Electrical installation training for apprentices

Hamilton Litestat is providing electrical installation training aids to apprentices at the Kings Langley Campus at West Herts College, Hertfordshire, in an attempt to curb the current industry skills shortage and support the next generation of qualified electricians.

Through its relationship with local wholesaler Grant & Stone Hemel Hempstead, Hamilton is supplying West Herts College with purpose-built smart control wiring boards for use during their electrical training courses. These interactive demonstration boards allow them to learn how to wire Hamilton’s Smart Lighting Control and Multi-Room Audio systems and help them gain experience and confidence in wiring smart control solutions.

The Hamilton training boards feature a mock-layout of a house with LED lamps positioned in various rooms. Attached to the board is a 4-channel Smart Dimmer pack as well as a 2-channel audio pack. The apprentices can wire up various circuits in the house as requested and control the system using a push-button or touchscreen control plate.

Due to the misconception of complicated programming processes, the adoption of smart controls and smart technology amongst qualified electricians has been stilted. Hamilton is continuing its efforts to combat this misunderstanding: it’s Smart Lighting Control Challenge, which has run at various exhibitions, and free training courses at its facilities in Mere have gone some way to help those who want to embrace the ‘smart era’ change.

2018 Hamilton Training Courses
Hamilton is hosting Smart Lighting and Audio Control Training Courses in Mere, Wiltshire, to introduce the benefits of lighting and audio control and help installers expand their services and business revenue. Attendees will learn how to select the right system components, install Hamilton’s plug-and-play 4-channel solution and configure the system for lighting, audio or both.
