Nah nothing like that, the assessor just asked how you would wire in an extra stop or start switch. Remember - stops in series, starts in parallel. I read some of the other guys were asked questions about the hold on connection but as long as you`re familiar with the circuit you wont have much trouble.

Make sure you know how to wire the motor terminals both for star and delta connection. We didnt wire an actual motor but there is an excercise for this during the test.

Hi,

If you go back a few pages on this thread you will see some links to help with the electrcial theory side.

Otherwise, you can get 2 books that helped me from amazon or waterstones:

Electrical installation calculations vol 1 - AJ Watkins & C Kitcher

Basic electrical installation work level 2 C&G - Trevor Linsley

Im doin RLC in my sleep now!!!!!!

Cheers

Richie

Hi,

Tafe rescheduled my trade test on the last week of Feb. have you received a letter from TRA with the details like contact person, phone number and venue? Call them because they may have different policies in terms of gears to wear and tools to bring. My trade test is for an Electrical Fitter. They told me that scope of the test would be on baisc electrical theories, motors, motor conrols, safety and lighting. I am also waiting at the moment for the schedule of an orientation before the actual trade test.

Hi Alex,

Yeah i got the TRA letter i had arranged with people from TAFE about my test schedule and my test is also for Electrical Fitter. At the moment, i am still waiting from TAFE to send me all the details of the test and orientation date prior to my test date.

I'm just curious which TAFE you will take the test? Also which country you from? I came from Philippines and was assessed as General Electrician before migrating here in OZ but you got your employer , I don't have employer when i came here but my visa is Sub class - 138 Skilled Migrant, Permanent Resident.That's why i am not sure if i can work here under supervision of licensed Electrician

Thanks for all the infos mate .Good luck to both of us

Question Re: practical exam theory

Hey,

My other half is doing the test at Bolton College on Friday (20th)

He's a Leccy and obviously like most of you is nervous about the test. Can anyone explain the 'marking system'? Do you have to get everything correct in order to pass or is there a percentage you have to get right???

Thanks to everyone who has given advise on the actual day, it's really helped but if anyone knows about the marking system that would put our minds at rest as well!

Yeah, there is a marking system for the multi choice theory test but i dont know what the pass mark is....
As for the rest of the tests, I think there is some sort of marking procedure although personally I think the assessor will judge for himself as to whether you are competent or not. GOOD LUCK!!

HI guys

I've got a practical booked in Blackburn in June, I live on the south coast so no too far away!!!!

I've been swatting up for a while, and it gets to a stage where the more you read the more you push out the stuff you learned in the beginning. I only have a small brain so little and often is the key.

Anyone else booked into the Blackburn assessment?
