UEE Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology - Electrical
The Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology – Electrical project is to review this qualification and develop five new Units of Competency in the Electrotechnology Training Package to ensure they reflect the intent of this qualification and meet the needs of learners.
During the transition of UEE11 to the 2012 Standards for Training Packages additional assessment conditions were added to units linked to electrical licencing to ensure the skills and knowledge were applied in the workplace. This addition was very important to meet industry’s expectations for those units. Eight of those units appear in the core of UEE62120 Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology. This qualification is a direct entry Advanced Diploma intended for candidates that will never work as electricians, nor acquire an Electrician’s Licence. Few of these candidates will have the opportunity during their training to apply the skills and knowledge in an actual workplace, which is a requirement of the assessment conditions.
This project will create new replacement units covering higher level theoretical concepts that will be more appropriate for entry level Electrical Engineering.
Without the proposed new units, the qualification is no longer viable for delivery. Closely aligning core units to the vocational destinations of graduates will solve the current issue, whilst also improving outcomes for both graduates and their future employers.
The Electrotechnology Industry Reference Committee (IRC) will have oversight of this project, which will be facilitated by Australian Industry Standards (AIS) in consultation with industry stakeholders. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be formed for this project.
If you have any questions about this project, or are a subject matter expert and would like to be considered for the TAC for this project, please contact the Industry Skills Specialist.
The Case for Endorsement and draft materials are due to be submitted by May 2022.

Work on this project has commenced and the Electrotechnology IRC is forming a TAC.
Your industry expertise and insight is welcome to help review and develop Training Package materials to:
The Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology – Electrical project will review one qualification and develop five new Units of Competency to better reflect the intent of qualification and needs of its target audience. A number of current core units are aligned to the acquisition of occupational licences and include a requirement for evidence to be gathered in authentic workplace settings which is inappropriate given the qualification is primarily delivered in institutional settings. The project will develop replacement units covering higher level theoretical concepts, which will be more appropriate for the vocational destinations of graduates.
