Course in Electrician – Minimum Australian Context Gap

The knowledge and skills of many overseas workers can be very high, but there are differences in the way the technical expertise needs to be applied in Australia. The Course in Electrician – Minimum Australian Context Gap (MACG) provides the Australian Context Gap training to holders of an Offshore Technical Skills Record (OTSR) and seeking to work in Australia, and is required to be completed before an Electrotechnology Electrician qualification can be granted by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and occupational licence issued.
