While it is highly recommended that you have completed UEE40411 Certifcate IV in Electrical (Instrumentation) prior to doing this skill set, it is possible to enrol in both concurrently and NMT will help you manage the order of completion of subjects so that you can achieve the pre-requisite units before commencing this PID program.

Important information

As it is expected that most students will already be employed in the industry, the course is delivered in a combination of online theory and lab based skills to minimise time spent away from work. The theory and assignment component can be completed online in your own time while the skill component is to be undertaken in our industry relevant lab at our Midland campus over the course of approximately one week. This can be done during the day or on some week day evenings.
