Restricted Electrical Licence (Qld)

The Australian Trade Training College offers individuals and groups of employees, training in the specified units to obtain a restricted electrical licence in Queensland.

This licence limits an individual to specific electrical work associated with work from another trade or calling. Your need to perform this electrical work must be legitimate, just saving time or money are not good enough reasons to obtain a licence in the eyes of the regulator.

Examples of trades and callings that may be eligible for a restricted electrical work licence include:

  • Refrigeration and air-conditioning equipment tradespeople
  • Motor and armature rewinders
  • Electronic equipment technicians
  • Gas fitters
  • Instrumentation/process control tradespeople
  • Mechanical fitters
  • Plumbers

Section 44 of the Electrical Safety Regulation 2013 describes the eligibility requirements for a restricted electrical work licence.

On successful completion of the required units of competency, a Statement of Attainment will be issued.

All applicants in the first instance, are to contact the Queensland Electrical Safety Office on 1300 362 128 and discuss with them their eligibility to hold one of the above endorsements, and whether their personal employment requirements allow this.
