Foundation Passport - Electrical Workers

This is a one-day health and safety refresher training course. To attend this course, you must already be a registered electrical worker – completion of this course will renew your Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB) practising licence and First Aid/CPR. 

The Foundation Passport - Electrical Workers course is for registered residential and commercial electrical workers, including those who are self-employed (this course is not applicable for line mechanics or cable jointers).

With the Foundation Passport - Electrical Workers course you will:

  • Renew your practising licence and your Site Safety Card (Passport) at the same time, saving you money, time and travelling costs
  • Gain practical testing skills in line with AS/NZS 3000:2007 Section 8 and AS/NZS 3760:2010
  • Gain competence in First Aid/CPR

Please note: while completion of this course will renew your EWRB practising licence, you must still pay a licence renewal fee to the EWRB to complete your renewal.
