AGA Apprenticeships Plus RTO 3829
VET in schools multiplies opportunities for students. They enable students to complete a nationally recognised vocational qualification as well as contribute towards their VCE or VCAL Certificate. Classroom learning is combined with structured hands-on training and practice in industry. The program is delivered at Somerville Secondary College or Chisholm Institute of TAFE. The program is designed to provide training, practical skills and studies for students interested in investigating a career as an Electrician. The training is project-based and gives hands on experience in the workshop and an introduction to careers in Electrotechnology. The program has a focus on electical skills for the first year students. The second year of the program covers all theory needed for students to progress into an electrical apprenticeship or an career in the electrotechnology industry.
The training is project based and gives hands on experience in the workshop and an introduction to the various careers available in electrotechnology, these include electrical, electronics, renewable energy and telecommunications.
Students who complete both years of of the UEE2201 Certificate II in Electrotechnology (career start) will have completed a nationally recognised pre-vocational qualification for careers in this industry. This may reduce future training in electrotechnology by up to 6 months.
