UEE40411 – Certificate IV in Electrical Instrumentation is a natural progression for Electricians wanting to upskill and work in the Process Industry such as Mining, Oil and Gas Manufacturing, Food Industry etc.. This course gives an understanding of Calibration and Commissioning of Pressure, Level, Density, Flow and Temperature Transmitters. It allows you to connect transmitters to PLC and program a sequence to control them according to the logic in the Ladder diagram. On completion of this course, you will receive a Nationally recognised qualification. Future Pathways include UEE50211 – Diploma of Electrical and Instrumentation OR UEE31211 – Certificate III in Instrumentation and Control

UEE40411 Certificate IV in Electrical Instrumentation course Entry Requirements

Entry to this instrumentation training course requires a UEE30811 – Cert III in Electro technology. Only Electricians with Valid Electrical License can enrol for this Instrumentation qualification. This instrumentation course requires certain physical competencies that a wheelchair user or someone with significant physical disabilities simply may not be able to fulfill so please check with admin before enrolment.Students must attach a copy of their transcript, Driver’s License, Electrical License, resume and two references during enrolment so the admin staff can verify before admission to the course. Instrumentation apprenticeships are available. Please inquire with admin before enrolling into this industrial instrumentation training

Students with relevant Instrumentation experience are eligible for RPL for the units to be delivered.

The course duration will vary with experience and successful result of RPL. Online instrumentation courses are available and will accordingly influence the duration

Electricians should have completed the below units as a part of UEE30811 – Cert III in Electro Technology to attain credit transfer and entry to this course. If a student hasn’t completed the below units (do not meet the credit transfer requirements) then they will not be eligible for this course. A list of RTOs who deliver the units marked “CT” can be found on

UEE40411 Certificate IV in Electrical Instrumentation – Students have a maximum of 1 year to complete this instrumentation course from the date of enrolment. The assessments must be completed in class under the supervision of the trainer. The 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 an Instrument technician challenge test to be granted an RPL for that particular unit. Proof of Instrumentation 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 or Instrumentation apprentices may require longer timeframes if they do not have experience or exposure with instrument technician 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 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 course is organized into the following themes

Instrumentation Theory lectures

Electrical Instrumentation Assessments

Internet research


Face to face

Instrumentation and Control Practical tasks

Group work

Activities in a simulated work environment (as per Training Package Requirements)

Each student’s achievement of each Instrumentation 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.


Clients enrolling in this course are typically those electricians who desire to upskill and learn more about instrumentation which is a natural progression to the electrical trade.

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). Instrumentation 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 an Instrumentation 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.
