Course overview

Course overview

Increase your skill base and improve your career opportunities with this entry-level double qualification. By completing this double trade course you'll be skilled to work in multiple disciplines and meet the technical requirements to gain your electrical licence.

With the electrical services industry one of the largest special construction industries in Australia, there is high demand for qualified workers with over 50,000 job openings over the next five years. As electrical services and technology become more integrated into homes and offices, your specialised skills will be required for installation, maintenance and upgrade.

Gain the skills to interpret electrical drawings, develop circuits, install and maintain electrical components, wiring, equipment, and systems in residential and commercial applications. You will also learn how to install, modify, maintain, and repair instrumentation used in measurement and control systems. Apply your skills and knowledge to measure and control temperature, pressure, and flow and gain skills in instrumentation and programmable logic controller (PLC) control. Our trade teachers and tutors will help you understand the theoretical and practical aspects of electrotechnology to support your success.

This qualification fulfils the technical requirements for you to apply for your electrical contractor licence and become a trade-qualified electrician, or trade-qualified electrical instrumentation technician. Completion of your electrical apprenticeship will put you on the path to further training and licensing opportunities.
