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 working people who are considering doing a course. The recognition gained may considerably reduce the study time needed to get a qualification.

RPL is not available for Cert 3 in Electrotechnology


Further training pathways from this qualification include but are not limited to Certificate IV and Diploma level qualifications in Hazardous areas, Instrumentation, HVAC, Transmission, Renewable energy, Automation etc.

Jeison T.S.


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