Those completing this program successfully will be able to seek employment in all Electrotechnology Trades. This program includes work placement in the industry. It aims to provide participants with skills to assist in gaining an Electrotechnology apprenticeships (Electrical, Refrigeration, Electronics and Telecommunications trades).
It's important to have good reading and writing skills because the Electrotechnology industry is always moving ahead; you need to keep up to date with safety issues, quality standards and technological advances, complete worksheets and provide written records.
The basic foundations for all electrotechnology workers are good math skills; these skills are used in practical, everyday situations. Just as a builder has to measure his materials an electrician has to measure things like current and voltage and a refrigeration mechanic measures temperature and pressure. This means you need to be comfortable working with numbers, even if that means using a calculator.
Many of the maths skills you need are closely linked to a basic knowledge of science; you work the numbers within the scientific rules. Many of these 'rules' or 'laws' were written hundreds of years ago after practical experiments conducted by scientists and they haven't changed since, so you only have to learn them once.
Basic hand tool skills
Support is available to help students who may have difficulty meeting the above requirements. Some of these skills may be improved through the learning process.
