Start a pre-apprenticeship in electrical 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 January 3rd to February 10th, 2017 and you can complete before most other students have started their training. But hurry - applications for intensive course close December 9th, 2016.
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.
