The Readiness Assessment (RA) enables you to assess your ability before entering into an Electrical Apprenticeship. The course is suitable for those who are interested in applying for an Apprenticeship within the Electrical Industry; including young school leavers wanting to enter into the Electrical Industry.

The RA is delivered through our partnership with Energy Skills Australia, via the EnergySpace Learning Management System.

The Readiness Assessment (RA) tool is designed to assist aspiring electrical apprentices understand how well prepared they are (in terms of their literacy and numeracy skills) for the electrical trade program. Learners, teachers and employers can quickly see where more work is required to give an apprentice the greatest chance of success in their training program. The RA also offers support pathways appropriate for the individual's skill profile.

The Readiness Assessment covers 15 areas of numeracy and literacy; the Literacy section covers Reading and Writing skills at Australian Core Skill Framework (ACSF) level 3, the level recommended to give electrical apprentices the best chance of progressing through the qualification; the Numeracy section is broken into the fifteen subtopics, which underpin the first two years of the electrical trade program. The ACSF standard of the questions range from; ACSF 1 (5 questions), ACSF 2 (13 questions), ACSF 3 (10 questions), and ACSF 4 (22 questions).

Note: Learners who are enrolled in the Certificate II in Electrotechnology, (Career Start) or Pre-Apprenticeship program, undertake the Readiness Assessment as part of the Certificate II program.
