A Grade Electrical Licence - Gap Training

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I am new to this forum and this is my first post.


I am living in Perth, WA and trying to find electrical work to gain the "A grade electrical licence".


I hold a provisional electrical licence and require "gap training" before I am allowed to take the required capstone exam.


I have been in Perth for almost 5 years. I tried to get a job when I first arrived with no luck. As a result of this I started working international in the oil & Gas. I am now trying again and facing the same problems I did 5 years ago. I have pretty much applied to every company, agency and rope access company with only one company offering me a start, unfortunately he didn't want to pay me.


Unfortunately most companies in WA are not aware of the process for a overseas electrician to gain an Australian electrical license and have no interest in employing a overseas qualified electrician. They simply prefer to employ a Australian qualified electrician or an apprentice.

I have done some Australian courses and licences such as

EEHA, High risk work, MSIC, White card

If anyone can help with regards contacts etc it will be greatly appreciated.
