I’m not currently working as an electrician but would like my skills recognised. Can I take the EWA?

If you aren’t currently working as an electrician, you will not be able to complete the EWA’s practical assessments. The EWA is targeted at practising electricians, and the performance assessments have to be based on current, authenticated activity. You may have evidence from past work that will confirm that you’re a suitable candidate for EWA, but you’d still need to be working now in order to generate up to date evidence across the range of activity required.

Unfortunately, there are no exemptions from the performance units within EWA.
