If you want to become an electrician, there are a few different pathways you can choose from. With the numerous RTO’s (like the College of Electrical Training), and TAFE options in Perth, it can be tough to select a place that offers the most valuable and reputable training for your electrical future. Becoming a qualified electrician can set you up for a rewarding and challenging career, but it all starts with the right electrical apprenticeship, and importantly, the right pre-apprenticeship.
