Recent changes in the industry, including the move to renewable energy transmission and distribution, the increased automation of power systems, cyber security threats on the infrastructure, and increased regulatory and safety requirements has led to greater skill demand within the industry.
The ESI Transmission Distribution and Rail Sector Industry Reference Committee (IRC) proposed to review seven industry qualifications and associated Units of Competency to update the skills and knowledge requirements to support the operations, management and systems support of the Electricity Supply, Transmission and Distribution. The revised skills standards will align with current industry practice and technologies, including renewable energy generation.VIEW 2019 IRC SKILLS FORECAST
