Already working in the metal trades and want to go to the next level? Melbourne Polytechnic's post-trade Certificate IV in Engineering - Fabrication will enhance your existing skills and knowledge through three fabrications streams: light, heavy and welding.
The course follows the latest recommendations for energy projects as set out in the AS3598:1:2014 Australian standards for energy audits.
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
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.
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
Ongoing/rolling enrolments throughout the year.
