    Stakeholder Forum in Western Australia

    An Electrotechnology Industry stakeholder forum was held in Perth on Thursday, 6 June. The purpose of the forum was to provide an update on the status of the Electrotechnology Training Package which is currently under review, as well as inform WA stakeholders on the next round of public consultation followed by the next steps in the project.

    The forum was attended by the deputy chair of the IRC Mark Burgess and IRC member Carl Copeland. Industry stakeholders included representatives from government agencies, non-government organisations, the private sector and educational institutions.

    AIS Industry Manager for Electrotechnology, Jason Lazar, opened the forum with an overview of the project to date and the approach taken to the transition and review of the Training Package. This was followed by an update from AIS Industry Skills Specialists Paul Humphreys and Andrew Fitisemanu, regarding changes to the Electrician, Electrical fitter, RAC, Industrial Control, and Electronics and Computers components of the project. AIS General Manager, Dan Minton, concluded with the next steps in the process of the Training Package development cycle.

    The forum provided AIS an opportunity for closer engagement with Electrotechnology industry stakeholders and the feedback was positive. AIS looks forward to continuing the conversation with all industry stakeholders.

    INDUSTRY SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS NEEDED

    To support this work Australian Industry Standards (AIS) is calling for expressions of interest from subject matter experts to participate on the following TACs.

    Expressions of interest should be submitted by clicking the button below, providing the following:

    • Individual details: name, job title, employer, address, phone number and email
    • A summary of industry experience: details of employment for the last ten years, qualifications, areas of specific expertise and any other information that supports demonstration of subject matter expertise
    • Details of involvement in, or association with, the training of apprentices/trainees or vocational training more broadly
    • Acknowledgement that participation on the TAC is a voluntary, unpaid appointment and the members are asked to cover their own costs related to participation.

    Each link below provides a list of the Units of Competency and qualifications to be reviewed by each TAC. Proposed deletions are highlighted in yellow. (Links have been removed).

    • TAC 1 – Electrical
    • TAC 2 – Electrical II – IV
    • TAC 3 – Electrical Engineering
    • TAC 4 – Industrial Control
    • TAC 5 – Electronics and Computers
    • TAC 6 – Refrigeration and Air Conditioning

    Please note the transition project Renewable and Sustained Energy has no training products identified for review and TAC 7 will not be reconvened.

    Interested individuals must hold current industry skills and knowledge relevant to Training Package components being reviewed by the TACs they are expressing interest in. This knowledge should be based on current employment, undertaking work covered by the relevant components.

    Participation on TACs is voluntary and TAC members (or their employer) are asked to cover the cost of their participation. Costs may include, but not be limited to: time spent working on the review as well as travel and accommodation to attend meetings, most often conducted in Melbourne. The Commonwealth Government and the AISC considers these costs to be industry’s contribution to maintenance of their industry qualifications and the National training system.

    It is anticipated that each TAC will meet three times during the project:

    • September–October 2018: project initiation and scoping
    • December 2018–January 2019: review and development of components in preparation for public consultation
    • March–April 2019: finalise units and qualifications to be submitted for endorsement

    In addition, AIS will seek advice from TAC members between meetings as required to progress the project.

     

    Background

    This project is an extension of the UEE11 Electrotechnology Training Package Transition Project. The Transition and Review of the Training Package is expected to be completed by December 2019.

    Four Technical Advisory Committees (TACs) have been formed to undertake the review of qualifications and Units of Competency related to the industry sectors below.

    If you have any questions about this project, please contact Industry Manager Jason Lazar.
