The QTP course is part of the Electrical Contractor’s Course. With this course, you can apply to become a Qualified Technical Person QTP for the Electrical Contractor’s Licence. If you want the full licence, you will also need to complete the Qualified Business Person Course (QBP).

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.

The RPL assessment may include workplace observation, interviews and professional conversations, work samples and documented evidence.


To become an Electrical Contractor, you will also need to complete the Qualified Business Person (QBP) Course.


These units are part of the requirements for people who are applying for an electrical contractor’s licence from the Electrical Safety Office to become a Qualified Technical Person (QTP).
