Check if your previous cabling experience counts

In some situations, you may not need to complete all parts of a cabler training course.

You can apply for recognition of prior learning if you have experience in cabling or a related field.

When you apply for a cabling course, the training provider will assess your experience. It may reduce the number of course modules you need to complete.

Relevant experience includes installing:

  • telecommunications cables
  • electrical cabling
  • data cables
  • security or fire alarms
  • lift cables

Designing or supervising cabling work is not accepted as relevant experience.

If your previous cabling registration has expired, you may need to complete more training before you can register.

Contact a registered training provider to discuss your experience.
