hey all! im 25 and have been an electrician for 3 years. I have passed city and guilds 2330 and nvq 3 in electrical installation., but im hoping to leave the commercial side of electrics which im in at the moment and hopefully get a job in the national grid, but obviously realise its a different field than im used to. Im looking to do a HNC in an electrical field but have a few issues, firstly i dont know which one would be most useful for me to go into, and secondly i work away a lot and my only option would be to do it through open university and distance learning, but im worried on how this would look for employers? Are these qualifications frowned upon or are they recognised higer in the elctrical industry? if someone could please give me some advice i would really appreciate it because im at a total loss at the moment. thank you.

Try to decide what type of work you want to do in then future and then go with a HNC which fits with that. HNC's are well known and respected by employers. If you study while working they will respect that also, because it shows committment. Take a look at http://www.tees.ac.uk/schools/sse/tuol/ and have a chat with them for further advice.

Regards.

thanks for that link westonpa, just been on that site and they seem to have a really good range of qualifications available. im thinking substations or linesman at the moment but i know how difficult it is to get into such a place so i wont get my hopes up.
