If you have recently moved to Australia with an overseas electrical license then the only thing standing in between your skills and an Australian electrical licence is the 10809NAT Course in Electrician- Minimum Australian Context Gap training.

Our 10809NAT Course in Electrician- Minimum Australian Context Gap training provides a pathway to holders of an Offshore Technical Skills Record (OTSR) towards completion of the qualification UEE30820 Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician and issuance of an unrestricted Australian Electrical licence.

This course is exclusively designed for overseas workers with an electrical background in cabling, lifts or general who wants to move to Australia and gain a relevant licence for employment. The short course provides you with the training and assessment of six core competency standard units and one elective competency standard unit, required knowledge for Australian standards and skill components through online training as well as face-to-face practical demonstrations and observation. This training comprises formal off–the-job training at an Australian RTO and on-the-job training with an employer in Australia.

Once this is complete the individual is awarded the relevant Training Package qualification and can then apply for a full licence (where relevant).

Entry requirements

Entrants to the 10809NAT Course in Electrician – Minimum Australian Context Gap must:

  • hold an Offshore Technical Skills Record (OTSR) for a UEE30820 Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician (or successor)
  • hold a provisional/restricted licence issued by the regulatory authority responsible for regulating electrical work and licensing of workers in the jurisdiction where the training will take place
  • be engaged (employed) as an electrical worker or have access to a workplace environment that replicates workplace conditions

Applicants must undertake a language, literacy and numeracy assessment during their induction session prior to beginning the qualification. Results will be assessed on an individual level by the assessor. The requisite level 3 in language, literacy and numeracy capabilities is expected. However, depending upon the level of support required for the language, literacy or numeracy an alternative training and assessment methods may be used or the learners will be recommended to pursue Foundation Skills program, which will help them fulfil the LLN gap and achieve the qualification.
