Efficient use of energy is now a priority for businesses and homes across Australia. Become an energy efficiency expert with our Certificate IV in Energy Management and Control.
This nationally-accredited qualification is for licenced electricians who wish to expand their skillset. In this course, you will gain the skills and knowledge you need to complete metered audits at a sub-circuit level, interpret data, and provide comprehensive reports that recommend energy efficient solutions such as:
- Design of smart systems
- Retrofitting of existing infrastructure
- More efficient practices with existing systems
Upon completion of the Certificate IV in Energy Management and Control, you will be able to:
- Install and interrogate energy monitoring devices
- Develop and deliver a professional Energy Audit
- Operate wireless technology
- Understand energy efficiency in buildings
- Understand energy management
The course follows recommendations for energy projects as set out in the AS3598:1:2014 Australian standards for energy audits.
Developed with industry
Melbourne Polytechnic developed this program with Energy Skills Australia, an organisation made up of key industry bodies in the electrotechnology and energy utilities industries. This not-for-profit organisation ensures Australia’s energy industry has a highly-skilled and forward-thinking workforce.
At the end of this course, you will become a skilled energy efficient technician able to:
- provide advice on energy efficiency
- install new energy efficiency systems
- rectify existing works
To participate in this training program, the candidate must hold an Unrestricted Electrician’s Licence or equivalent issued in an Australian State or Territory (e.g. A Grade Victorian Electricians). This is due to Victorian Electrical Licence restrictions. As this course includes ERAC requirements for an electrician’s licence, Energy Safe Victoria (ESV) will not accept a direct entry model into this training program.
This course is also available as direct entry at $1450.
The student tuition fees as published are correct at time of publication and subject to change given individual circumstances at enrolment. All enrolments excluding RPL/RCC and Higher Education incur an annual Amenities fee with a maximum cap of $250
Assessment MethodsIn general, each unit is assessed by passing a knowledge based test and undertaking two skill based projects.
Entrance RequirementsTo participate in this training program the candidate must hold an Unrestricted Electricians Licence or equivalent issued in an Australian State or Territory (e.g. A Grade Victorian Electricians) – This is due to Victorian Electrical Licence restrictions and this course including ERAC requirements for an ‘Electrician’s licence’ – Energy Safe Victoria (ESV) will not accept a direct entry model into this training program
Career PathwaysParticipants will become skilled technicians who will be able to provide advice on energy efficiency as well as able to perform installation of new systems and rectification of existing works as a single solution.
