Board Developed VET Course (ATAR)


This course enables career pathways in the electrotechnology industry.

The electrotechnology industry includes the design, maintenance, installation and repair for all electrical and electronic equipment. The technology stretches across many sectors, including mining, manufacturing, communications, construction, renewables, domestic, commercial and industrial refrigeration and air-conditioning. The electrical services industry (a subsector within electrotechnology) involves electrical wiring or fittings in buildings and other construction projects, and repair and maintenance of existing electrical equipment and fixtures.

The industry is transitioning towards decarbonisation and there is a growing interest in renewable technologies and solar installations. Rail infrastructure projects have created further opportunities for the electrotechnology sector, with electricians playing an important role in rail signalling.

Computer and communication systems form an integral part of smart and automated systems and platforms used in all industries. The industry is looking at a 7% employment growth by 2026.
