Vetassess practical results.

Hi everyone
I did a General Electrician practical assessment for Vetassess at the beginning of Sept in Belfast but I still have not received any results. I rang their office in Melbourne but all they can tell me is "my assessment is in progress".

Is there anybody else in a similar position or can anybody give me an indication of how long I can expect to wait to get my results?
Cheers
dannyt

Just got word from them today to apologise for the delay my assessor has been out of the country and I should have my results within 5 to 7 working days so fingers crossed.

I'm an industrial electrician working in the mining industry since 2004. And got sponsored by a mining company in Kalgoorlie Western Australia.

The best place to find work is a website www.seek.com.au but nowhere will even look at you without passing your skills assessment and getting an OTSR Cert.

What's your back ground is it industrial or domestic ?

The practical involves a 40 min theory test so brush up on Power Factor Correction, 3phase formulas, power triangle, sine waves, ohms law and impedance formulas.
Then you have to wire a single phase distribution board with a 2 way lighting circuit and two socket circuits. So there will be bending of PVC conduit involved.

Then you will have to wire a motor control circuit it can be a simple stop start circuit or it can be a forward reverse or a remote stop start or something like that. Once your finished and the circuit is tested the assessor will ask you to leave for a few mins, he will put a fault on the circuit and ask you to find it.

Then comes safe isolation you will have to isolate a circuit, I had to isolate a water heating element. Basically the assessor will be standing beside you and you have to tell him step by step what your doing as your doing it. He deducts marks if you do something unsafe, so you have to test your meter to a known live every time you use it.

Hope this helps a bit give me a shout if you need any more help.
P.S you should be excited I'm only here a month and my mrs and I love it. There is nothing like getting up every morn to sunshine. Oh by the way where is your assessment ?

i am a domestic/comercial electrician with 14 yrs total experience,

i am just doing the vetasses online assesment and making sure i fill everything in as best as possible, the ebaying some things to put towards all the costs lol

so once i get this sorted , finding a sponsor and getting out there doesnt have to take all that long from your experience anyway!

thats good news,

i better get some revision done, as motors and formulas etc i havent done since college almost lol,

now the board, circuits and plastic conduit i should sail through though!

Yea exactly that, just a big thing is that every time you use your meter you have to test it on a known live. They will provide a known live for you. So if you test your circuit and it's dead straight away test your meter on known live.

Once you have passed your paper based assessment Vetassess will send you some study guides anyway and some sample questions.

This is the slowest part of it dealing with Vetassess. So brace yourself it could take the best part of a few months to actually get a practical assessment.
