The UEEA Training Council, Appliance Servicing Industry and Energy Skills Solutions are happy to announce the commencement of the UEE 32111 Certificate III in Appliance Servicing apprenticeship in Western Australia.
The Certificate III in Appliance Servicing was established as a Class A qualification in 2010, however delivery is unavailable in Western Australia and apprentices are required to attend training in Queensland or New South Wales. This training is inflexible, cumbersome, time consuming and cost prohibitive.
Manufacturers were using small teams of their own technicians and in some cases contracting out warranty work to the appliance service specialists. Not having the apprenticeship delivered in WA, has led to the appliance service industry having serious skill deficiencies, which in turn has had an adverse effect on product reputation.
Enormous efforts by all stake holders has gone into getting the training to this level, including the Department of Training and Workforce Development who have approved the funding for this apprenticeship.
Energy Skills Solutions will commence training for their first group of apprentices on Monday 2nd October 2017. Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) will also be available for existing employees.
