This course is the prerequisite for eligibility of the Energy Safe Victoria Electrical Fitter's Licence and provides the background knowledge and skills required for successful work in the electrical manufacturing industry.

As a licensed electrical fitter, you will be able to work in the commercial and industrial switchboard and equipment manufacturing sector.

You will also have the responsibility for the maintenance and commissioning of electrical switchboards, machinery and specified equipment.


Course structure

To successfully achieve this qualification, students must complete a series of units and demonstrate competence in the skills involved.

Upon completion of these units, students will have achieved the core competencies required.

Additional elective competencies must also be completed, with these to be determined in negotiation between the apprentice and their employer.

Completion of the core and elective competencies will qualify students for the UEE33011 Certificate III in Electrical Fitting.

When comparing the UEE33011 Certificate III in Electrical Fitting to UEE30811 Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician, it has 16 units that are common to both qualifications and eight specific units to the trade of Electrical Fitting.
