NECA College Information

Delivery Format

At NECA Training we follow a traditional apprentice delivery format. For the first three stages of the apprenticeship, apprentices will be required to attend college ‘day-a-week’ delivery format for most apprentices at our ACT and Sydney colleges. We also offer training in a ‘block’ pattern from our ACT college.

In the fourth stage of the Apprenticeship, apprentices will be required to complete their final Unit of Competency ‘UEEEL0039- Design, install and verify compliance and functionality of general electrical installations’ also known as ‘Capstone’.

Entry Requirement

There is a short language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) quiz required before enrolment to identify any weaknesses (normally numeracy). If any gaps are identified, we’ll provide the required guidance to reinforce the required underpinning knowledge.A sample quiz demonstrating the required LLN can be accessed HERE


We offer the training at two locations:

  1. Sydney – 122 Hume Highway, Chullora NSW 2190
  2. Canberra – 49 Tennant Street Fyshwick ACT 2609

Government Funded

This training is Government funded. For NSW businesses the training is completely FREE!

For ACT businesses there is a partial payment of $1980/apprentice required from the employer.

We Also Employ

We also employ apprentices so if you’re no longer able to support your apprentice we’ll endeavour to find them a position with one of our hosts.
