electrical licence application

    Recommended Posts

    I have arrived in Perth sponsored as an electrician. Can anyone give me any advice on getting the licence so i can work unsupervised as it is looking like a much more difficult task than 1st seemed. My employer is not an electrical contractor so we aren't sure how we are likely to get through all the 'red tape!'

     

    Thanks

    I can't believe you even managed to get sponsored as an electrician there are hundreds of licenced guys coming back from the mines and needing work. It's a long process to get an A grade licence you also have to work supervised for long time and fill in a log book si don't know how you are going to do that if you are not working for an electrical company. What does the company do that sponsored you?

    You will need to work as a trade assistant for around 12 months. This will mean working supervised and recording your work in a log book. A bit like being an apprentice again. You will also need to take some courses and should be aware these are not cheap.

    Thanks. I have looked at the link posted above and knew about the log book but didn't realise it was going to be such a drawn out process. Or that it would have to be with an electrical contractor, as my employer is not a contractor but he employs electricians to wire the shutters after installation. Looks like it it's going to be more difficult than expected!
