Comprehensive training materials have been developed by EIT to support these courses. The materials have been created to meet the requirements of the UET12 National Training Package developed by EE-Oz Training Standards for the National Electricity Supply Industry.

This ESI - Power Systems from Engineering Institute of Technology uses a blended learning format, comprising live, online presentations combined with on-the-job training at your own workplace as required by the national training standards. 

The qualifications are nationally recognized within the Australian Qualifications Framework and EIT (as a registered training organization) has the qualification in its “scope” for delivery nationally.


The 3 elective streams of each course allow students to specialize and develop careers in one of the following challenging and exciting fields:

  • Electrical protection and testing – network protection systems, control systems, power communication equipment
  • Electrical engineering design – overhead, underground, substations and public lighting systems
  • Power system operations – LV and HV distribution systems, transmission systems, sub-transmission networks
