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.

Deliverables

Review and develop:

  • UEP40618 – Certificate IV in Large Scale Wind Generation – Electrical
  • 13 Units of Competency

 

Timeline

The Case for Endorsement is expected to be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee by 30 October 2020.

 

How to get involved

A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be formed to provide expertise for this work. If you are a subject matter expert and would like to be considered for the TAC please contact the Industry Manager.

Stakeholder feedback on draft training materials will be sought as part of the development phase of work.
