Study Electrotechnology at SIT

If you want to become an electrician, a pre-trade course at SIT helps to get your apprenticeship off to a great start. The programme teaches the electrical theory and practical skills required to gain an apprenticeship. Additional help in maths is available if required.

Students spend three days per week at their course and gain work experience with local businesses where possible.  Our workshop and classroom facilities are well set up for electrical training and we have recently invested in a range of new equipment.

Our tutors bring current industry experience and a wealth of knowledge to this popular trade which can include a career in residential, commercial, industrial, power generation and supply, and often leads to owning your own business.
