Electricians - TRA Trade test in Oz - Help Pls

Recommended Posts

Guest grogs

Hey Guys

 

I have just arrived in Perth WA and have applied to have my City & Guilds qualification transfered and because I am doing it in Australia I have to apply through the TRA as apposed to applying before hand in the UK and applying through VetAssses.

 

The TRA have requested that I do a Trade test at Neca, college of electrical training.

So here are the big questions:

 

Has anyone done this trade test recently and what can I expect?

Can you chose the specific tasks in the the different sections of the practicle or are you told which tasks you are required to do?

 

I am worried about the theory and practicle with regard to Single phase and Three phase motors:

 

1 phase - Universal Motor?

1 phase - Capacitor Start - induction Run Induction Motor?

 

3 phase - Direct on Line?

3 phase - Star Delta?

 

If any one has any advise or wouldn't mind a chat about the trade test please get in touch!

 

Thanks guys, I'll let you know how it goes, I write on the 13 December 2010. For those of you who are in same boat I will let you know what is coming!

I did C&G 2330 level 2 and 3

 

I can't remember the time frame but they always responded well within the time frames they give.

 

Good luck
