Enrolling for second semester 2022 (July commencement)

Who is it for?

NECA Training now offers a service that enables individuals with an incomplete electrical trade qualification to complete it and ultimately obtain an electrical licence.

Typical examples of applicants are individuals that:

1) completed the electrical qualification but never obtained a licence

2) let their licence lapse for an extended period and are refused renewal

3) completed all their units of competency but failed their final capstone assessment.

What do I need?

Did you start an Australian Apprenticeship, complete your time on the job, but didn’t finish your studies?

Evidence of prior studies and suitable work experience evidence will need to be presented.

You will also be required to meet a minimum language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) standard.

Overseas Qualification

Unfortunately at this stage we are not assessing overseas qualifications. This may be something NECA considers in the future.
