    Hi Everybody

     

    we are new members - arriving in Adelaide next month.:D

     

    We have our permenant visas but now need to go through the process again for ARTC/TRADE LICENCE

     

    My husband is an electrician and obtained a certificate for 'general electrician' needed for application our visas but now have to submit ARTC. he works on general construction as an installation electrician -JIB general contracting stuff, and also testing and inspection.

     

    in the process of submitting the application for Australian Recognised Trade Certificate to enable him to get a licence and start work asap - can anyone help with the exact classification for SA tra- is it Electrical fitter or electrical mechanic?

     

    thank you if you can help.

    electrical mechanic is aimed at the installation side of things and electrical fitter at maintenance

    this is what i've once got to the same question:

     

     

    "Electrical mechanic licence is an open electrical work licence.

     

    An electrical mechanic can perform all electrical work.

     

    Examples:

     

    install or change an overhead electrical line

    install electrical wiring

    repair any electrical equipment

    Refer to Section 34 of the Electrical Safety Regulation 2002 (PDF, 801 KB) for more information on eligibility requirements for an electrical mechanic licence.

     

     

     

    Electrical fitter licence allows you to perform electrical equipment work.

     

    Examples:

     

    rewinding and repairing an electric motor

    building and assembling a switchboard

    Refer to Section 36 of the Electrical Safety Regulation 2002 (PDF, 801 KB) for eligibility requirements for an electrical fitter licence.

     

     

    taken straight from the electrical safety office web site qld

     

     

    ps link for thoose wishing to read more

     

     

    http://www.dir.qld.gov.au/electrical...ences/classes/ " (please note that it's for qld, apparently sa is not as strict ?!?!?)

     

     

    we are not there just yet but soon we'll have to look into this too :nah:

    Hi,

     

    My husband in the same boat. He phoned TRA and the advise he got was to put both titles on the application. In fact they told him to put on as many 'titles' as he thought described what he does. He went with Electrical Mechanic and Electrical Fitter.

     

    Hope this helps
