Why study an Engineering Studies Electrical programme with College SA?

All buildings require electrical wiring to be of use to us. As an electrician, you can work in the construction field; planning and laying out the wiring and plug points. 

Qualified electricians are also responsible for issuing electrical certificates to show that the electrical component of a building is safe and according to building regulations. These certificates are usually required when buying or selling a home and when a health and safety officer must sign off on a new building. 

If you don’t want to work in the construction industry, you can start your own business and focus on electrical issues in houses. Many homeowners have problems with lights, plugs or geysers. They then require a qualified electrician to come and replace or install the electrical components in the house.

  • You don’t need a degree to get a job as an Electrician.
  • You will get a recognised qualification once you complete your electrical training.
