For the appliance testing he will be given 2 irons to test.
1st he must check the cord for wear,
2nd check the cord grip to ensure it is holding the cable securley
3RD Check the plug top to ensure the wires are not crossed.
4th check the isulation resistance
5th check the wattage of the iron (generally 2400w) which will be on the data plate, then check the element resistance which he will do in ohms, then do ohms law formula to ensure this reading is correct against the data plate.
Also enure the iron switchs off,

For the DOL starter see Steve'O post.

Best of luck

Hi is your OH working in Perth at the moment or does he have to do the exam first, not sure if you can work supervised until the exam has been passed. Also is there a lot of work over there for Electricians once they have their licence my OH is worried about moving over there and not being able to get work. Thanks for any help.

Sorry cant help you as he was assessed by the TRA and he wasnt tested we just had to supply as much info as poss so they would recognise him as an electrician.
