Disconnect-Reconnect appliances connected to low voltage installation wiring course details

Course overview

This course will provide learners with the skills and knowledge required to disconnect and reconnect appliances connected to low voltage installation wiring. This work may be incidental to or a primary and regular function of work related to a principle work function.

The course addresses composite appliances (air conditioners), water heaters and motors. It includes working safely, identifying supply arrangements, following isolation procedures, selecting and using testing and measuring devices, terminating and connecting cables and conductors, safely testing and reporting.

This course excludes disconnecting or reconnecting circuits at a switchboard or to general electrical accessories (including switches, socket outlets, circuit protective devices etc); or installation of or alteration to any part of the fixed electrical wiring system (defined as electrical installing work).

This course does not cover rectifying faults.

Work associated with this unit is undertaken within the scope of:

  • AS/NZS4836: 2001 Safe working on low voltage electrical installations
  • local licensing requirements (Energy Safe Victoria)

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisite units for this unit of competency.

Learners who wish to complete this course and seek license in this area are advised to make application to Energy Safe Victoria prior to enrolling.

It is also recommended that learners are able to demonstrate language, literacy and numeracy skills equivalent to Level 3 of the Australian Core Skills Framework (ACSF).

All new entrants to this unit will be required to undergo a pre assessment of their language, literacy and numeracy designed to identify their level of ability against the ACSF and to perform complex calculations.

Course structure

This course is delivered over a seven (7) day period. The seven (7) days are broken into two blocks:

  • first block is four (4) days
  • second block is three (3) days

Approximately five (5) days after successful completion of the course, eligible learners may undertake an external practical exam assessed by Energy Safe Victoria (ESV) assessors to obtain their restricted electrical licence (REL Class 2).

Course duration

The program is 60 hours in duration.

The three course units will be delivered concurrently to learners. Learners enrol in the units that match their restricted electrical licence classification requirement; they may enrol in either one or two units.
