UEE Electricity Meters

Project scope

 

The Electricity Meters project will review and update one Unit of Competency and develop one new Skill Set in the Electrotechnology Training Package to ensure they reflect current technologies, industry requirements and work practices.

 

The unit will be updated to address legislative requirements and support installation of advanced digital (smart) meters, and the replacement of older-style basic or accumulation meters (currently being phased out) with digital meters.

 

The Skill Set will couple the revised unit with UETTDRRF06 Perform rescue from a live LV panel, which is an essential safety requirement when working on electricity meters. The ESI Transmission, Distribution and Rail Industry Reference Committee (IRC) are currently reviewing this unit.

 

VIEW CASE FOR CHANGE

 

The Electrotechnology 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.

TAC ESTABLISHED

 

5 OCTOBER 2021

 

The Electrotechnology Industry Reference Committee has established a Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) for this project.

 

Comprising of six subject matter experts from Industry, RTOs, and Peak Bodies, the TAC has been tasked with:

  • Providing specialist industry subject-matter knowledge for the review and update of one Unit of Competency and the development of one new Skill Set ensure they reflect current technologies, legislative requirements and industry work practices.
  • Validating the technical content of the Training Package products
  • Identifying relevant qualitative and quantitative data sources to inform the development of draft materials
  • Reviewing feedback from stakeholders through public consultations
  • Assisting in identifying and engaging broader industry networks to participate in consultation and/or validation activities during the duration of the project
  • Offering advice and guidance to assist in informing the direction of the project throughout its duration
  • Making recommendations on the developed Training Package materials to the relevant IRC, which has the final decision-making authority.

 

The first meeting of the TAC is scheduled for 18 October 2021.
