. Approximately 50% of your time will be spent in a classroom environment, where you will build upon the electrical theory you learnt in Phase 4. The other 50% of your time will be spent in laboratories and workshops, where you will have the opportunity to re-enforce what you learn in the classroom environment by wiring electrical and electronics circuits, performing experiments, programming devices, and testing electrical installations.
