This is an apprenticeship program.
The Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician is for people who are employed as electrical apprentices.
This program provides you with the skills to select, install, set up, test, repair and maintain electrical systems and equipment.
On-the-job training with your employer is combined with studying at RMIT. You’ll complete practical and theoretical classes to gain the skills and knowledge to work at a trade level in the electrical industry.
When you graduate, you’ll have satisfied the Electrical Regulatory Authority Council’s requirements to become a licensed electrician.
*Programs may change as training packages are updated.
RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches including lectures, seminars, studios, workshops, presentations, group discussions and syndicate work. These are primarily in English.
You will have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes examinations, essays, reports, oral classes, presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects and practical assignments.
Skills in electrotechnology remain in high demand, particularly in industries such as construction, mining and manufacturing.
Electricians can work in-house for large companies, within smaller operations, as external consultants or as self-employed tradespeople.
Some electricians may undergo further study to develop skills in electrical engineering, dual trade qualifications or specialisation.
