Our Safety Training course meets the requirements of the Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB) for overseas trained and qualified electrical workers who have obtained an electrical worker (EW) number and a hold or are applying for a Limited Certificate issued by the EWRB. (Note: this is not a Trainee limited Certificate, which has different training requirements).
Note: An application to the EWRB for a limited Certificate requires the applicants have a supervisor who will complete and sign the application form.
Once the Limited Certificate has been issued to the electrical worker, they then have 3 months in which to complete this safety course.
On completion of the course, the attendees training record with the EWRB will be updated by the course facilitator to reflect the completion of the safety training requirements.
