What are we looking for?

The term of an apprenticeship in the electrical industry is four years and includes on- and off-the-job training.

In Western Australia, apprenticeships are delivered under a competency based, flexible training system. Workplace and off-the-job training and assessment procedures have been introduced based on the skills the apprentice should acquire over the term of the apprenticeship. Off-the-job training is either one day per week or as a block (anywhere from 1–3 weeks at a time) at a training college and the rest of the time is spent on the job.

Apprenticeships offer the ability to earn money while you learn a qualification and build practical skills. Applicants must be able to demonstrate the following:

  • Ability to undertake manual tasks
  • Self-starter with a positive attitude
  • Strong communication skills
  • Ability to liaise with customers, clients and management
  • Evidence of colour vision testing
  • Pass ongoing drug and alcohol screening
  • Good mathematics skills and a willingness to learn
