VCE VET Electrical Industry

The VCE VET Electrical Industry program is drawn from a national training package and from Victorian accredited curriculum, and offers students prevocational training in the electrical industry with portable qualifications which are recognised throughout Australia. The VCE VET Electrical Industry program is designed to give students the opportunity to gain experience across a number of electrical trades including electrical, electronics, refrigeration and mechanical engineering.

The VCE VET Electrical Industry program does not offer scored assessment.

For VCE VET program changes that have been approved for 2022 implementation, please see VCE VET program changes for 2022 and 2022 VCE VET program structures (Updated 15 June 2022). This document will be updated progressively as further programs are approved, and detailed changes will be published at a later date on the respective program pages.

Construction induction card

The Certificate II in Electrotechnology (Pre-vocational) and the Certificate II in Electrotechnology (Career Start) include the unit CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry with an allocation of 6 hours. This unit is recognised by Work Safe Victoria for the registration of construction workers for work health and safety induction.

Any person on a construction site needs a construction induction card. This includes all work experience or structured workplace learning students. Construction induction cards issued in other states and territories are recognised in Victoria. The major requirement is that at the time of the training the student would normally have resided in the state or territory of issue.

Students wishing to undertake the construction induction card in preparation for work experience or in conjunction with another qualification where CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry is not listed in the qualification structure should be enrolled on the VASS in the Construction Induction Card course (course code: CICARD).
