Electrician Apprenticeships

Hi Guys,

Does anyone here know much about elctrician apprenticeships.. I am considering doing one, but the only place in victoria I have heard of so far is VICTEC and I think they require you to do a 6month pre-apprenticeship course full time which would be pretty impossible in the situation I am would have to leave my fulltime job and go to no income for 6 months plus I am paying off a loan.

So my question is does anyone know of any where else you can do electrician apprenticeships through in victoria? And has anyone gone through this and can give me any advice?

Re: Electrician Apprenticeships

Bit of a bummer that you are unable to do the pre-app as i went to apply for many jobs and got knocked back because i hadnt done one, so i enrolled with swinburne to start a pre-app 6 months ago and now have only one week to go and possibly a job lined up with holden when i finish

the other group training companys such as VICTEC i know of are:

MEGT: Melbourne East Group Training
Apprenticeships Victoria
Frontline

Career One is a good site to look for electrical apprenticeships

Best of Luck,
Rory

Re: Electrician Apprenticeships

MEGT are currently recruiting and just looking at a handout i got from them the other day the requirements are

-Must have successfully completed year 11 or 12 or the pre-app

speak to John Taufer if your interested on 0404824605

only problem is that most of there work is over on the North+East side



A mate of mine scored an apprenticeship by writing up an advertisement on an A4 sheet of paper stating his : contact details and a bit about himself and that he was seeking an apprenticeship and got it posted up near the counter of places where electricians go to buy stuff such as Middys Electrical

I applied with Aprenticeships Victoria a year ago http://www.appsvic.com.au/ and never heard back from them , u might have some more luck than i did

Re: Electrician Apprenticeships

I'm currently looking for a apprenticeship myself, Auto Electrician though, but thankfully I have a couple of leads that could lead to one or do a training course. Apprenticeships are definatly the way to go, no student load :)
