New Training Package - Energy Utilities Industry Skills Council Ltd
Date: 01 June 2015
Energy Utilities Industry Skills Council Ltd trading as EE-Oz Training Standards is the Australian Government declared Industry Skills Council for the ElectroComms and EnergyUtilities industries.
EE-Oz Training Standards is the body responsible for developing and maintaining the National Qualifications within the National Training Packages under its coverage. These include the Electrotechnology Training Packages.
All Training Packages are reviewed periodically. The previous unit of competency ?UEENEEP008B Conduct in-service safety testing of electrical cord connected equipment and cord assemblies? has been be replaced with a new version of the unit competency ?UEENEEP026A Conduct in-service safety testing of electrical cord connected equipment and cord assemblies? from the new Training Package UEE11. This took effect as from the 15th March 2013 making the old unit UEENEEP008B obsolete.
What is the difference between the two units? The new unit has a prerequisite unit of competency ?UEENEEE101A Apply Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, Codes and Practices in the workplace?.
What does this mean to you? Now that the new unit has been introduced, instead of just attending a one day test and tag course you will be required to complete the unit of competency UEENEEE101A as well. We provide this extra WHS unit online which takes around 2 to 3 hours to complete.
Please be aware that any training company as from 15th March 2013 that is not delivering this extra unit for test and tag training is not providing Nationally Recognised Training and as such you may not be fully qualified.
