If your course has been funded by Training Services NSW under Smart and Skilled, you may be contacted by a Training Services NSW representative to discuss your experience at Western Sydney Institute.

Before you enrol in this course you must contact the campus or campuses of your
choice for details of information sessions and other procedures that may apply.
Compulsory attendance at an information session may apply.

This course is for those working as engineering technologists in an electrical
engineering environment.

You will learn how to design and validate/evaluate electrical equipment and
systems, manage risk, estimate and manage projects and provide technical advice
/sales. The course also teaches you the ethical and responsible application of
mathematics, science, engineering techniques, Standards and Codes of Practice,
engineering design practices, supervision and management of physical, human and
financial resources in engineering.

This course meets the national Electrical Regulatory Authorities Council (ERAC)
requirements for an unrestricted 'Electrician's License'. Learners meeting
these requirements within this course will be eligible to apply for a
Certificate III in Electrotechnology - Electrician qualification upon
successful completion of the necessary core, prerequisite and elective units.
The Certificate III in Electrotechnology - Electrician qualification meets
PART of the requirements for issue of a 'Qualified Supervisors Certificate -
Electrician' issued by NSW Fair Trading, which permits the holder to work
unsupervised on low voltage fixed wiring and equipment and to directly
supervise others undertaking this work.

This course is also available as a Traineeship under 'Smart and Skilled'.

You must be a qualified electrician and hold a current Australian unrestricted Electrician's licence. If you are studying to become a qualified electrician, you will need Head Teacher approval to enrol in this course. This course does not deliver the units required for an Electrician’s licence.

To ensure you leave us with the most up to date qualification...

If during or after your enrolment, the course in which you are enrolled is updated in line with national industry standards, the Institute reserves the right to transition you into an alternate course. If this becomes necessary, the Institute will advise you of the change and the arrangements which will be available for you to complete your alternate course.

There are no entry requirements for this qualification.

However, the Electrotechnology Training Package recommends typical language,
literacy and numeracy skill levels needed to successfully complete each
Competency Standard Unit undertaken within this qualification.

Learners should either be in relevant employment or have access to appropriate
simulated workplace environments to achieve the completion requirements of this

Credit (or recognition) for modules/units may be granted based on previous learning, studies, work and/or life experiences. Please discuss this with the teaching section when you enrol.
