Aurecon Australasia Pty Ltd

Type of institution: Registered Training Organisation
Level: Pre-degree
CRICOS:

This qualification provides the skills and knowledge to work in power system substations in the electricity supply industry (ESI). This qualification covers selecting, installing, setting up, testing, fault finding, repairing and maintaining electrical systems and equipment in buildings and premises. It also provides a career in installation and maintenance of substations, such as the maintenance of high voltage (HV) power system, including circuit breakers and transformers. It includes substation switching, inspection and diagnosing and rectifying faults. Options are available for skills to be obtained in high current direct current (d.c.) switchgear and equipment, installation of HV plant and equipment and/or the maintenance and commissioning of discrete protection and control systems.It includes the Electrical Regulatory Authorities Council (ERAC) requirements for an \u2018Electrician\u2019s licence\u2019. Competency development activities in this qualification are subject to regulations directly related to licencing.The skills and knowledge described within the units in this qualification may require a licence or permit to practice in the workplace.Additional and/or other conditions may also apply under state and territory legislative and regulatory licencing requirements which must be confirmed prior to commencing the qualification.
