Not at this point in time.

When do I need to pay for my training?

Training MUST be paid for before attending a course.

Do you have other training centres in different locations?

Not at the moment. We’re investigating options in other parts of NSW and the ACT but nothing has been confirmed.

Do you offer onsite training?

Not normally. All our specialised equipment and computer rooms are set up in our training centre so it needs to remain on site. We have large scale commercial clients that we deliver on-site training for but these are arranged with them on a contract basis.

I’m after the Asbestos Awareness for ACT, can I do your course?

What do I need to do to become an ASP?

There are 5 basic steps:

  1. Complete the training with us
  2. Set up your safe systems of work
  3. Apply to the Department of Industry to be accredited as an ASP
  4. Purchase all the required safety, rescue and work equipment
  5. Apply with the Electricity Distributors (eg Ausgrid, Endeavour, Essential) to work as an ASP on their network

For more detailed information on the ASP requirements click on the link for a printable version of the Department of Industry ASP-Application-Form-and-Scheme-Rules Nov 2016.


What is ASP – Statutory Training?

Statutory training is your basic safety training for working on the electricity network. It is not required when first submitting your application to become an ASP with the Department of Industry however it is a requirement before being allowed to work on the electricity distributors network ie Ausgrid, Endeavour Energy, Essential Energy. Normally people enrol in the statutory training at the same time as the rest of the ASP training.

Can I be Class 2B (Underground) and Class 2C (Overhead ) ASP accredited only?

Yes. The rules allow you to apply for any Level 2 ASP class independently. You don’t have to complete the Class 2D (Metering) to be eligible for Class 2C (Overhead) or Class 2B (Underground).

Is there a specific order that I need to follow to complete all ASP Level 2 Classes?

Yes. You must complete the ‘Core’ units before being eligible to attend Class 2B (Underground) or Class 2C (Overhead) training. We offer all the components on a rotating roster so there’ll be training for the class you want within the next few weeks. Click on the ‘DATES AND BOOKINGS’ button on the course page for the next available dates.

Do I pay less if I enrol in all Level 2 ASP classes and do the combined training (2B+2C+2D)? What is the difference?

No. You don’t save any money. There are core units of training that repeat themselves throughout all 3 classes so you’re only required to complete them once. This is why the combined course appears cheaper at first glance. If you only attend one class and come back for another class at a later date you will only be required to complete the ‘gap’ training to complete the class. For example; If you complete Class 2B now and come back for Class 2C later you’ll only need to sit for 4 days training not 7.

Do I need to complete the online registration form again for every ASP class?

No. Just complete the online registration for one class (eg Class 2B) and leave a message in the comments field that you want to add more classes (eg Statutory and Class 2C). We’ll do the rest.

Telecommunications Courses

ACMA – Open Registration and Endorsements

Open registration – Structured Cabling (cat 6) – Coaxial – Optic Fibre – Smart Wired and more!

I want to get the Open Registration Cablers licence. What course do I enrol in to get the licence.

Enrol in the ‘Open Registration’ course on the telecommunications page of this website.

If I complete the Open Registration and the endorsements is it the same thing as having Cert III?

Technically no, it’s not the same thing however there is a huge array of work you can do with just the Open registration and endorsements. Many electricians complete the endorsements to supplement the electrical work they normally do.

Do I need to have an electrical licence to do telecommunications training?

No but someone starting ‘green’ needs to complete additional training and demonstrate 360 hours work. For more information read page 3 of the ACMA registration rule HERE.

Can I install Cat. 6 cable if I’ve completed the ‘Open Registration’ course?

No. You must also complete the ‘Structured Cabling’ endorsement.

Solar Grid + Battery Storage

Clean Energy Council (CEC) approved training

CPD – Online Solar Courses

I want to install Solar Panels. What do I need to do?

Attend the Solar Grid Connect course listed on this website and then apply to the Clean Energy Council (CEC) for accreditation. Details on how to apply are discussed in detail throughout the course.

Do I need to be a licensed electrician to install solar panels?

Technical no but the prerequisite subjects required to attend the course are embedded in the electrical trade and we don’t offer them as separate subjects here at NECA Training. This means we can only accept electricians or apprentices that have completed the certificate III in electrotechnology but haven’t received their proficiency certificate yet.

The exact wording on ASQAs website for the prerequisites is:

  • UEENEEE104A -Solve problems in d.c. circuits
  • UEENEEE137A -Document and apply measures to control OHS risks associated with electrotechnology work and
  • UEENEEE108A -Lay wiring/cabling and terminate accessories for extra-low voltage (ELV) circuits or
  • UEENEEG106A – Terminate cables, cords and accessories for low voltage circuits

Note: Those holding an Unrestricted Electrician’s Licence or equivalent issued in an Australian State or Territory meet the pre-requisite requirements of this unit.


I’m an engineer, can I complete the Grid Connect course and Design and Install solar panels?

Anyone can attend our training and receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course but a person can only receive a statement of attainment and be officially qualified if they meet the prerequisite requirements stated in the previous point.

Are NECA Training offering a battery storage course?

Disconnect-Reconnect (Hot Water, Motors, Appliances)

Non-electrical tradespeople (plumbers, fitter machinist etc) wanting to perform their own electrical connections when conducting a like-for-like replacement.

Note: You must have a relevant trade licence to be accepted by the department of fair trading. An example would be a plumber that needs the training to disconnect and reconnect a hot water system.
