Aico and the Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) are joining forces to help educate and increase understanding of mental health awareness with virtual, online training. These webinar sessions will be delivered alongside Aico’s Expert Installer Training scheme and provide interactive and informative training.
These sessions will be run by a qualified EIC trainer and aim to provide an understanding of what mental health is, knowledge on some common mental health issues, and encourage challenging the stigmas associated with mental health. This initiative will help educate in ways to look after your own mental health and to support someone who may be in distress.
These sessions began in West Lothian College, with the webinars being delivered to apprentices and electrical engineering students following their Expert Installer training. The webinars were limited to six students to allow for better interaction and engagement with the EIC provider and had a positive response from the students.
College Principle Jackie Galbraith comments: “These sessions provided an excellent resource for students to ask questions and talk to their peers.”
The free of charge mental health awareness sessions offered by Aico and the EIC will be rolled out nationwide to those within the electrical industry in the coming months.
