Electricity is the universal means by which we power our cities and homes, and electronics is the enabling technology that is present in every appliance we use. How we use electricity is a more important concern and the movement towards sustainability has brought about a greater need to find renewable energy resources.
New electrical apprenticeship program
E-Oz (Energy Skills Australia) is running an Australia-wide pilot program available to TAFE SA-trained Electrical apprentices.
Through the Managing Apprentice Progression (MAP) program, apprentices move forward at their own rate, progressing as they acquire necessary skills. This means progression is based on individual competence, rather than being tied to class-wide time frames.
Also, industry mentors provide support services tailored to each apprentice's learning needs, boosting their capacity to complete their training program.
If you're thinking of undertaking an electrical apprenticeship with TAFE SA, you can get involved with the MAP program, choosing TAFE SA as your preferred provider. You will need to complete a Readiness Assessment, which is a measure of basic language, literacy and numeracy skills.
