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.
The expected submission of the Case for Endorsement will be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) by 31 August 2020.VIEW 2019 IRC SKILLS FORECAST
The ESI Generation 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.
Regular project updates will be posted on this page throughout the life of the project.
If you have any questions about this project, please contact Industry Manager Jason Lazar.
