The advice I would give is firstly talk to someone you may know that is already in the trade and ask them any questions that you may have or ask them about some of there first hand experiences.

Another good piece of advice would be to go onto YouTube and search some basic electrics, keep in mind that these are the kind of things that you will face when you go to the college phases of your apprenticeship . There are books and e-books that can be purchased to get an understanding.

Theology and Arts at St Pat's, Maynooth



Courses related to this video..

 

Students take Theology in the Faculty of Theology in the Pontifical University; for the Arts component they follow the regular BA courses of the Faculties at Maynooth University.

The subjects Business (International) and Criminology are now also on offer with Theology.

The Theology course aims to provide students with a solid intellectual formation in Theology. The scope of the course is wide, covering the range of the main theological subjects, so that students are introduced both to the breadth of the Christian tradition and to the variety of questions raised for Theology at the present time. Students of the course should develop a well-informed understanding and a deep personal appropriation of the Christian faith.

The Arts subjects offer students the opportunity both to broaden and deepen their knowledge of subjects they have already studied and to embark on new subjects of study. The variety of disciplines available is part of the richness of the Arts, but what all the subjects have in common is that each, in its different way, requires students to consider and reassess the values by which society operates in the modern world.
