course objectives


  • To undertake work on Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas (EEHA) that meets the requirements of AS/NZS 60079.14 and AS/NZS 60079.17.


  • To enhance students’ PLC and electrical instrumentation skills and provide exposure to process instrumentation and control used in the industry.


  • To provide a pathway for electricians to Clean Energy Council Grid Connected PV Design and Installation Accreditation to design, install, configure, test and commission grid connected power supply systems.

Students who hold an unrestricted electrical license issued by a state or Territory and are successfully competent in both theoretical and practical training, completing all units of competency in the training package (refer http://training.gov.au/Training/Details/UEE40611), will receive the full qualification


Electrotechnology – Systems Electrician

This qualification provides competencies to:
a) Select, install, test, maintain and inspect electrical equipment in hazardous areas (EEHA) in a gas and dust atmospheres; or
b) Select, install, commission, fault find and maintain electrical and instrumentation equipment in buildings, premises, instrumentation systems and core instrumentation equipment; or
c) Select, design and install grid-connected PV systems, develop and assess strategies for energy loads and energy efficiency in domestic, commercial and industrial properties and enterprises
It includes ERAC requirements for an ‘Electrician’s licence’

target workforce

This post-trade professional development gap training in electrotechnology is aimed at and encourages candidates who would like to gain knowledge and “hands-on” skills in
a) Electrical equipment in hazardous area (EEHA) work in the installation, maintenance, testing and detailed inspection, or
b) PLC and process instrumentation using interface with HART field instrumentation, or
c) Grid-connected PV systems design and install, strategies for energy efficiency and assessing energy loads and energy efficiency

A current electrical license (any Australian state or territory) is required. Electrical engineers who meet the pre-requisites for electrical equipment in hazardous areas, PLC and Instrumentation units will be issued Statement of Attainment for the units they have successfully completed.

Delivered at one of PMV’s national training centres – Perth, Brisbane & Adelaide; or at a client’s facility.

course training method

Blended delivery of 60% theory and 40% practical training with equipment that you are likely to see in a typical industrial environment with
a) Electrical equipment in hazardous area (EEHA); or
b) HART rated instrumentation and final control elements with PLC control system, or
c) Grid-connected PV systems and domestic, commercial and industrial energy loads

The course includes in-class progressive assessment; short answer tests on
a) Hazardous area fundamentals; equipment marking; equipment certification; and, device interpretation or
b) Hands on PLC programming, testing and fault finding, solving problems in pressure, density, level, flow and temperature instruments, wiring, calibration and loop testing, or
c) Shading Analysis, PV install for different roof types, rails, modules, DC Isolator, pre-commissioning, commissioning and fault-finding. Load analysis, load efficiencies and strategies to increase the energy efficiency using different renewable resources
