Our customers say it best...

"Completed the domestic installer course along with 18th edition, 2391 and EV charging point installation. Having had no previous electrical experience, I found the course was pitched at a suitable level from which I could understand all that was being taught. The course content was delivered at the right pace for the audience and was constructed well to maximise learning potential."

Mark Mountjoy

"I was recommend to do the domestic installer course with Universal Skills by another electrician who completed the course some years ago. I have not been disappointed.

From the outset USG have been honest about the expectations of the course and what we have by the end of it. Nothing beats experience and that’s what I now need to go out and get having passed all the exams and practical tests as part of this set of City & Guilds qualification."
