Short Course Readiness Assessment

Are you interested in a career in Electrotechnology?

The Readiness Assessment (RA) is a national electrical industry specific aptitude test designed to assess the potential of aspiring electrical apprentices, covering 15 areas of numeracy and literacy required to be successful in an electrical apprenticeship.

By undertaking the RA through an online Learning Management System, potential apprentices are able to demonstrate that they have the required level of Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LL&N) for the job and at trade school. Results highlight areas where improvement is required along with links to remedial resources.

Experience has shown that prospective apprentices who have demonstrated the LL&N scale identified by industry as ‘best equipped to achieve competency’.   To prepare prospective apprentices for the RA, preparatory resources and a practice test are available which closely align to the formal assessment.

People who are enrolled in the UEE22011 – Certificate II in Electrotechnology (Career Start) will do this assessment at no cost.

Give yourself this unique opportunity that will enable you to promote yourself in the industry to prospective employers.
