Please email Chris at chris@qet.edu.au and QET will provide you a letter of offer for the training. If you wish to undertake UEENEEG197A, we will need to verify that you are an electrical mechanic so please include a scanned copy of your electrical mechanic licence. If you cannot scan, full name and licence number will do for now, I can check your details on the Licensing database. However, I will still need to sight your licence before undertaking the assessment.
