Applicants in the licensed occupations of Electrician (General) and Electrician (Special Class), will be issued with an
Offshore Technical Skills Record (OTSR). The OTSR is sufficient evidence to apply for a provisional licence with
Australian State and Territory licensing authorities.
Applicants who wish to progress to a current, identified Australian occupational licence and/or be awarded the
relevant Australian qualification, must undertake further Australian context training and a period of supervised
employment in Australia. The training covers Australian-specific knowledge such as workplace health and safety
regulations, codes of practice and other Australian standards. CET is a provider of the Minimum Australian Context
Gap Training for holders of an OTSR.
If unsuccessful, CET will advise you of the gaps identified in your skills and experience.
If you disagree with an assessment outcome, you may lodge an application for an assessment review with CET. To start the review process, you must first pay the review fee to TRA via the TRA Online Portal. The RTO Assessment Payment Identifier Code for the review will be provided in the final outcome documentation.
The electrical trade in Australia is a licensed occupation, where licence holders have completed an apprenticeship and sat a licensing exam, known as the ‘capstone’. Each state and territory has similar requirements for undertaking electrical work, and require the worker to hold a licence as a minimum.
In Western Australia, the licensing authority is Energy Safety. Information on licensing can be found on their website https://www.commerce.wa.gov.au/energysafety/. Successful applicants through TSS, OSAP or TRS can use their OTSR issued by CET to obtain a provisional licence. This licence allows the OTSR holder to gain experience in Australia, while undertaking the Minimum Australian Context Gap Training course, run by CET in Western Australia. You can find details on costs and how to enrol here.
