Intakes occur all year, so whether you are looking for a career change, finishing year 12 or just finished an awesome gap year travelling, you can start this 12-week course any time of year.

The ‘Bright Spark’ program allows you to demonstrate everything you’ve learned through your pre-app and apply it in a real life scenario … before you go on site.

You will also learn additional, highly sought-after practical skills like:

  • Reading plans and marking out the electrical installation
  • Identifying and ordering products for the job
  • Installation and terminate electrical equipment
  • Installing cable tray
  • Running catenary wire
  • Wiring and fitting off socket outlets (power points) and light switches
  • Completing quality tests on your installation

You will work through each stage of the project including planning, worksite preparation, roughing in, fitting off and QA testing … all under supervision of course!

At the end of the ‘Bright Spark’ program, you will boost your ‘on the job skills’ and have what employers are looking for!
