Assessment outcome

If

you successfully complete the assessment process you will receive the following:

an Offshore Technical Skills Record (OTSR) that lists the units of competency in which you have been assessed as having successfully achieved the required technical skills; this shows you are eligible to gain provisional licensing in your trade.

If

you are unsuccessful in the assessment process you will be issued:

a Record of Assessment that lists units of competency you have successfully achieved and those that were not achieved.

Offshore Technical Skills Record

The Offshore Technical Skills Record (OTSR) is a form of skills documentation that is issued by VETASSESS on successful completion of the practical component of the relevant units of competency or qualification. It lists the technical skills demonstrated in the practical assessment and any gaps in the Australian skills or knowledge component which needs to be bridged to meet the full standard, for example the Australian Wiring Rules for electrical trades.

The regulators for the Australian Electrical Industry have agreed to provide a provisional (restricted) license against the OTSR to allow applicants to work, once they arrive in Australia, while they complete the ‘Australian knowledge’ (gap training) element.

Registered Training Organisations (RTOs) including TAFE Institutes will view the OTSR as evidence of recognition of your skills contributing to a statement of attainment or qualification. Some RTOs in each State and/or Territory will offer the required gap training to meet the qualification and licensing requirements. If you would like information about gap training, please refer to the Ee-Oz website at www.ee-oz.com.au.

The OTSR entitles the holder to obtain ‘provisional’ licensing or registration. To obtain a full licence, work experience in Australia and completion of the required Australian minimum content gap training is required.

A ‘licensed electrician’ means a person who is licensed to undertake unsupervised electrical work in a

jurisdiction and undertakes selection, assembling, constructing, installing, testing, fault finding, commissioning, maintaining, repairing, altering, removing, or replacing of electrical equipment and/or electrical installations. It may include supervision or inspection of electrical work.

Licensing and industry information

A licence is required for this occupation.
