TAFE NSW Energy Training Services Unit

Essential training for entering the energy services workforce

The TAFE NSW Energy Training Services Unit is offering essential training for people who are considering entering the energy services workforce.

Those who are already working within the industry, are also able to maintain their currency and compliance to continue to work, by upskilling or refreshing their knowledge or skills, through our refresher courses.

TAFE NSW has developed a strong relationship with the energy industry, and will continue to provide updates on the requirements to perform safely within this environment.

A regularly updated training calendar will be provided, with links to enrolment on current training available.

Calendar

  • ASP Level 2 – Initial

    Core Training Pre-Requisite Units:

    • UETTDREL16A Working safely near live electrical apparatus (also includes the following mandatory ESI units):
    • HLTAID001 Provide CPR
    • UETTDRRF06B Perform rescue from a LV panel
    • UETTDRRF10B Provide first aid in an ESI environment
    • UEENEEK142A Apply environmental and sustainable procedures in the energy sector
    • UETTDRIS67A Solve problems in energy supply network equipment
  • Class 2B – Underground Services

    This training covers the installation, maintenance, and connection of low voltage underground service lines and associated equipment (between the connection point and the point of supply, i.e. customer premises). Maintenance includes the repair and replacement of service cables, service fuses, and service hardware, as well as the identification and rectification of faults. It also covers insulation, voltage, polarity testing, and phase rotation.

    Units:

    • UETTDRRF11A Testing of connection to LV electrical networks

    Under the NSW Accredited Service Provider (ASP) scheme, only qualified licensed electricians or trade qualified cable jointers are able to be accredited in NSW.

  • Class 2C - Overhead Services

    This training covers the installation, maintenance, and connection of low voltage overhead service lines and associated equipment (between the connection point and the point of supply, i.e. customer premises). Maintenance includes the repair and replacement of service cables, service fuses, and service hardware, as well as the identification and rectification of faults. It also covers insulation, voltage, polarity testing, and phase rotation.

    Units:

    • UETTDRRF11A Testing of connection to LV electrical networks
    • UETTDRRF02B Perform pole top rescue

    Under the NSW Accredited Service Provider (ASP) scheme, only qualified licensed electricians or trade qualified linesmen are able to be accredited in NSW.

  • Class 2D - Metering

    This training covers the installation, set up, and commission of interval metering for the measurement of energy use by consumers, under the choice of supplier arrangement. It encompasses working safely to installation and setup standards, evaluating the integrity of metering wiring and earthing systems, fixing metering, making power and communication connections, setting meter parameters, and the completion of necessary documentation.

    Units:

    • UETTDRRF11A Testing of connection to LV electrical networks

    This course meets the minimum training requirements under the ’Code for the safe installation of electricity meters in NSW’ for meter providers. Only licensed electricians are able to complete any meter installation work in NSW.

  • ASP Annual Refresher Training

    This course meets the minimum mandatory training requirements for all individuals who are required to work on, or near, electricity distribution networks in NSW. To maintain accreditation and authorisations, all ASPs are required to complete refresher training every twelve months.

  • ASP Class 2X

    This class allows non-electrically qualified personnel to be eligible for registration with the ASP Scheme, in accordance with the scheme rules.

  • Electrical Safety Rules

    To become authorised to work on or near an electrical network in NSW, the minimum requirement is the completion of the Electrical Safety Rules (ESR). The ESR provides information relating to the minimal safe working practices for persons working near, or testing on, networks associated with the distribution of electricity.

    The rules assist employees, contractors and ASPs in complying with the requirements of both the:

    • NSW Electricity Supply (Safety and Network Management) Regulation 2014, and
    • Electrical Network Safety Management System.
  • Working safely near live electrical apparatus

    This course covers electrical workers’ compliance with working safely, up to the defined “safe approach distance,” near energised electrical apparatus (including electrical power lines).

    It also includes work functions that may be performed by an electrical worker near live electrical apparatus, such as vegetation control, scaffolding, rigging, painting, and/or any other activity that requires working safely and complying with requirements and established procedures.

  • Working safely near live electrical apparatus as a non-electrical worker

    This course covers non-electrical workers’ compliance with working safely, up to the defined “safe approach distance,” near energised electrical apparatus (including electrical power lines).

    It also includes work functions that may be performed by a non-electrical worker near live electrical apparatus, such as vegetation control, scaffolding, rigging, painting, and/or any other activity that requires working safely and complying with requirements and established procedures.

  • Performing rescue from a live LV panel and provide 1st aid and CPR – Initial and Refresher

    This course includes the performance of rescue procedures from live Low Voltage (LV) apparatus, the provision of first aid in an Electricity Supply Industry (ESI) environment, and the skills and knowledge required to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) in line with the Australian Resuscitation Council (ARC) Guidelines.
