Nothing, you're not able to perform electrical work in WA without electrical license. That's what law said.

In reality it is really difficult to find even an electrical trade assistant job, nobody want to take a risk employing you without the license.

Thank you very much for those links thats great i think i understand now. Basically if i'm seeing this correctly i fill in the form then get a place on the two week course which then gives me the licence due to the fact that i have already proved myself to vetassess in the uk
