Cal Templeton was previously at Leicester City Football Club on a scholarship and had no prior experience in the plumbing or gas industry. However, he was drawn to the trades industry due to the great earning potential available. Cal joined our Gas Training Course and became an Options Skills gas trainee and successfully went on to qualify as a gas engineer.
Here is what Cal Templeton had to say about his experience of being a gas trainee with us:
“Before the training, I used to be a part of Leicester City Football Club on a scholarship. I had no previous experience in electrics and found out about Options Skills whilst searching for an electrical apprenticeship online.
I chose Options Skills because the steps of the course were clearly explained to me and I found out that it would be a lot quicker for me to qualify than joining a standard apprenticeship.
The course very fast paced but was achievable, meaning you learnt a lot in a short period of time. I would definitely recommend Options Skills to anyone out there and would not have changed anything about my experience. Not that I have completed my course, I am going to gain more experience with my mentor and become self-employed. “
Upon leaving Cal Templeton summed up his training with:
“Enjoyable and nice group to work with.”
