RESTRICTED ELECTRICAL COURSE

The Restricted Electrical Course is a compromise training course which is designed for non-electrical trades that are required to do incidental electrical work for their trade/qualifications.

Every Bizmatrix Restricted Electrical Course, includes two essential subjects:

Work Health and Safety  – UEECD0007-Apply work health and safety regulations, codes and practices in the workplace

and the

Test and Tag qualification – UEERL0003 Conduct in-service safety testing of electrical cord connected equipment and cord assemblies

These form the foundations for being electrically safe and testing for electrical safety, two essential components to be safe and compliant.

The next essential subject is UEERL0004 Disconnect – reconnect electrical equipment connected to low voltage (LV) installation wiring which is a common DR unit for all trades.

Should the participant require to locate and repair faults they continue to UEERL005 Locate and rectify faults in low voltage (LV) electrical equipment using set procedures

And depending on the electrical permit, they may be required to also complete the unit, Attach cords and plugs to electrical equipment for connection to a single phase 230 Volt supply or Single/ multiphase to 1000 V a.c. or 1500 V d.c.

The journey is designed to begin with the basics and progress through to build competence and prove as assessed that you are able to work safely and competently around your call of trade for any incidental electrical work required as per your required Restricted Electrical Licence

All course prices include the Test and Tag subject as it is essential to assist students in learning the basics and correct testing processes for restricted electrical, and is a Bizmatrix mandatory pre-requisite to complete at the same time as the WHS unit and before the DR/LR.

FAQs

Why do I need an Electrical Training Permit before I enrol?
In Queensland, you are required to have an Electrical Licence before doing any electrical work. An “Electrical Training Permit” is basically an Electrical Licence, so you can legally complete the workplace logbook jobs as supervised by a licensed electrical person. It is an offence to complete any electrical work unlicensed.

Where do I get an Electrical Training Permit?
Firstly you need to establish your eligibility and then refer to the checklist of the items you will need for the application and apply directly with Electrical Safety Office.

You can find further information on the Bizmatrix ‘How to apply for an electrical Training Permit’ Blog here.
