Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1. This is the first release of this unit of competency in the UEE Electrotechnology Training Package.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to conduct compliance inspection of low voltage (LV) electrical installation with demand exceeding 100 ampere (A) per phase.
