What experience do I need to be eligible for the assessment?

The Installation Electrician EWA is an assessment process against the industry standard – it is not a short cut to qualified status. To be eligible for the assessment you must be working as a practising electrician and have a minimum of 5 years’ experience working across the range of activity set out in the Skills Scan.

The 5 years cannot include time you have spent in training, either full- or part-time, for example college-based technical certificates. It means 5 years working solely as an electrician and not in training.

Your experience will be verified by a training provider before you can be accepted onto the EWA.

If you’re unsure about whether you are eligible based on your experience, please contact TESP for advice.
