This is an approved Gas Work Licence – Trade test which is over five (5) days. The Trade test is required for any person who may of held a Gas Work Licence that has expired more than 12 months.
Or has the current and required Certificate III in gas fitting units, that has not applied for the Gas Work Licence ( interim ), more than 12 months from the Certificate Date.
The trade test is not a training course, it is a challenge and competency test to confirm your knowledge and skills. The course involves some revision on Days 1 and Days 2 of the five days, and the applicants will have access to some online revision if they desire.
The trade tests focus on two standards, AS/NZS5601.1.2013 and AS/NZS1596. On registration, the applicants will receive a free copy of each standard. It is expected the participant carry out their own study/revision prior to the trade test five day face to face.
We must stress, this is not a training course, it is a Trade test to confirm the reinstatement or activation of a Gas Work Licence or Gas Work Licence ( Interim) .
As per the instructions from the Chief Gas Inspector, the participants must pass the course 100% and should this not be achieved, the participant will not be allowed to retake the test.
What happens if you do not pass the trade test? The participant will be required to reattend and complete the Certificate III in gas fitting and the required certificate IV gas units.
It is important to continue to stay on top of industry changes whilst building your knowledge further in the gas industry. The training program will work to give you a new understanding of gas practices.
On applications- and before registration- Each applicant will be required to complete an interview with our Lead Educator to determine eligibility to attend and successfully complete the trade test.
At this interview, we will determine your current experience and fully explain the task ahead.
