This course has primarily been developed to ensure that persons who have been assessed by Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) and have been issued with an Australian Recognised Trade Certificate (ARTC) in the trade of Electrical Mechanic are provided with the skills and knowledge to be issued with an unrestricted Western Australian Electrician Licence.

Participants in this qualification are typically migrants seeking to apply for Western Australian Electrician's Licence in order to gain entry into the Western Australian Electrotechnology Industry.
