UEE33020 – Certificate III in Electrical Fitting DARWIN

UEE33020 – Certificate III in Electrical Fitting DARWIN



This qualification provides competencies to manufacture, fit, assemble, erect, operate, test, fault find, alter and repair electrical equipment and includes electrical wiring work only if that work is associated with assembling, maintaining, terminating or altering the wiring between electrical components within a plant or machinery. An electrical fitter is not authorised to install any electrical wiring systems within an electrical installation as prescribed by definitions contained in AS/NZS 3000 Electrical installations (known as the Australian/New Zealand Wiring Rules).

Electrical equipment means any appliance, article, accessory, wire, fitting, cable, conduit or apparatus that generates, uses, conveys or controls (or that is intended to generate, use, convey or control) electricity above extra-low voltage (ELV).

The skills and knowledge described in this qualification may require a licence or permit to practice in the workplace where work is carried out on electrical installations which are designed to operate at voltages greater than 50 volt (V) alternating current (a.c.) or 120 V direct current (d.c.).

Competency development activities in this qualification may be subject to regulations directly related to licensing. Where a licence or permit to practice is not held, a relevant contract of training through an Australian Apprenticeship may be required.

Licensing, legislative and regulatory requirements that apply to this qualification can vary between states and territories. Some jurisdictions require that the qualification is completed as an apprenticeship to obtain an Electrical Occupational License. Relevant information must be sourced prior to commencing the qualification. Where required for Licencing, the certification documentation issued must indicate if the qualification was completed as an apprenticeship or Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) pathway.


There is funding available for this course.


1-3 Years*


Ongoing, enrol and start anytime.


Theory to be completed online and practical to be completed in class.

  • Basic Computer Literacy
  • Students must demonstrate an appropriate level of language, literacy and numeracy skills and knowledge to undertake a course at this level.
  • Education – Successful completion of Year 9 or 10 or its equivalent.
  • Candidates must be reasonably fit as practical work involves a considerable amount of physical activity.  A wheelchair user or someone with significant physical disabilities simply may not be able to fulfil the requirement of Certificate II in Electrotechnology.

All essential books are provided by Ausinet for this course.


You will need to bring :

  • A wired headset or headphones
  • A notepad
  • A pen

You will also need to have an email address, a laptop and a reliable internet connection in order to complete the online theory part of the course. Enclosed footwear must be worn at all times when you are on the premises.


You will receive a Nationally Recognised Certificate for Certificate III in Electrical Fitting

Ausinet, as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), recognises the Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by any other Australian RTO. You are encouraged to submit requests for credit from previous studies when enrolling to ensure that you are not enrolling in units you may not need to undertake. If you have completed units at other RTO and you think they may count towards the award requirements of the course you are enrolled in at Ausinet, submit an official copy of your results for the units you have undertaken. Credit transfer may fast-track your course.


Recognition of prior learning also referred to as RPL, is the formal acknowledgment of a person’s current skills and knowledge experience gained throughout life – regardless of how they have been acquired. This is an important assessment pathway, particularly for people who are considering doing a study. The recognition gained may considerably reduce the study time needed to get a qualification. The RPL assessment may include workplace observation, interviews and professional conversations, work samples and documented evidence. Please contact the office for an RPL kit.


Further training pathways from this qualification include but are not limited to Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician and Certificate IV In Electrotechnology Systems Electrician.




“They easily explained things to me and talked about real things like how electrical stuff works and the trainers were very easygoing no matter how many times you ask them to explain something and are near or more than perfect.”



“The location, the trainers and the admin team were all great”



“The course is self-paced and accessible to someone who is working full-time!!!”


* This competency-based training duration is subjective and varies with an individual’s experience, intellect and tenacity.


Can I enrol if I am an adult looking for a change of career?

Yes, you can, this course is available for everyone as long as you meet the entry requirements.
