This apprenticeship is for those employed as instrument or electrical apprentices, or for licensed electricians who would like to upskill in the area of instrumentation and become a dual-tradesperson.
The program will help you progress within the diverse electrotechnology industry, which includes electrical engineering, industrial measurements and control, electrical appliances servicing, electronic and radio communication equipment and wiring installation.
You'll learn to select, install, set up, test, troubleshoot, repair, maintain and commission instruments to measure and record physical and chemical actions, and associated process control systems.
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 or instrumentation industries.
*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'll 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.
This program has strong links to industry through a well-established Industry Advisory Committee (IAC). The IAC includes professionals from a range of organisations, who provide regular feedback on the program and the changing needs of industry.
Teaching staff have extensive experience and networks.
There is currently a significant shortage of trained specialists in instrumentation and control, and candidates who can show expertise across both areas can expect strong employment opportunities and wage prospects.
When you complete this program, you can find work in:
- general power
- fire protection and security
- robotics and automated process systems
- instrumentation (food processing, water, petrochemical, mining and manufacturing)
- optical data and voice systems
- electrical motors and control systems.
Professional recognition and accreditation
Graduates can apply for an A grade electrical licence through Energy Safe Victoria.
