Is this course suitable for Queensland?
Testing and Tagging in Queensland. This online course is a nationally accredited Test & Tag certificate issued by www.time.net.au (RTO No.40058) and is suitable for any state in Australia for someone wishing to test and tag professionally.
However, in Queensland, to carry out this work as a business as well as completing the course you must also hold a Queensland electrical contractor licence that permits this type of work.
Also note that in Queensland replacing plug tops is considered electrical work and licence requirements apply. You should contact the Electrical Safety Office before commencing this course.
For more information about Queensland requirements, visit electricalsafety.qld.gov.au or call 1300 362 128.
How are the assessments done?
There are 3 assessments the first two are theory based while the other is practical. The two theory based assessments are an open book multi-choice answer format on word documents. The practical assessment is done over Skype as the student needs to demonstrate his knowledge and use of a PAT tester.
There is a very comprehensive check list of what to film and all the questions that will be asked. The trainer is always available for additional training before assessments but is not usually needed.
I don’t have access to a webcam?
You don’t need a webcam straight away to start the course, it’s only necessary for the final assessment. You can pick up a webcam rather cheaply (around $10) online or from your local electrical store, so it’s an easy fix.
