Ausinet is specialised in Electrical, Instrumentation and Automation and the trainers are specialists in the field and have themselves worked in the industry for more than 20 years.

In the current job market it might be hard to find a qualified job in your field especially if you are just finishing your studies or if you have completed your qualification overseas.

What most employers look for is people with technical experience in Australia which can be quite hard to acquire especially in those highly specialised fields.

Ausinet offers you the opportunity to get training and experience which are highly valid in the industry and will help you be a prime candidate for job opportunities.

  • You will first get enrolled into our Basic and Advanced PLC courses as well as our HMI SCADA course valued at $2,550.
  • Then you will be able to do instrumentation and automation practicals which will enable you to connect the instruments to the PLC-SCADA and test them
  • After this you will be able to practise while you work alongside our senior Electricians, Electrical Engineers and Trainers for up to 3 months and have access to our facilities and resources for real-world experience.

There is no funding currently available for this course.

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 acknowledgement 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 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.
