How Hager are taking a flexible approach to learning

L-R Paul Chaffers and Paul Collins, Technical Training Managers at Hager

Associate Member Hager is dedicated to educating the next generation of electricians while helping current contractors remain at the top of their game. Here, its training experts give an overview of how they do it – including details of two new in-depth and flexible CPD courses

Learning is a fundamental part of any profession, especially so in the electrical sector, with ever-evolving wiring regulations, new legislation released regularly and customer requirements changing rapidly.

Installers, and the companies they work for, have to be proactive with their learning to ensure they remain at the very top of their game, while ensuring that their work remains compliant, safe and of the highest standard. It’s not only a question of safety, but also one of reputation across the industry and among commercial and residential consumers.

For the team at Hager, supporting that essential learning process is a core aspect of our work and we are eager to continue supporting the contractor community by sharing industry news, the latest innovations and, of course, product knowledge too.

Electricians never stop learning. Many within the industry regularly take part in courses to learn or refresh their knowledge about the latest wiring regulations or sector solutions. With an influx of innovative products hitting the market in recent times, including EV chargers and renewable energy installations, obtaining the relevant knowledge is a necessary requirement.

“we’re proud to offer bespoke learning courses to build upon existing knowledge and help installers discover solutions to the most important questions or problems in the industry”

At Hager, like SELECT, we’re committed to excellence, safety and efficiency. Our customers know they can expect these standards from us and by using our products they can pride themselves on them too. But this doesn’t come without hard work and devotion to remaining up to date with the latest legislation and industry information. 

As part of our dedication to assisting our customers to do business better, we’re proud to offer bespoke learning courses to build upon existing knowledge and help installers discover solutions to the most important questions or problems in the industry.

While further and regular education is vital to provide the best service and solutions for customers, we understand that balancing working and learning can prove challenging. Finding sufficient time to master courses and review resources is often tricky. That’s why we offer both online and in-person learning options, enabling our community of contractors to learn at a time and location which suits them.

Our catalogue of online interactive courses can be accessed any time and from anywhere, giving a level of flexibility that works no matter what the contractor’s schedule or preferred method of learning. Plus, they vary in length – from taking just minutes to complete, to much more in-depth sessions, meaning there’s an opportunity to learn no matter how long the gap in your diary is.

If in-person training is more your style, we regularly host training days at our dedicated facility in Shropshire – its central location means they attract contractors from across the country. We also have a team of experts who travel to deliver bespoke sessions. 

With an array of topics to choose from, you can delve into in-depth technical and regulation training, insight on our product solutions or bitesize updates to keep you up-to-date with recent changes. Plus, we’ve partnered with some of the industry’s leading training providers to offer a wide range of training courses. 


Courses to consider

The online courses provide key information for electrical professionals – plus those all-important CPD points

Hager is delighted to have launched two new CPD-accredited online courses which are now available to SELECT Members:

→ Residual Current Devices

In this module, you’ll gain an extensive understanding of residual current devices (RCDs), their selectivity and coordination requirements and how the devices can be used for a wide range of applications. You’ll also get an insight into how the devices detect specific residual currents, provide earth fault protection and other general characteristics of their RCD devices while staying compliant with BS 7671:2018+A2:2022.

→ Surge Protection DevicesIn this course, you can gain a comprehensive understanding of how surge protection devices provide protection against transient overvoltages and switching events. Learn how to understand the causes behind surges and their potential risks to sensitive electronic equipment by keeping up with the latest wiring regulations.
