Technology is changing at a faster rate than ever before. The pursuit of innovation is having a major impact on the way that we live, work and interact. Our technology faculty brings together the learning programmes that are developing the technicians and innovators of tomorrow.
As you progress through your programme, you will gain vital skills and learn about different parts of the electrical-installation and electro-technical industry. You will be trained in the fundamental techniques, technology, science, and health and safety required for electrical installation work.
If you are already in the industry, we also have programmes for professional development accreditation.
We have some exceptional resources that replicate professional environments including the AM2 Centre at Guildford College, a licensed National Electrotechnical Training (NET) centre authorised to deliver NET assessments for electrical apprentices/trainees.
Outside of Guildford, we offer points of entry into the rapidly growing industry of electric vehicles, including courses on how to install charging points and vehicle hazard management.
