Why are electricians always up to date? Because they are current specialists.

Ok all puns aside, 10-14 September is National Electricity Safety Week, and what better time to make sure you are up to date on your electrical safety training.

These forums are aimed at both apprentices and supervising tradespeople to help build the capabilities of apprentices to be safe and productive at work. In addition to supporting you to keep your skills up to date and stay in demand, CSQ are supporting free Apprentice Safety Forums taking place across the State as part of the week of activities.

You can find out more about new courses including Working safely near live electrical apparatus as a non-electrical worker and Working with and close to electricity involves heightened risk.

This training assists workers to adapt to safety, licensing and regulatory requirements as well as to changing job requirements brought about by new products, processes, methodologies, consumer demands and technologies.

To find out more about CSQ subsidised training, including short courses, higher level skills training and skills assessment and gap training, visit csq.org.au.

The Apprentice Safety Forums will take place in Townsville (Monday, September 10), Bracken Ridge (Tuesday, September 11), Rockhampton (Wednesday, September 12), Acacia Ridge (Thursday, September 13) and Toowoomba (Friday, September 14). Registration is via worksafe.qld.gov.au
