The Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA) has been awarded prestigious City & Guilds centre status. The education and training department underwent rigorous training to be approved as an official provider of City & Guilds’ widely recognised industry qualifications, in particular the 2381 16th Edition Wiring Regulations Update and 2391 Inspection and Testing courses.
Director of the ECA, David Pollock says: “We believe our education and training department is second to none within the industry and are very pleased to have achieved City & Guilds centre status. This comes as part of our commitment to provide our members with the highest standards of training to assist them in business improvement and best practice.”
Achieving centre status enables the ECA to be more flexible in the provision of courses, as it now has the capacity to schedule courses on dates and at a level of frequency to suit.
General Manager of Construction & Engineering Technology at City & Guilds, Charles Leigh says: “We are pleased to be associated with the high standard of training provided by the ECA. This partnership will reinforce our joint commitment to meeting the education and training needs of the electrical industry.”
Pollock goes on to say: “We understand the ever changing need of the industry to respond rapidly to evolving technologies by offering members a comprehensive portfolio of training options. Becoming a licensed City & Guilds Centre formalises the existing relationship we already have with City & Guilds and we look forward to further developing this relationship on behalf of our members.”
