Hi Jamie

Not sure if you've seen this thread - http://britishexpats.com/forum/elect...e-help-840023/

The advice from Steve'O (post #13 in that thread) may be worth a look

Thanks for the link, very helpful. I did read of the guy that was supposedly helpful for migrants but thought it may be myth. I have messaged the rto and am awaiting a reply. HomePage Link for the training organisation. Has info on the mechanic licence tab for others with otsr.

Update, the course cost is $3750 and likely to increase. I must get the restricted licence and find a job before enrolling. I believe this is so I can gain local knowledge and pick up the regs from being on the job with qualified guys.
Will be moving in August and looking for a job straight away.
I'll update on the restricted licence when I get that.

You will need to show your OTSR to get supervised workers license. You wont learn the regs on the job in all likelihood so keep an eye out for second hand copies. You'll probably also need to refresh yourself on cable calcs - max demand, current carrying capacity, volt drops, etc
