The first step generally taken to enter the electrical trades is to become an Apprentice.

The ETU recognises the important of the apprenticeships and accordingly has a dedicated section for Apprentices.

ETU State Organiser Scott Reichman is responsible for all your Apprenticeship questions. Although Scott is available to assist with technical questions such as E-profiling, training contracts etc, Members in the first instance should contact your local Organiser responsible in your area.

Apprentice training, safety and their rights are a main focus of the ETU.

Apprentices should regularly check this section for continuous updates that effect their trade and apprentice training.

Apprentices Underpaid

Electrical apprentices may be eligible for back pay following a FWC ruling on apprentice awards.
