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
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:
- studying a course provided by a registered training organisation(s)
- completing an online self-paced Skills maintenance assessment which is available for all licences.
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.
