UET Transmission Structures
The Transmission Structures project will review the Certificate II in Transmission Structure and Line Assembly and five Units of Competency in the Electricity Supply Industry Transmission, Distribution and Rail Training Package The project will address changes to work methods including incorporating the connection to Distributed Energy Resources (DER), the use of licenced equipment and safety practices that have not been updated/reviewed since 2012.
This work is integral to the large-scale Electricity Interconnector projects, including Project EnergyConnect, the Victoria New South Wales Interconnector (VNI) minor and HumeLink, who require a workforce skilled in the safe operation and installation of transmission structures incorporating DERs.
The ESI Transmission, Distribution and Rail 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 to provide subject matter expertise for the development of Training Package materials.
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 Manager.
The Case for Endorsement and draft materials are due to be submitted by 31 December 2021.
