How do I become an electrician? (electrical apprenticeships).

An electrical trade apprenticeship requires 4 years of TAFE combined with on-the-job training.

All modules for the Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician (UEE30807) must be completed (with a pass or higher). Also required is at least 12 months relevant electrical wiring installation work experience in residential, commercial and/or industrial situations requiring knowledge and a sound understanding of the AS/NZS 3000:2007.
