Electrical Fitting Apprenticeships

An Electrical Fitting Apprenticeship will prepare you for a job where you will typically work on the development and maintenance of major electrical infrastructure including the wiring between electrical components in power plants or in major machinery used in industries like mining or manufacturing. They are sometimes referred to as an Electrical Fitter Mechanic.

The career pathway for an Electrical Fitter can allow you to specialise as switchboard builders, armature winders (who wind or rewind coils on electrical motors and generators), or electrical instrument fitters (who test, repair and maintain electrical measuring equipment used in industry). There are also further career development opportunities to upgrade to a full electrical licence allowing you to also carry out the same works as Electricians. This would set you apart as also being equipped to carry out specialised installation works.

This trade typically requires a four-year apprenticeship. MIGAS will facilitate your practical work placement with one of our quality host employers. In addition to on-the-job training, we will assist you with enrolment through a Registered Training Organisation to complete your certification. With MIGAS you will be fully supported throughout the duration of your placement by a Field Officer and by the wider MIGAS Apprentices and Trainees community.
