Do I need to complete Work Experience to complete this qualification?

While Electro Group recommends work experience as part of the Certificate II in Electrotechnology, work experience is not mandatory and does not form part of Electro Group’s training or assessment strategies for VETiS students. Where individual schools choose to offer work experience as part of its broader curricular activities, the school is responsible for monitoring and management of the work experience.

How is the qualification delivered?

Electro Group delivers this qualification through third party arrangements with schools where EGT has verified competency of trainers, resources, and the school’s capacity to carry out such training/assessment to industry and training package standards/requirements. In instances where the schools do not have the capacity to provide training/assessment, training is provided by EGT trainers either at EGT premises or at a trade training centre. Attendance is generally 1 full day per week in agreement with the school and may require some school holiday attendance. Where third party arrangements are in place all students are provided with information at induction and it is made clear Electro Group are the RTO and the school is the third party.
