23 August 2017

The Electrical TAC met on 19 July 2017 to progress the transition of the Certificate II Electrotechnology (Career Start) and Certificate III Electrotechnology Electrician qualifications and their units to the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

The drafts are now made available for public consultation and feedback from 24 August to COB 7 September. (Links removed 8 September 2017).

After completing this work, the TAC proposed that 43 of the 113 transitioned units need to be reviewed. These units are considered critical to the qualifications, and need to undergo a comprehensive review to ensure they meet industry needs. The IRC has endorsed this proposal and a detailed Case for Change will be made available for public consultation before being submitted to the AISC for approval. If approved, a project will commence to review the units.

Please note that the final Case for Endorsement for the qualifications and units will not be submitted until the 43 units have been reviewed.

The Electrical TAC met on Tuesday, 13 June in Melbourne to review all feedback received as a result of the public consultation process for this project.

The Electrical TAC is currently reviewing all drafts in more detail and will meet again in Melbourne on Wednesday, 19 July. The objective of the meeting will be to discuss and potentially finalise the Training Package products.

On behalf of the Electrical TAC and the Electrotechnology IRC, AIS would like to thank all stakeholders who provided feedback as part of the consultation process.

23 May 2017

The Electrical Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has been finalised and will begin working on the transition of Certificate II in Electrotechnology (Career Start) and Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician, including the associated 113 units of competency to the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

Please note: The scope of this project does not include a full review of the listed units but simply transition to the Standards for Training Packages 2012.

The Electrical TAC will review and provide feedback on the 113 updated draft units and two qualifications over the next 3 weeks. It was agreed that the updated draft Training Package products (track changes included) will be made available to the wider stakeholder community at the same time, to allow for feedback from industry.

At the end of the consultation period all feedback received from Stakeholders along with the Electrical TAC member’s feedback will be reviewed and considered at the next TAC meeting which is scheduled for Friday, 16 June 2017.

Please provide your feedback by COB Tuesday 13 June, 2017.

This feedback period has closed. If you have any questions about this project, please contact Industry Manager, Jason Lazar: jason.lazar@australianindustrystandards.org.au or 0417 903 566

PLEASE NOTE – The current endorsed units are accessible via the TGA website if you wish to do a direct comparison with the updated drafts.
