Qualified Technical Person (QTP)


The Term Training Electrical Contractors Course is made up of two parts, a business and a technical course which is set out by the Electrical Safety Office of Queensland.

The QTP course covers current practices in working safely and verifying compliance of electrical installations.
It encompasses working safely, procedures for rescue from contact with live parts and for applying emergency first aid. It also encompasses current practices in visual inspections and mandatory compliance testing, identifying non-compliance defects and mandatory reporting requirements.

The QTP course is delivered via a workbook, online learning and a one day face‐to‐face assessment. The workbook has all the learning material and self paced questions to prepare you for the theory assessment. The online learning component is required to be completed prior to attending the mandatory one day assessment.

The learning material is posted to you once the fee is paid and includes areas such as mandatory testing requirements, voltage drop, cable selection and electrical safety. You will require a copy of AS/NZS 3000 for your study and assessment. These two parts take ~15hrs to complete. This training requires a final face‐to‐face assessment that includes a theory and practical component. This one day assessment is conducted at Term Training’s office in Molendinar on the Gold Coast. Assessment dates are available on the Term Training online calendar.

To undertake this training you must be currently licensed as an Electrical Mechanic, Electrical Fitter and Mechanic or equivalent.

After successful completion, you will receive a nationally recognised statement of attainment for the following units:

UEENEEG197A – Apply currency of safe work practices and compliance verification of general electrical installations
UEENEEG122A – Conduct compliance inspection of single phase LV electrical installations
UEENEEG123A – Conduct compliance inspection of LV electrical installations with demand exceeding 100 A per phase.
