Duration

UEE40411 Certificate IV in Electrical – Students have a maximum of 1 year to complete this instrumentation course from the date of enrollment. The assessments must be completed in class under the supervision of the trainer. The instrumentation course has an RPL component and fieldwork component which depends on the student’s experience and exposure to the type of work related to the competency. Regardless of the amount of instrumentation experience students must complete a challenge test to be granted an instrumentation RPL for that particular unit. Proof of experience should be provided and will be reference checked by the Trainer. Refer to the customised instrumentation RPL kit provided by your trainer for further information. Further extension may be granted by the trainer on request. Some students may require longer timeframes if they do not have experience or exposure to instrumentation work. Students are welcome to sit in the forthcoming classes at no additional fees to seek further assistance from the trainer to finish the remainder of Practical Assessment and instrumentation course work. For the schedule of forthcoming classes speak to the trainer.

Delivery of competencies

The units are delivered via face to face delivery mode. The core units and the elective units are arranged in topics and are completed throughout the online and face to face delivery and via the learner’s self-paced completion of project assessment work.

The instrumentation course is organized into the following themes

  • Theory lectures
  • Assessment
  • Internet research
  • Observation
  • Face to face
  • Practical tasks
  • Group work
  • Activities in simulated work environment (as per Training Package Requirements)

Each student’s achievement of each unit of competency within the qualification is assessed by their completion of written, practical tests, assignments and the observation of the competency in practical projects, in varying contexts on a number of occasions.

Recognition of Prior Learning

RPL Fees – $495/unit (non-refundable). The competencies in this qualification may be attained through the process of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). RPL takes into consideration the candidates’ previous instrumentation training, work, and life experience. AUSINET trainer/assessor will provide candidates with an RPL Application form at enrolment, to assist the candidate in determining if RPL is an appropriate pathway to gain the qualification. If appropriate, candidates will be provided with an RPL Self-Assessment Guide and instructions on how to prepare a portfolio of evidence. The RPL documentation is available on request.

RPL also includes an open book challenge test which has to be completed at Ausinet premises under the supervision of a trainer. A booking with Ausinet admin is essential to organise this test.
