I did mine with Vetassess so it may be different, but I'm not too sure. I think the pin board resistance is something that has been taken out of the assessment, but again I'm not too sure as your doing future skills and their assessment may differ from the Vetassess assessments. The conduit was just PVC and you were given a spring. It's only a small 50mm double set which you just bend over your knee. You don't get a conduit former or vice.

All,

Has anyone completed the Prac in WA recently?

If so please PM me with any details you think may be of use.

It would be much appreciated!!!

Cheers.

Hi all,

I've put together some questions.

If anyone could have a go at some of these for me I'd greatly appreciate it.


Questions as they come up.

1. How do you ascertain the correct protective device during safe isolation procedure? Is it labeled?


2. What is the difference between Star and Delta? Purely Neutral/No Neutral?

For the practical how in-depth do you need to know this?


3. When testing during safe isolation do you test both the DB end (line side of circuit breaker) as well as the equipment end? Or purely the equipment end?


4. With the DOL schematic including both Power and Control Circuits: please indicate the best way to draw this. Should all control components be drawn outside the proper controls or integrated?
If anyone could link me to a drawing they know to be 100% accurate I’d much appreciate it.


5. For the circuit in question at the safe isolation: can anyone remember the details of the CB rating so that I can read up on the correct maximum ohms for the CPC.


6. After reading everyones posts it appears that the most commonly asked questions are:

Resistors in series
Resistors in parallel
Capacitors in series
Capacitors in parallel
Health and safety.

Any others that require special mention?


7. Is it true to say that

a circuit with a lagging power factor would have inductive reactance and a circuit with a leading power factor would have capacitive reactance?


8. Can someone link me to the exact symbols to be used when drawing the DOL circuit?


9. When carrying out the safe isolation procedure do you have to vocalize everything as per the 2391? Or is just your methods.

Hi Mate ,
Is the format roughly - Domestic installation, Technical interview/ theory test , Motor control installation , Safe disconnect + reconnect procedures.

Should be doing the assessment at the start of Nov

thanks

There is info on what is included in the practical assessments on here - whether there is any difference in a Future Skills assessment I couldn't say, but no difference for a Vic Uni one from Vetassess so I wouldn't think so. Each state handles gap training differently so hopefully someone from NSW can tell you what's involved. Have you checked that a future skills OTSR will be accepted as I had difficulty getting a Vic Uni one recognised.

If you are impatient for information, try asking Future Skills what is involved or for practice advice but posting to access the pm system is frowned upon and against site rules.

I wouldnt say I was posting to access the PM system. I use this site to share and gain experiences like everyone else, just never been a member. Thankyoufor your info on the course though. Also when you say Future Skills OTSR being accepted do you mean by the TRA?

No, by the licensing body of your state. OTSR is recognised by DIBP for a PR visa. TRA will not be involved.
