Get your electrotechnology career started here

Start an electrical pre-apprenticeship straight after the New Year and get a head start on the competition when employers make the first call for new electrical apprentices.

Choose the option of an intensive six-week, five-day-a-week course from 2 January 2018 delivered at the Dandenong and Frankston campuses and you can complete before most other students have started their training. Whether you choose the intensive stream or normal course duration, you'll learn about the electrotechnology industry and develop skills in domestic and commercial electrical work.

You’ll learn about workshop practices and hand skills, electrical wiring and equipment, electrical drawing, electrical regulations, test instruments, communications skills, computer software applications, applied electricity and workplace safety. If you gain an apprenticeship after successful completion of the Certificate II in Electrotechnology (Career Start), the schooling component of your apprenticeship training may be reduced.

Intensive course runs 2 January - 9 February 2018, five days a week. Course class times are between 8am and 4.30pm.
Other course intakes - some classes may be scheduled after hours on week days.
Frankston, Dandenong and Mornington Peninsula classes are held three days a week from 8am to 4.30pm.
Berwick TEC classes are held four days a week from 8am to 4.30pm over 8 weeks.
