CPD arrangements for electricians in Tasmania

Summary

  • From 1 July 2016 Tasmanian licenced electricians will need to undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities.
  • Electricians will need to keep their own log of activities undertaken.
  • When renewing your licence every three years you will need to certify that you have undertaken at least 12 points a year of CPD activities.
  • You may be audited and asked to provide evidence of activities undertaken.
  • TREA will advertise how many Tasmanian CPD points our training event will earn.
  • TREA events are mainly targeted at people in the renewable energy and solar business but will be open to all.
  • Tasmanian CPD is different to the Clean Energy Council CPD scheme for accredited solar designers and installers. Attendance at TREA events may earn points under both schemes.
  • See the TREA events page for details of coming events. We will advertise the points issued for an event under both the Tasmanian and CEC schemes as soon as we have this information.

The details

From 1 July 2016 various licensed trades in Tasmania, including electricians, are required to undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD). From 1 July 2017 electricians will have to demonstrate that they have conducted an average of 12 points a year of CPD before being able to renew their licence. For more details see DoJ website.

Licenced electricians in Tasmania will be required to keep a log of CPD activities they have undertaken. This may be audited by Occupational Licensing in the Department of Justice.

For events that we organise, TREA will issue attendees an email Certificate of Attendance. It is your responsibility to keep this and add it to your CPD log. TREA is also required to send a list of attendees to the Department of Justice to assist with auditing.

Note the different target groups. Tasmanian CPD is for all licenced electricians in Tasmania. CEC CPD is for accredited solar designers and installers nationally.
