I like the practical side of my course, particularly the wiring side. I like using my hands and testing the final product to know whether I have completed the circuit correctly. My teacher really helps me understand areas clearly, enabling me to achieve the best outcome. I really liked the science principles module because it gave me a challenge. In the future I want to be a marine electro technical officer.Electrical Installations Level 2 Diploma
