Career Changers

Company restructures, the need for career growth or changes in personal circumstances such as family, lifestyle, or salary can often create the need for people to change careers.

Changing careers is not easy and has to be planned carefully. The recognition of work or training (trade recognition) can play an important role when considering a career change. You might be able to transfer skills and valuable work experience from previous jobs to the energy and telecommunication industry.

Career changers can apply for a certificate of recognition in an apprenticeship trade, where the following circumstance have occurred:

  • A formal apprenticeship has not been completed
  • An apprenticeship or trade training has been completed overseas
