Case studies 1000x250

More than 300 learners are set to benefit from a fruitful new partnership between EAL and electrical engineering training specialists WA Electrical Engineer Training.

WA Electrical Engineer Training has switched all its provision to EAL, the specialist awarding organisation for industry, and helped devise new dynamic qualifications to ensure learners have the most up-to-date skills to take into the workplace. 

WA Electrical Engineer Training’s Managing Director, David Wyre, made the move having developed a strong working relationship with EAL based on mutual trust, understanding and a determination to help boost skills and improve standards across the electrical industry.

“The EAL qualifications match the electrical industry requirements closer than other awarding bodies qualifications,” said Mr Wyre, an electrical engineer and respected consultant in the industry for over 44 years.


“Everyone I have dealt with at EAL has a great commitment to driving the quality in the electrical industry forward. I firmly believe this switch will promote an even stronger relationship with EAL and the NICEIC (the UK’s leading voluntary regulatory body for the electrical contracting industry) which is good for our centre and the wider industry.”

EAL managing director Al Parkes said: “We are delighted to have such a highly-respected trainer as David working with us to ensure EAL qualifications remain the most relevant to industry and delivering a training experience to equip learners with the best possible knowledge and skills they need to do the job.

“WA Electrical Engineer Training’s switch to EAL is a significant vote of confidence in what we are able to deliver in terms of skills solutions and qualifications that are fine-tuned for our sectors, working in partnership with employers and training organisations, utilising all expertise available to be best in class.”
