© VESI SKILLS & TRAINING REFERENCE COMMITTEE National Licensing The National Occupational Licensing System (NOLS) is being developed to remove licensing inconsistencies across state and territory borders and provide for a more mobile workforce. Its primary aim is that licence holders will be able to perform work in any state or territory with a single national licence. Initially, four occupational areas will be covered by the NOLS: –electrical, –plumbing and gas fitting, –refrigeration and air conditioning mechanics and; –property occupations. 20
© VESI SKILLS & TRAINING REFERENCE COMMITTEE National Licensing Interim Advisory Committees (IACs) were established to provide policy advice to the COAG National Licensing Steering Committee in the development of national licensing for each occupational area. The Electrical Occupations IAC (EOIAC) has met on a number of occasions to develop a series of proposals in relation to: –licence categories, scopes of work and licence types and; –eligibility requirements, both skills based and non-skill based. The Occupational Licensing National Law Bill was passed by Victorias upper house on Friday 17 September
© VESI SKILLS & TRAINING REFERENCE COMMITTEE National Licensing The Law provides the flexibility where it may be necessary to apply exemptions, endorsements, restrictions, conditions and directions to a licence category or an individual licence The new National Occupational Licensing Authority (NOLA) will be based in Sydney A CEO will be appointed and applications have closed Draft regulations and accompanying Consultation Regulation Impact Statements (RISs) for each occupational area will be released for public comment in the first half of The public will have 6 weeks to make comments on the proposals at this time. The draft regulations and the RISs will be made available at 22
© VESI SKILLS & TRAINING REFERENCE COMMITTEE National Licensing - Categories Electrician Electrical Fitter Electrical Transmission Lineworker Electrical Distribution Lineworker Electrical Rail Traction Lineworker Electrical Cable Jointer Electrical Inspector (currently VIC TAS only) The EOIAC members have envisaged a single electrical contractor licence and that the applicant would need to provide a technical nominee for the different areas of electrical work they wish to contract for 23
© VESI SKILLS & TRAINING REFERENCE COMMITTEE National Licensing - Eligibility Eligibility will be based on the qualifications or skill sets from the national training packages A Certificate III level qualification has been identified as appropriate for an electrician, electrical fitter, electrical cable jointer and the three categories of electrical Lineworker. COAG have established a no disadvantage principle that will allow current licence holders to transition to the new system Workers who do not hold a relevant (AQF) qualification and are working where a licence is not required may face difficulties becoming licensed. Applicants in this situation will meet eligibility requirements through support from their employer and/or host network operator and their Australian ESI Skills Passport. 24
