Electrical Contractors Training Program


The Electrical Licensing Board and appropriate industry representatives in W.A, have endorsed this programme at a level of training that is consistent with the minimum needs of a person seeking to establish their own electrical contracting business.

Energy Safety has implemented changes to standardise Electrical Nominee modules across all Registered Training Organisations.

As of the 1st of August 2021 there will be a greater focus on maximum demand and, to accommodate for this change, you will now be required to complete pre-course reading and a self-assessment task prior to attending class.

A design project will now be required after you have finished in-class training. This project must be completed within four weeks of your training date.

A reasonable level of computer literacy is required to complete the assessments for this course.

The Electrical Contractors Course takes place over 2 weeks (10 days).

Class times are 7.30am to 4.00pm
