Capstone GAP B course and exam
 
Hi everyone...

I'm booked onto the capstone in a few months in Joondalup. I've been sent the practice exam questions, but haven't heard anything about what to expect in the practical.

Has anyone done the capstone recently? It's a week long, so I'm presuming 2 days in classroom , 1 day written exam, and 2 days practical?

Can anyone shed some light on what's involved in the practical please? I.e testing, fault finding, motors?, what kind of install you do etc...

Thank you! :cool:

Hi everyone...

I did the capstone a few weeks back. It wasn't that bad to be honest. 2 days in classroom doing GAP B ekas questions and general revision. Then the rest of the week was testing some equipment, a bit of fault finding, a small install and testing, some verbal questions, a theory test, then a maximum demand calculation.

You get to go through everything first before you do it so it's not too bad.

I passed and got my Cert III today so quite pleased. Thanks again to all the regulars on this site for all the info over the past 12 months. Very helpful!

It certainly does O.S. It also puts you in a different league when looking for jobs to be fair.
