Electrical Online Training for Electricians

by Steve on June 10, 2011

I’ve signed up to a great new way of learning online and it’s good news for electricians !

Online learning specialists Learning Lounge have launched an online training solution which is ideal for electricians.  The subscription based website offers online training resources which can be great for electricians and trainees looking for flexible learning without the need to attend courses and classes. Online distance learning is an easy way of updating your knowledge and also for those already enrolled on college courses and studying for electrical qualifications or exams.

Learning Modules

Each module is based around a training video  and ways to consolidate your knowledge in the form of test, quizes and mock exams.  Here are some examples of the training videos:

An Introduction to Protection for Safety and Fault Protection

Inspection and Testing Initial Verification for Domestic Properties

Technical Knowledge

Learning Lounge is excellent for keeping up with the latest technical information and updates to BS 7671 Amendments and wiring regulations.  Of course modules also cover Inspection and Testing and new technologies such as Solar PV.  It’s a bit like having your own personal training programme with a tutor who comes out when you need them.  I actually find it an easier and quicker way of learning than reading through updates and guides. You can even test yourself with training assessments and mock exams.

Some of the Benefits of Learning Lounge Online

  • Learn at your own pace at any time.
  • 24 hour access to a wealth of electrical related knowledge.
  • Easy to use interface.
  • Up to date training material relevant to modern electricians and trainees or apprentices.
  • Learn the key points of each topic using tests & quizes.
  • Assessments and Mock Exams which are very useful for targeting areas of revision.
  • Record your progress with your own Activity Log and Learning Record.
  • Ideal for supplementing and consolidating your knowledge if already studying at college.

If you are serious about your job as an electrician and doing things right then check out the Learning Lounge website. It can save you time and money.

Electrician’s Blog Subscription Offer

I wouldn’t promote something that I didn’t use myself and I think LL is a great way for electricians and trainees to learn and keep updated.  Let me know what you think. Your comments would be welcome at the bottom of this page – Steve.

12 months subscription for access to all the training modules at Learning Lounge is around £50.

Learning Lounge Subscription Types:

Pro or Study Versions?

The video content of the Pro is exactly the same as Study. With the study you can do the revision assessments and quizzes for different C&G courses – so in real terms the Study is better value for money.

LL say that the Pro option was initially setup because they believed that qualified electricians wouldn’t want quizzes etc. but I think they’re useful.

Hi Shane
I’ve not heard of them before but they seem legit from their website. I would recomend trying to get some reports from anyone who has already taken their courses.

You could also try asking on the forums- http://www.electriciansblog.co.uk/2009/04/electricians-forum/

This is an excellent example of quality article content. It’s well-written, interesting, intelligible and uncomplicated.I like your online electrician training. If I were a writer, this is how I would write this content. You have a lot of writing talent.

I thought I’d add my tuppenceworth in case it helps anyone to decide whether to pay for the Learning Lounge videos. Firstly it’s fair to say you don’t need those quizzes and yes it is simply a collection of useful videos on all stuff electrical. So at first you think – watch them all in one afternoon and be done with it, is that really worth £40? Read more… http://www.electriciansblog.co.uk/2011/10/learning-lounge-electrical-review/

Hi David

Thanks for your email.

I use Learning Lounge Electrical as a resource for filling in the gaps in my knowledge and getting up to date info on all different aspects of the job. There is so much to learn and I find video training easier to remember than reading books.

If you’re already studying or part qualified with the view to upgrading your qualifications you’ll probably find all you need in the LL modules, but you’ll still need to take a recognised training course to get the paper qualifications.

To be honest, for less than £40 it’s a bargain.
If you decide to try it don’t forget to use the BLOGME code for your discount.

Good Luck and Regards

I have read your comments, looked at both websites, and am convinced of the quality of training. But is it an actual course to get you through the 17th, or just a collection of very useful training videos?

Also, I am a part scope qualified tradesperson who hopes to gain full Part P through doing the 17th rather than upgrading with another day. Will this website and training take me through all that I need to know and learn?

Many thanks for your help and advice
