Skills maintenance courses

When you renew your licence you'll need to prove that you've kept your skills and knowledge up-to-date, in three areas:

  • electrical safety legislation
  • risk management
  • testing.

Only skills maintained in the last two years will be recognised as evidence of continued competence in the relevant trade area.

You can do skills maintenance by:

You must keep your rescue and resuscitation skills current. You must prove you can resuscitate a person who has stopped breathing, or is unconscious, because of electric shock.

Electrical line workers must also be trained and competent in carrying out pole-top or transmission tower rescue and resuscitation.
