Across Australia, network owners require their transmission networks to be constructed and maintained to high standards of skill, professionalism and safety to ensure the satisfactory operation of the National Grid.
The purpose of setting minimum levels of competence for Lineworkers is to achieve the required minimum quality standards to prevent injury to workers, protect the public and their property from harm and prevent damage to assets.
Thomson Bridge provides Initial and Refresher programs for Transmission Lineworkers operating across Australia. Please review our Courses and contact our Office to discuss your needs.
We offer two pathways to achieve UET30512/9 Certificate III in ESI - Power Systems – Transmission Overhead.
Bridging programs for experienced workers - This service is offered to the employees of our corporate clients. It involves an assessment of the Candidate’s evidence including resumes, references, training certificates, high risk licences, work orders and permits.
Based on the outcome of the desktop review of the evidence portfolio, the Candidate may proceed to enrolment in the Qualification.
On completion of this gap analysis, our experienced Assessors prepare a training plan which includes a combination of Credit Transfer, RPL, gap training, supervised practical and log book options. At the completion of this Program, Thomson Bridge will award the successful Candidate with the full Qualification or relevant Units of Competency.
In 2019, over 100 workers have taken advantage of these intensive bridging programs and Adult Apprenticeships options and are on track to successfully complete their Cert III qualification.
