Electrical apprenticeships made easy!

As a not-for-profit group training organisation, EGT employs and trains apprentices within the industry and places them with a host employer for an agreed period of time, in order to gain varied on-the-job experience.

EGT provides opportunities to build lifelong careers, whilst delivering host employers with low risk, flexible, hassle-free employment solutions.

Since 1988 EGT (then EEGAS) has provided a consistent supply of high quality, skilled employees to meet current and future labour and skills needs. Commencing with just 12 apprentices, EGT is now the largest employer of electrical apprentices in Western Australia with over 500 apprentices working across a range of areas.

As the employer of choice for the electrotechnology industry, EGT’s employees include:

Over 260 host employers provide EGT apprentices with on-the-job training. Host employers are generally small businesses, who benefit from the straightforward employment arrangements offered through EGT.

Off-the-job training is delivered by the College of Electrical Training (CET) and various Public Providers (TAFE colleges) to ensure apprentices continually enhance their skills.

EGT apprentices also benefit from training in areas such as:

  • Working Safely at Heights
  • Yellow Card
  • Annual Safety Training
  • Perform Rescue from a Live LV Panel and CPR
  • Checking and Testing an Electrical Installation
  • Programmable Logic Controllers Skill Set
  • Optical Fibre Cabling
