 Letter to the editor:

Advise on training:

I am looking for a course/practical training  to enable me to become an Electrical panel builder.

I will soon complete the BTEC Advanced Professional Diploma in Building Services Design which covers both Mechanical and Electrical and is at Post Graduate level.

My current employer is considering branching into Panel Building and with having the above, along with AutoCAD and CIBSE accreditation I am a strong candidate.

The idea will most likely be that I design and fabricate.  Is their a specific path or training provider I can follow to get this training? 

If you can advise Kevin on the best way forward please leave a message at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
