Skilled electricians are needed in a growing number of areas, including residential, commercial, and industrial electrical construction, electrical maintenance and service, marine electrical work, and utilities.
The Electrical Foundation program, which consists of two blocks of training, provides you with strong technical knowledge while developing the fundamental skills that electricians require.
During the first 8-week block, you will gain generic trade skills and knowledge, preparing you for further study. In the second block, which lasts for 16 weeks, you will participate in an enhanced year one Electrical apprenticeship training session. Here, you will develop both the theoretical and practical skills required of a first-year apprentice.
