An electrical work training permit allows you to do particular training and gain the experience you need to be eligible for an electrical work licence.
As a training permit holder, you may need to complete a structured on-the-job program coordinated by a supervising registered training organisation (RTO).
Your training for a qualification or statement of attainment for electrical licence eligibility must include practical assessments of competencies. This assessment will use:
- electrical industry endorsed training packages
- relevant electro technology tools and equipment.
The RTO must have relevant electro technology resources for you to be deemed competent and provide you with a qualification or statement of attainment.
Who doesn't need a training permit?
You don't need a permit to complete training if you're:
- an electrical apprentice
- a trainee in an approved program
- a student of electrical work being supervised by teaching staff at an approved university, college or school.
