Why an electrical apprenticeship?

There are plenty of reasons why an electrical apprenticeship in Victoria is a great idea

  • Career Opportunities: from being “on the tools” at a trade level there is the chance to move into management roles, engineering roles and even owning your own business. There are a number of industry sectors that require electrical trades experience including rail, building and construction, mining, manufacturing and energy supply.
  • In-demand skills: good people with good skills are always in demand, and electricians are part of that group. With the current skills shortages, there will be a need for electrical skills across industries as technology evolves.
  • International work: an electrical apprenticeship can also open doors internationally. With top class training in Australia, you will have the opportunity to work overseas in your chosen trade.
  • Earn while you learn: what is possibly the most attractive reason for undertaking an apprenticeship is the capacity to earn a wage while studying, and working on-the-job, towards your chosen qualification.
