All Training Courses > Restricted Electrical Courses > Restricted Electrical Course

Introduction

The Restricted Electrical Course is for those wanting to complete minor electrical work (50 VAC – 1000 VAC)  in line with their current trade.

That means, disconnect and reconnect, locate and rectify, fault find or test and tag electrical appliances used for your current trade.

The training program combines both theoretical learnings with practical training within a simulated environment.

There are so many unit combinations when it comes to completing the Restricted Electrical Course. Which means that the timeframe varies.

However, in general, you can expect the learning program to last between 6 and 10 days.

The first half of the training will be made up of online theory. Then once completed, you will be required to complete on-site training at our facility.

Once this part of the training is complete, and students have passed the assessment, they will be eligible to complete an application with the ESO in order to obtain the Restricted Electrical License.  

Note: This course is NOT for those wanting to complete a path to become an electrician.
