Why checking and testing is essential

As an electrician, you’ll likely install and modify countless electrical installations in your career. And whilst you may know the tricks to installing equipment, it’s equally important to know how to check and test the installation before putting it into service.

Our Checking and Testing an Electrical Installation course can teach you to competently check and test a low voltage electrical installation in compliance with the requirement of AS/NZS 3000 and AS/NZS 3017.

Other than ensuring you comply with critical safety standards, this course can benefit your career in other ways as well, and it can protect your reputation and potentially prevent risk of being fined or reported.

The importance of having rescue and CPR certification

As electricians, we keep our modern lives running through installation, maintenance and repairing of electrical systems. However, these tasks come with the occupational hazard of coming into direct contact with live conductors. Therefore, it's important we equip ourselves with the necessary knowledge to remain safe when carrying out our responsibilities.

Our Perform Rescue from a Live LV Panel and CPR course provides training and knowledge to perform rescue procedures from live low voltage (LV) apparatus within the work place. It also trains electricians with the necessary first aid and CPR skills to help save lives if an accident occurs.

In other words, it’s super important to have this course under your belt because things can go wrong in our industry and you need to be prepared in case an incident occurs.

Why you need to have solar skills

As Australia continues to expand its renewable energy adoption, it is increasingly important for electricians to have the knowledge and skills to work on solar power systems. 

Last year in WA, the Government launched a $66.3 million package focused on renewable energy technologies to help kick-start the state’s economy during the early months of COVID. This is one of many funding initiatives we are likely to see in the solar space, meaning there is a bright future ahead for renewable energy technologies and its mainstream adoption. 

Electricians should look to get ahead and invest in photovoltaic (PV) systems training with courses such as:
 
  • Design and Install Grid-Connected PV Systems
    This solar grid-connected design and install course gives you the knowledge and practical skills to design and set up grid-connected photovoltaic systems and the associated equipment. Besides designing the power supply system, you’ll learn how to solve basic problems in photovoltaic equipment and systems which allows you to perform maintenance, fault-finding and repairs.
  • Battery Storage for Grid-Connected PV Systems
    This solar battery storage course teaches you how to design and install battery storage for grid-connected photovoltaic systems. With these skills, you’ll be able to design battery storage systems for PV systems for construction and various other projects.
