The Electrotechnology Department, located at our Moorabbin campus, has delivered professional and vocational training to thousands of students throughout its 25 years of operation.
An electrical qualification provides a career pathway into industries that are challenging, rewarding and growing, both within Australia and internationally. People within these professions are highly specialised and sought after by industry, most notably in the areas of domestic and commercial electrical work; air-conditioning/refrigeration and renewable energy. In particular, in the highly lucrative electrical trade, local demand to employ qualified electricians continues to outstrip supply. While emerging new technologies, most notably in the area of renewable energy and sustainability, continue to stimulate demand for electricians who are competent in a range of installation techniques and applications.
Electrotechnology students may commence as a pre-apprentice or apprentice and return to the Department for up skilling at advanced trade level. All courses are conducted in partnership with key industry and employer stakeholders.
The Electrotechnology Department also offers the highly popular Electronics (Automotive) Program, a unique course that offers participants the opportunity to become an expert in the installation and management of car audio systems.
Our teachers are industry qualified and experienced, while our extensive business relationships provide direct access to the working environment, techniques and conditions that participants often find missing within other programs. The education and training facilities, located within the Moorabbin campus, offer participants a one stop learning and development environment, providing them with direct access to the tools, materials, systems, knowledge and experience they need to succeed within their chosen field of study. In fact, many business operators have rated our facilities the best in Victoria, further testimony to the value we deliver in the area of development and training.
