To become an apprentice you will need an employer and a training contract – your employer chooses the training provider like us, a private RTO, or TAFE. Contact an Australian Apprenticeship Support Network Provider (AASN) or a Group Training Organisation for more information.

This qualification provides individuals with the skills and knowledge to select, install, set up, test, fault find, repair and maintain electrical systems and equipment in buildings and premises. It
includes Electrical Regulatory Authority Council (ERAC), or their successor’s, Essential Performance Capabilities for an ‘Unrestricted Electrician’s license’.
The skills and knowledge described in this qualification require a licence or permit to practice in the workplace where work is carried out on electrical installations which are designed to operate at voltages greater than 50 volt (V) alternating current (a.c.) or 120 V direct current (d.c.).

Competency development activities in this qualification are subject to regulations directly related to licensing. Where a licence or permit to practice is not held, a relevant contract of training
through an Australian Apprenticeship, may be required. To obtain an Unrestricted Electrician’s Licence in most jurisdictions the qualification must be completed as an apprenticeship or Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) pathway.

Where required for Licencing, the certification documentation issued must indicate if the qualification was completed as an apprenticeship or Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) pathway.

This qualification is delivered to overseas students fulltime integrating the following blended modes of delivery:

  • Scheduled face to face class hours
  • Online learning hours
  • Self-study

This qualification is delivered twenty (20) hours per week, over a hundred and five (105) weeks + 24 weeks break.
