6 STEPS TO BECOMING AN ELECTRICAL APPRENTICE (Infographic)

1. GET INFORMED

Educate yourself on what an apprenticeship is and what you’re getting into. Check out the Australian Apprenticeship website here.

2. WORK EXPERIENCE (IF YOU ARE STILL AT SCHOOL DISCUSS AUSTRALIAN APPRENTICESHIPS WITH YOUR CAREER ADVISERS OR TEACHERS)

Remember, work experience is different to being employed. You’re paid in experience which in turn develops your practical skills. There are always people looking for an extra helping hand so check out Facebook, Gumtree and local notice boards and get in touch with them.

3. CREATE A RESUME

Regardless of your level of experience a resume is the most valuable asset you have when it comes to marketing yourself.

4. FIND AN EMPLOYER

Some employers will advertise for apprentices — look out for their ads on Seek and other job advertising sites. A bit of initiative is also helpful — look for contractors in your area and give them a call.

5. NOMINATE CET AS YOUR RTO

Once you become an apprentice, make sure you nominate CET as your RTO. The Australian Apprentices Support Network provider will ask you when you are signing your training contract. Choosing CET means you will be trained at one of our state of the art, industry-endorsed campuses.

6. SEEK OTHER OPPORTUNITIES

Many employers won’t even consider you for an apprenticeship unless you have a Cert II Pre-Apprenticeship. So if you’re going to do a Pre-App, why not do it with the Industry Association’s own college — CET! Being a part of CET builds credibility. We’re a reputable training provider that educates its students to be compliant to the highest standard. Get in touch with us for more information.
