Frequently Asked Questions

How do you become an Electrician in Victoria?

To be an electrician within Victoria, you must hold a Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician or equivalent. Completing an Australian apprenticeship takes four years which includes a contract of training as an apprentice electrician as well as learning on the job with at least 12 months’ experience carrying out electrical installation work with your employer.  This means you will be both learning on the job and at an electrical trade school.

Why become an Electrical Apprentice?

Becoming an Electrician can be an extremely rewarding career decision.  When considering how to become a licensed electrician, remember that your apprenticeship is one of the most important elements of the process. The apprenticeship is where you are able to learn skills that are necessary to achieve long-term success by working closely with experienced electricians who have already attained success on their own.  The key is to having a great learning institution and an employer who can show you a variety of electrical installations within the industry.  With a willingness to learn and the environment in which to do so, it will be much easier to fulfill your goal of becoming a licensed electrician who makes a comfortable living providing valuable service to your community.

What is the maximum age to get an electrical apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships can start at any age but the minimum requirement is 16 years old, and all applicants must no longer be in full-time education. Mature age applicants along with anyone over the age of 16 are able to apply. 

What skills are needed to be an Electrician?

A solid understanding of maths and problem solving capabilities are important.  You’ll need a full grasp of the fundamentals of electricity, electrical standards and safety.  Time management and attention to detail is a large part of the role as working with electricity can sometimes be hazardous. Good communication skills allowing you to explain complex electric issues to people who have no background in the industry is essential.   Physical stamina is also a vital part of the role as you will be doing lots of standing, crouching, bending and lifting heavy items.

The benefits of being an Electrician?

For someone who likes working with their hands and likes solving problems, becoming an electrician is a great decision.  You have the opportunity for massive career growth with jobs in the field expecting to continue major expansion in the future.
