UEE Electrotechnology Training Package Project


The Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) has commissioned a review of the UEE Electrotechnology Training Package to enable a range of issues identified by the Electrotechnology Industry Reference Committee (IRC) and related Technical Advisory Committees (TACs) to be addressed. The IRC will provide regular progress updates to the AISC throughout the project. This review must be completed by June 2019.

A delegation from the IRC provided a brief to the AISC at their 14 August meeting. The brief seeks resolution on a number of issues and puts forward a program of work for the 11 Qualifications and 394 units to be reviewed that were identified in the 2018 Industry Skills Forecast.

This project is an extension of the UEE11 Electrotechnology Training Package Transition Project


Deletion of non-used Training Package products

Part of the review will consider the deletion of Qualifications and Units of Competency with zero enrolments for the last three years. Included in the project brief is a list of UEE qualifications and units that have had zero reported enrolments over the last three years.

Review 43 Units of Competency

During the transition process 43 Units of Competency considered critical to the Training Package have been identified for a comprehensive review to ensure they meet industry needs. These Units of Competency (23 core and 20 electives) are across the following qualifications:

  • UEE22011 Certificate II in Electrotechnology (Career Start)
  • UEE30811 Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician

A Case for Change to review these units has been approved by the AISC and the review will be undertaken by the existing UEE Transition Electrical TAC.


Handling of Refrigerants

Two new Units of Competency will be developed to ensure safe handling and recovery of A2 category refrigerants.

Essential Services Operator (ESO)

The transfer the UEE21311 Certificate II in Remote Area Essential Service Qualification from the UEE11 Electrotechnology Training Package to the UEP ESI Generation Training Package will be undertaken as part of the Electrotechnology and ESI Generation Transition projects.

    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.

    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.
