“LearningLounge.com is pleased to be an advertising partner with My Local Electrician”
What is Learninglounge.com?
LearningLounge.com content ranges from electrical video presentations to interactive activities.
Training resources can be freely browsed by learners or, for a more prescriptive approach, learners can be organised into workgroups and assigned online assignments to complete. Each user builds up their unique learning record as they complete the content.
Learninglounge.com offers customised online learning to suit corporate, educational, and commercial requirements.
LearningLounge.com is a site that provides subscribers with access to over 60 different electrical resources no matter what stage you are at within your career, whether 1st year apprentice or a fully qualified electrical contractor who just wants a refresher.
They have content ranging from basic electrical science, such as atoms, current flow and Ohms law, through to more complex subjects such as the operation of variable speed drives and inspection and testing to the 17th Edition.
They have a wide range of videos and presentations made with the help of Tony Cable from the NICEIC. From my perspective as an electrician, I feel these videos provide easy to follow, clear instructions. When coming across things that are not in our day to day job routine, we tend to question ourselves as to whether we've done something right. I feel these videos are not only a great resource and keep things fresh in our mind but are also a great way of putting doubts to rest.
The videos are just a small part of what learning lounge can offer you.
