Are there any pre-requisites for doing a Test and Tag Course?
There are no pre-requites required to undertake our test and tag course. Likewise, you don’t need to have any kind of electrical background or qualifications, as our course will teach you everything you need to know, starting from the basics. The majority of our students actually have no electrical background at all.
How is the Nationally Recognised course different to the Short course?
Both the Nationally Recognised and Short Course are delivered in a face-to-face training session over 1 day. However, the major difference between them is that the Nationally Recognised Course has an additional self-paced OHS (Occupational Health and Safety) online component and is thereby considered a higher qualification. The course you decide on will largely depend on your particular needs. To choose the course that fits your needs the best, simply go to Choosing the Right Course.
How long does the course go for?
The course consists of 1 day of face-to-face training, starting from 8:00am and finishing at approximately 4:30pm. If you’re planning on doing the Nationally Recognised course, it’ll consist of an additional self-paced OHS online component, which is to be completed in your own time before the course.
Who will be the trainer on the day?
We have a number of different trainers, all of which are test and tag industry professionals with many years of experience. In addition, they’re all very friendly, approachable and make the training an enjoyable experience. Whatever your reason for the doing the course is, we guarantee our trainers will give you all the knowledge and skills required to successfully test and tag.
How is the course structured?
The morning session will predominately focus on the theory required to test and tag, while the afternoon consists of practical hands-on training. All of our classes are kept to a maximum of 12 people so that everyone in the room can get individual time and support from our trainer. Upon completing the course, you should be completely comfortable at testing and tagging on your own.
