Course seemed not relevant to our roles as Field Engineers. Throughout the day and a half of the course we were constantly told that "this will not relate to your role". Hearing that throughout a course does not peak anyone's interest at all. Also the practical side of the course was also not very relevant to our job roles. The first practical I have been told by other engineers that they have not had to make up plugs in around 15years or so as there is no longer a need to - it is an interesting skill to have but not relevant to my job role anymore. The other practical's were not relevant at all, in our job roles I have never heard or been told we will ever have to deal with that side of the job as we are now Unified Comms Technicians which means we specifically deal with the Telecommunications and not much else. I found the trainer occasionally disinterested in the course themselves and did not ever encourage class or group discussions except for the last hour of the whole course in one of the practical's. The course was also just full of theory, but not the theory we can get involved in, it was nearly a whole day and a half of just listening to the instructor talk while we looked at the occasional picture with text on the board.
As per usual, PTT meet all our expectations. We have now used PTT for new edition's, PAT, testing and inspection and design courses and every time we have come away confident in the subject. I would recommend PTT to anyone in the Electrical industry trying to enhance there qualifications and knowledge.
