Course Overview

Are you already studying an electrical apprenticeship and thinking of ways you can specialise in a certain area? Why not consider specialising in electrotechnology?

This thriving field offers limitless possibilities as you learn to select, install, set up, test, fault find, repair and maintain electrical systems and equipment in many environments. Plug yourself in for this exciting course that includes ERAC requirements for an ‘Electrician’s License’.

Taught one day a week for the duration of your electrical apprenticeship, the course is a dynamic option designed to be as flexible as possible to fit into your everyday life and current workload.

You’ll be trained in theoretical, practical and online resources, and at the end of the course, you’ll be in even higher demand thanks to your specialised qualifications.

When you finish this course, you’ll be nationally recognised in the field, leading you towards a career as an electrical tradesperson or a general electrician. You’ll also be able to work and earn, with the possibility of taking your studies and career even further.

This might mean studying a Certificate IV in Electrical Instrumentation or a Certificate III in Instrumentation and Control. Both of these qualifications will add to your skillset and improve your employment opportunities in the future, and we’ll be here to help you make those decisions when the time comes.

There has never been a better time to get specialised qualifications and TAFE Gippsland is the perfect environment to help you achieve success.

Please note, students must be indentured as an apprentice electrician with a valid contract of training and registered on DELTA.
