Course content

This course specifies the mandatory requirements of rescue from a live LV panel and how they apply in the context of transmission, distribution and rail work functions.

Skills recognition

The CET Skills Recognition process benefits applicants who have undergone prior learning and recognises competencies obtained outside a formal educational or training environment, gained through life or work experience. Competencies currently held by applicants will be formally assessed against each applicable Unit of Competency and may be recognised regardless of how, when and where they were achieved. Skills Recognition is an assessment process and a cost recovery charge will apply.

CET accepts and provides credit to learners for units of competency and/or modules (unless licensing or regulatory requirements prevent this) where these are evidenced by either AQF certification documentation issued by any other RTO or AQF authorised issuing organisation or an authenticated VET transcript issued by the Registrar.

If you believe you are entitled to Skills Recognition, we encourage you to complete the a skills recognition form, available from our CET Administration team
