UEP Wind Power Generation

Project scope

A significant amount of new power generation infrastructure development is currently underway, comprised mainly of wind, solar, and gas generation plants.

 

New power generation plants will require different operational, management and system maintenance skills than the current workforce.  A lack of national focus towards providing the necessary skills for the growing number of field operations roles required by Australia’s power generation sector currently drives a higher prevalence of discrete site and technology specific training being delivered by original equipment manufacturers (OEM), and therefore reduces broad skills transferability across the electricity supply generation industry.

 

The ESI Generation Industry Reference Committee (IRC) proposed to review and update the Certificate IV in Large Scale Wind Generation – Electrical and 13 associated Units of Competency to reflect new technologies and work practices.

FINAL DRAFT CASE FOR ENDORSEMENT

 

The draft Training Package materials have undergone independent edit and quality assurance and have been updated to address three distinct areas. First the Certificate II in Remote Area Essential Service qualification has been updated to include electives regarding the maintenance of energy generation equipment. This will enable vocational pathways and employment opportunities for remote area communities. Second, six existing qualifications have been amalgamated into a Certificate III, IV and Diploma in ESI Generation, with streams for Operations and System Operations. Third, the Certificate IV in Large Scale Wind Generation – Electrical qualification and 13 associated Units of Competency have been reviewed and updated to align with new technologies and current work and safety practices.
