Overview

This course is designed for Australian residents above 18 years old who are willing to pursue a career or continue a career pathway within the field of electrotechnology as a recognised Electrician.

This course is focused on Apprenticeship pathways, where the learner has an established Host Employer under whom they are full time or part time employed.

Learners must have the willingness to work as full-time apprentices for 4 years or part-time apprentices for 6.5 years, as required under the Electricity Safety (Licensing and Registration) Regulations 2010, while they are commencing their Training and Assessment with Frontier.

Our nationally recognised UEE30811 – Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician provides competencies to select, install, set up, test, fault find, repair and maintain electrical systems and equipment in buildings and premises. It includes ERAC requirements for an ‘Electrician’s licence’.

The program may be organised/formatted around a combination of approaches that may include:

  • Action Learning with on-site exposure;
  • Coaching and mentoring;
  • Recognition of Prior Learning including credit transfer;
  • Institution based learning and assessment program;
  • Workplace; and

A combination of the above.

Frontier Training and Technology affirms that the training and assessment of all units of competency of this qualification will be delivered in a real or a very closely simulated workplace environment.

When you graduate, you’ll have satisfied the Electrical Regulatory Authority Council’s requirements to become a licensed electrician.

Entry requirements

Applicants must:

  • Be 18 years or over;
  • Be sufficiently proficient in English (read, write and speak) to be able to work successfully in a highly regulated environment;
  • Have satisfactorily completed a minimum of year 12 or equivalent;
  • Students must be an apprentice under the Australian Apprenticeships Scheme (AAS), be employed in the electrical industry and be registered with an Australian Apprenticeship Centre (AAC) prior to enrolment.

Pre Training Review (PTR)

A pre-training interview will be conducted with the applicant by a Frontier representative. This interview will help us identify your prior experience, existing knowledge, skills and suitability for the course. The Pre Training Review will be valuable in determining additional support and/or reasonable adjustment required for you to successfully complete the course.

Language, Literacy & Numeracy

Applicants must undertake a language, literacy and numeracy assessment during their induction session prior to the beginning of the qualification.  Results will be assessed on an individual level by the assessor.

Electrical apprentices will undertake their LLN test using Energy Space’s Readiness Assessment tool. The Readiness Assessment tool is designed to assist aspiring electrical apprentices to understand how well prepared they are (in terms of their literacy and numeracy skills) for the electrical trade program.
