Electrical Instrumentation Apprenticeships

An Electrical Instrumentation Apprenticeship will prepare you for a job where you will primarily focus on the measurement, automation and control of systems used to monitor and maintain temperature, pressure and flow in processes for industries such as mining, oil and gas, food and manufacturing.

Electrical Instrumentation takes a curious mind. Throughout your apprenticeship, you will develop the skills essential for investigating systems, installing equipment, servicing them and ensuring everything is operating at peak performance. This qualification offers opportunities across a broad spectrum of industries. You could find yourself working for large multinational organisations, such as Honeywell, BHP Billiton or even Arnott's Biscuits.

There are major two pathways to become qualified in both Instrumentation and Control – either as an apprenticeship completing the UEE31220 Certificate III in Instrumentation and Control or as a specialisation for an electrical tradesperson who has already completed the Certificate IV in Instrumentation.

This trade typically requires a five-year apprenticeship, with opportunities for Dual Trade qualifications in the HVAC industry. 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.
