Entry Requirements

To receive all eleven units of competency candidates must hold a current electrical workers license or equivalent. Evidence of the required prerequisite will need to be provided before enrolment. This can be in the form of an unrestricted electrical workers license or a Certificate III in Electro-technology.

There are five units that do not have pre-requisites. See below for the full list of Units of Competency, including which units require fulfilment of pre-requisites.

Learning Outcomes

Depending on the pre-requisites, on successful completion of the course, candidates will be issued with either:

  • a Statement of Attainment with the five units of competency listed (where no pre-requisites are required), or
  • a Statement of Attainment with all eleven units of competency (if pre-requisites have been met)

Please note: Attending this course does not qualify you as a High Voltage Operator. You will learn the theory to be one, but authorisation belongs with the company.

More Information

The High Voltage Guidelines, detailing training requirements, can be accessed here.

Our nationally recognised High Voltage Switching Operations course is intended for electrical workers and engineers who work with HV switchgear in industrial facilities and networks.

Assessments will be conducted during some modules and at the end of each day. This means that the assessment is throughout the course. Assessments will include simulation exercises, structured assessment activities, written questions, work activities in a simulated workplace, activity sheets, projects and real work activities at the workplace.

Refresher

AVELING provides a two-day High Voltage Switching Operations Refresher course. There is no specified timeframe to complete the refresher and your company may give you guidance on when to enrol. However, it is commonly accepted that a refresher is beneficial every two years.
