You will need this licence if you intend to carry out electrical work. This includes if you are employed by a business to perform electrical work.
The different types of electrical practitioner licences in Tasmania include electrician, cable jointer and line worker. Each licence allows you to perform different types of work.
If you hold an electrical practitioners licence in another State or Territory, you may be eligible to have that licence automatically recognised in Tasmania.
A provisional electrical work licence may be issued to allow a person to complete their training to enable them to obtain an electrical practitioners licence as an electrician, cable jointer or lineworker. This is usually to allow people who have moved to Tasmania from overseas to complete gap training to become eligible for an electrical practitioners licence in Tasmania.
