Certificate II in Electrotechnology (Career Start)

Pre-apprenticeship Description

Kick start your career in the electrotechnology industry with this entry-level course. Build the skills you need to get your foot in the door for an apprenticeship or seek trade assistant work to get you started. With the electrical services industry one of the largest special construction industries in Australia, demand for qualified workers is high with over 50,000 job openings in the next five years. As electrical services and technology become more integrated into homes and offices, your specialised skills will be required for installation, maintenance and upgrade. In this course you will learn the skills needed to safely undertake basic electrotechnology work and solve problems in extra-low voltage single-path and multiple-path DC circuits. You'll learn about environmentally sustainable work practices and the selection and use of materials, tools and components for electrical work. This course also covers a General Safety Induction course (White Card) – an industry requirement to work on Queensland construction sites, and some of the units needed for the first stage of an electrical apprenticeship. Successful completion of this course will put you on the path to an apprenticeship with huge choice in the industry. Opportunities exist in electrical cabling, equipment, instrumentation, switchgear, telecommunications, air conditioning and refrigeration, or renewable energy.
