This qualification provides competencies to manufacture, fit, assemble, erect, operate, test, fault find, alter, repair electrical equipment and includes electrical wiring work only if that work is associated with assembling, maintaining, terminating or altering the wiring between electrical components within a plant or machinery.
Note: Electrical equipment means any appliance, article, accessory, wire, fitting, cable, conduit or apparatus that generates, uses, conveys or controls (or that is intended to generate, use, convey or control) electricity above extra low voltage.
An electrical fitter is not authorised to install any electrical wiring systems within an electrical installation as prescribed by definitions contained in AS/NZS 3000. This is the main difference between students studying to be Electrotechnology Electricians versus Electrical Fitting.
While undertaking this qualification, apprentices gain the skills and knowledge to:
- Assemble, mount and connect control gear and switchgear
- Participate in electrical work and competency development activities
- Document and apply measures to control OHS risks associated with electrotechnology work
- Solve problems in d.c. circuits
- Use drawings, diagrams, schedules, standards, codes and specifications
- Fabricate, assemble and dismantle utilities industry components
- Apply environmentally and sustainable procedures in the energy sector.
Successful completion of the course will result in the issuance of a Certificate of Qualification and a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment for UEE33020 - Certificate III in Electrical Fitting.
It includes ERAC requirements for an Electrical Fitting licence.
Participants must be employed and registered under a training contract as an apprentice. Tec-NQ conducts a Learning, Literacy and Numeracy Assessment as part of its enrolment process.
