UEE Electrical Engineering and Industrial Control

Project scope

The UEE30811 Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician qualification has more enrolments than any other qualification in the UEE11 Electrotechnology Training Package. It is considered the single most critical qualification in the industry. During the Transition Project, the AISC approved a Case for Change, developed by the Electrotechnology IRC, to review 43 core and elective Units of Competency in the qualification. However, at an IRC meeting on 14 March 2018, members agreed that the amount of work involved is greater than originally anticipated, and that it could not be achieved by the project end date 30 June 2018

 

Skills Forecast 2018

 

Deliverables

The Electrical Engineering and Industrial Control TAC has been assigned to review the following:

  • Three qualifications
  • 88 Units of Competency

 

Timeline

The Case for Endorsement is expected to be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee by 18 May 2020.
