The Electrical Safety Act states the requirements for an Electrical Mechanic Licence. QET assists those people that have an electrical fitter's licence and are seeking an electrical mechanic licence.

First, you need to apply for your electrical mechanic licence with this application form along with a current CPR Certificate (current means less than 1 year)

The Electrical Licensing Dept will send you a Training Permit to allow you to perform electrical mechanic work under supervision.

You now need to gain experience in electrical mechanic work (i.e. installing wiring systems, testing electrical installations) to gain on-job experience in working as an electrical mechanic. At the same time, QET offers the following course for your off-job training.

UEE30811 Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician.

This course requires you to demonstrate all competencies in working as an electrical mechanic. The assessment for this course falls across two days where you will be required to demonstrate competence both in theoretical exams and practical exams.

Once both the on-job and off-job training is completed, a Form 31 and a Completion Statement, signed by your employer, yourself, and QET, is forwarded to the Electrical Licensing Dept for the issue of your electrical Mechanic licence.

FURTHER INFORMATION including costs etc.

Please email Chris at and QET will provide you a letter of offer for the training. If you wish to undertake this training, we will need to verify that you are an electrical fitter and that you have applied for your electrical mechanic training permit. Please include a scanned copy of your electrical fitter licence and Training Permit. If you cannot scan, either just take a photo and attach to an email, or you will have to send a copy to me by post.
