BTEC Level 3 Foundation Award in Electrical Engineering

  1. (1)Health and Safety in the Engineering Workplace
  2. (31) Features and Applications of Electrical Machines
  3. (19) Selecting and Programming PLCs

Each unit is normally split into 4 sections to make studying easier via our online Moodle education platform. You will be assessed with 2 assessments that your tutor will send you on request, so there is no large end of course exam. Also remember you have 12 months of access to your tutor to take you every step of the way. Alternative units are available on request. Note, electrical installation is a practical unit and will require some materials to be purchased (under £100).
