  • Objectives
    This qualification is currently being reviewed and will not be available for new enrolments in 2009. The University is applying for approval to deliver a similar/updated qualification that should become available in 2009. Further detail about the new qualification will be provided as soon as it becomes available. Please contact the Team Leader for more information. This qualification is part of the Electrotechnology Training Package. It has been identified for students as the beginning step to a career in the Electrotechnology industries. Students will be able to identify and use a range of component materials, tools, equipment, and technologies in the carrying out of work. They will be well equipped with the ability to transfer and apply skills and knowledge to new situations and environments. Charles Darwin University offers this program under VTE in Schools. This course provides introductory training for individuals seeking employment in the electrotechnology industry. Successful completion of these units combined with enthusiasm and a strong work ethic can lead to an apprenticeship. Scholarships in Engineering maybe available on completion of this qualification once matriculation has been completed.
  • Entry requirements
    A pass in Mathematics, English and Science at year 9 level.

    Course Structure

    VET in Schools (VETiS) Program

    When this course or individual units of competency are offered as a VETiS program, it is only offered on a part time basis. The course and unit details listed below are for main stream VET students.

        * When undertaking this course as a VETiS program, the details of units offered, duration and realistic achievement will be provided at the time that the prospective student completes a DEET 'Expression of Interest to undertake a VET program" form.
        * VETiS programs are offered to Secondary School students as a process of enabling informed career choices to be made and to allow for a head start to that career.
        * VETiS programs should be viewed as a training pathway that will lead to a future career. The achievement of that career is unlikely to be achieved while still at Secondary School.

    Employability Skills

    Employability Skills are embedded in the training and assessment of national training package qualifications. Information on the Employability Skills relevant to your qualification can be obtained by visiting this website and keying in the national code for the qualification: http://employabilityskills.training.com.au.

    Skills Recognition

    Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

    RPL is the acknowledgement of a person's skills and knowledge acquired through previous training, work or life experience, which may be used to grant status or credit in a subject regardless of how and where they were attained, including overseas.
    This can include skills from:

        * Previous study excluding courses at another VET/TAFE institution, but including courses at school or college,
        * through adult education classes or training programs at work;
        * Work experience (including both work that is paid and unpaid); and/or
        * Life experience (for example leisure pursuits or voluntary work).

    RPL is a form of assessment. It is used to determine whether a person has acquired, through formal or informal learning, the skills and experience consistent with the stated competency standards that comprise a qualification. RPL is not time referenced, so there are no parameters on how or when the skills are acquired. However, the skills that have been acquired through life experience etc., must be current and must match the elements and performance criteria contained in the individual unit.

    Students seeking RPL need to indicate this on their enrolment form at the time of enrolment.

    See the RPL Guide for Applicants for further information on the RPL application process.


    Credit Transfer or Recognition of Previous Study

    Charles Darwin University as a Registered Training Organisation recognises the Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and Statement of Attainments issued by any other Australian Registered Training Organisation.
    Students are encouraged to submit any requests for credit from previous studies at the time of enrolment, to ensure they are not enrolling in units they may not need to undertake.

    In order to apply for exemption/credit transfer from units completed at another training organisation, you will need to complete an Application for Exemption Form available from any campus, centre, or team, or a copy of the form can be obtained from the web.

    Your completed Application for Exemption form together with attached documentary evidence (certified copy of Qualification/Statement of Attainment) to support your request for exemption/credit transfer should be submitted directly to the University either in person or by mail. Requests without documentary evidence will not be processed and will be returned to students. There are no fees attached to Credit Transfers.
    The Certificate I also confers credit towards a range of Certificate II and Certificate III vocations in the Electrotechnology Industry. Recognition of Prior Learning can be applied for.
