Classroom Option for Pre-Master Electrician Course

Classroom – The course material is delivered by an ESA Trainer in a face-to-face interactive group learning environment.

This learning method may be best suited to individuals who:

  • prefer to attend a course on scheduled dates and times.
  • prefer to learn through face-to-face interaction with an instructor and fellow participants.

Please note, classroom courses delivered over 6 consecutive days (e.g. weeklong sessions) are learning intensive.  Individuals who choose to participate in these sessions should be prepared for full day classroom instruction followed by a self directed review of the course material at home for the duration of the course.
