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 will need to be registered for myGovID.
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.
