UEE Renewables

Project scope

 

The Renewables project will review eight qualifications and fifty Units of Competency in the Electrotechnology Training Package. During transition to the 2012 Standards for Training Packages it was identified that renewable energy qualifications were no longer fit for purpose. The review will update these qualifications and related units to reflect current technologies, industry practices, regulations, and accreditation.

 

Renewable systems, technology and industry practices have evolved significantly since these qualifications were last reviewed. Solar installation has been steadily growing with currently over two and a half million installations in Australia, which is anticipated to double by the mid-2020s.

 

Renewable energy developers and installers are facing challenges in recruiting skilled and experienced workers. To address this, Training Package materials will be updated to enable the Electrotechnology workforce to develop the necessary skills for the installation and maintenance of renewable energy technologies used by domestic and commercial customers.

 

VIEW CASE FOR CHANGE

 

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.
