    Electrician apprenticeship, Adelaide

    Hi guys,
    after a lot of thought and some work experience, I have made the decision to pursue an electrical apprenticeship. I have been working in hospitality for about 12 years and I'm over it. Having spent a lot of this year doing labour and work experience with a mate that installs solar I have discovered I'm not half bad at it and he has recommended I get a mature age apprenticeship. If anyone here would consider taking on a mature age bloke with a good work ethic, some tools and his own transport that has half an idea of the industry already, I'm your guy.
    if anyone knows anyone that would take me on, please don't hesitate to put us together.
    cheers blokes.

    Is it worth completing the Pre-vocational course at Tafe? I was looking into it a few years ago with a view to get an apprenticeship with ETSA, as they had it listed as one of their pre-qualifications, https://www.tafesa.edu.au/xml/course/aw/aw_TP00420.aspx

      Sure have mate. I'm interested but it's full time study and I work mostly during the week. I can't afford not to work and unless there is a very flexible option to study, I might not be able to make it add up financially.

        While it sounds great in theory in my experience it’s a waste of time especially if you’re mature age.
        mature age apprenticeships are hard to get, I did one. You have to just keep selling yourself and once you get signed up force the tafe to give you rpl and fast tracking.

          Out of high school, a few mates went with Peer(.com.au) for a sparky apprenticeship, all ended up in the trade so I assume they were ok.

            I'm registered with peer, they have a program they hope to implement for mature age only, at this stage that program has no funding .Fingers crossed.
