An electrician is responsible for the installation, maintenance and repair of all power and electrical systems in residential, commercial and industrial properties. An electrician will install electrical wiring and controls.
An individuals with wide-ranging electrical experience who is not yet qualified, may use the Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician to be recognised as an electrician. The process of converting skills and experience into a recognised qualification is simple, but it does require commitment. Let Skills Certified Australia help you attain the subjects you require to earn the right qualification and electrical contractor's licence.
In order to be eligible for the program, you need to meet one or more of the following criteria:
a crafts certificate,
Trades Recognition Australia
3+ years of local experience
partially completed studies in Australia
electrical City and Guilds qualification
an overseas licence or qualification
Once you have met the eligibility requirements, you will have to complete a challenge test to attain the units you have not yet achieved through an equivalent unit.
A competency conversation or practical will cover the questions for each unit.
If you have insufficient knowledge and experience in a particular subject or if you fail a challenge test, you will require gap training. Gap training involves practical and theoretical assessments, which may be completed online in a classroom or home setting. Practical tasks may be completed onsite, or at a partner RTO training facility.
On completion of all the above, you will have the opportunity to sit the self-paced Capstone and Australian Standards and Wiring Regulations course which includes practical and theoretical exams and refreshers.
