Training & Apprenticeships

When you join the EDA as a member or affiliate you unlock a flexible and comprehensive programme designed to attract new talent to your team and to upskill the people you have.

These two programmes add value to your business: apprenticeships and distance-learning product knowledge modules.

Attracting talent and improving professional skills

The UK’s electro-technical supply chain needs talented people with professional skills and knowledge. That’s true whether you’re a wholesaler with a busy trade counter, or a manufacturer/service provider who needs to develop and sell your products throughout the supply chain.

As an EDA member or affiliate you have access to two complementary programmes:

  1. EDA Product Knowledge Programme
  2. EDA Apprenticeship Programme: attract new talent to your team or to develop the people you already have

In this section you’ll find lots of useful information. Simply click on the boxes below but don’t forget that the EDA team is always on hand to answer your questions.
