Why complete a pre-apprenticeship course?

If you’re just starting out and are still in high school, completing a pre-apprenticeship course will be your best option. By completing a pre-apprenticeship you’ll get ahead of the game and become equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to build a strong foundation for a fulfilling career in the electrical industry.

Why complete an apprenticeship course?

Once you’ve completed a pre-app, you then need to choose which field you want to work in and secure an apprenticeship with an employer.

Applying for an apprenticeship pathways course, such as a Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician, will allow you to complete your ‘off-the-job’ training whilst also completing ‘on-the-job’ training directly with an employer or via a registered Group Training Organisation (GTO), such Electrical Group Training.


Intakes for 2022 Pre-Apprenticeship and Apprenticeship Pathways courses are now underway!
Both the pre-apprenticeship course Cert II in Electrotechnology and the apprenticeship pathways course Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician, are available* on-demand to commence in 2022 at both our Joondalup and Jandakot campuses.
