NAPIT Approved Electrical Training Centre for West Mids

First NAPIT Approved Electrical Training Centre for the West Midlands

NAPIT has officially opened the first NAPIT approved Electrical Training Centre in the West Midlands, marking a new partnership with South and City College Birmingham.

The opening, which took place on the 3rd of November, has forged a new relationship that now means the College will be able to offer trainees Blue Flame Certificated Full Scope electrical training, providing a key stepping stone that will allow them to demonstrate competence in one of the key areas required to join the electrical Competent Person Scheme. 

Commenting on the opening, NAPIT Chief Operating Officer Martin Bruno said: NAPIT have been providing industry recognised training across the UK for many years now and we've been ensuring high standards in the electrical industry since our inception in 1992.

We have been thoroughly impressed by South and City College Birmingham’s outstanding commitment to education, training and sustainability. Their investment in practical, vocational skills is central to growth in the local community and we look forward to working in partnership with the College for many years to come. I encourage young people and adult learners alike to consider learning a new trade in this fantastic venue.

John Collins from South and City College Birmingham added: There are only a handful of other NAPIT approved centres like this across the country, so this partnership feels like a real achievement for us. There will be a real benefit to electricians and people wanting to become electricians in the West Midlands as they will no longer need to travel long distances for the required courses.

We have excellent facilities here at the college, and our tutors are some of the best in their field. We are looking forward to our first class of students coming through.
