Certificate III in Instrumentation and Control

Course Description
The UEE31211 Certificate III in Instrumentation and Control is a trade qualified instrumentation tradesmen and can be done as a stand-alone trade or completed by Electricians to give them the Instrumentation Trade Certificate.

The below units are assuming you are already an Electrician, where you would receive a credit transfer for any Electrical units required by this qualification.
(Currently we do not offer the Electrical units required by this qualification – Students are required to be Unrestricted Electricians.)

Training is completed in person and on site.

24hr access to Volt Edge support network.

View our calendar to see which dates suits you.

Course Delivery
Approximately 120 Hrs of online self-paced learning and up to three weeks of face to face practicals.
NOTE: This will vary with experience and capabilities of different students.

This course consists of two stages;
The first stage is completed externally through an online learning system which is completely flexible and self-paced and equates to approximately 120 hrs of online learning.

The second stage of the assessment is a multi week intensive practical assessment which can be done on a flexible training timetable, where the approx. 20 separate practicals (depending upon Electives Chosen) are completed as follows;
Week 1 Practicals.
Week 2 Practicals.
Week 3 Practicals.

Our Training Coordinators will let you know which days you will be required depending on your Electives and other competencies already completed.
