The NECA Pre-Selection assessment is highly regarded by employers in the industry as it provides an assessment from an electrical standpoint. A successful result in the assessment will enhance your entry prospects into an electrical apprenticeship.

Once you successfully undertake the assessment you can provide potential employers with evidence that you have the language, literacy and numeracy skills to successfully complete an electrical apprenticeship, particularly the off-the-job or TAFE component of the apprenticeship.

For more than 30 years the National Electrical and Communication Association (NECA) on behalf of the electrical contracting industry, has been conducting a pre-selection assessment for students interested in an electrical career.

NECA Victoria, in conjunction with NECA Education & Careers, will deliver the NECA Pre-Selection between on 7-8 October 2016.

The results of the Pre-Selection are circulated to prospective employers in approximately October each year by NECA (provided of course that you have given approval for this on the NECA Education & Careers privacy/consent form).

These prospective employers will make contact directly with those candidates they wish to interview.

There are no guarantees that you will be invited to an interview, however, it is the beast means to get your personal details in front of many hiring companies in one hit.


Open Day Sunday 19 August – $5pp
