This course provides comprehensive knowledge and skills in Instrumentation, PID Controlers, HMI's, Control Valves and PLC programming..
This qualification is made up of 23 core units and a 3 elective units of competency. from the 23 core units, 6 are credit transfered from the Australian Electrical Licence (UEE30811 or equivalent), leaving a total of 17 core units and 3 elective units to be completed.
For the students that have already completed a Cert. IV in Electrical Instrumentation (UEE40420), 6 more units can be credit transfer, leaving a total of 11 core units and 3 elective units to be completed.
The table below shows the list of units to be completed as part of the Cert. III in Instrumentation and Control. The units highlited in red are the units that are credit transfered from the electrical licence and the ones in blue are the ones credit transfered from the Cert. IV in Electrical Instrumentation.
To be eligible to undertake the course you must currently hold a UEE30820 Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician OR a current ‘Unrestricted Electricians Licence’ or its equivalent issued in an Australian state or territory.
If students do not have an Unrestricted Electrical Licence but still wish to do some or all units of competency that are part of this qualification, they will be issued a Statement of Attendance (after Meo Training analized the situation and considered that the student has sufficient prior knowledge to attend the unit(s)).
If students wish to enroll in just one or some of the units of competency that are part of this qualification, Meo Training will analize the situation and consider that the student has sufficient prior knowledge to attend the unit(s). In those cases, they will be issued a Statement of Attendance or a Statement of Attainment (depending on the situation).
Statement Of Attainment VS Statement Of Attendance
A statement of attainment is a formal qualification that is Nationally recognised and comes with the unit code. This indicates that you have attained the necessary competencies and completed the prerequisite units for a specific competency.
A statement of attendance states that you have attended the course and completed the training but does not give you the Nationally recognised unit code like UEENEEE101A it only describes the name of the unit without the code.
Some employers would accept a statement of attendance and others would require the statement of attainment.
For both situation, students are offered the same training and assessments but, because the pre-requisites rquired by ASQA are not met, students can not receive the course codes on the Certificate. This system of statement of attendance was specifically designed by RTOs for Employers who want to send their employees to do a specific training unit and do not want to pay for the prerequisite units as they deem it is not necessary. The RTO will only deliver training without prerequisite units if it is safe to do so.

This qualification provides competencies to select, install, set up, test, fault find, repair and maintain systems and devices for measurement and recording of physical/chemical phenomenon and related process control. It provides certified electricians with a dual trade in electrical / instrumentation, which is a skill in high demand.
Our flexible delivery allows students to progress at their own pace, therefore the duration will vary with experience and capabilities of different students.
The recommended duration of this qualification is 213h, for students that need to complete all the 17 core units units + 3 elective units that are part of this qualifiation (6 of the core units are always credit transfered from the Australian Electrical Licence).
Students that have a Cert. IV in Electrical instrumentation (UEE40420 or 40411) are eligible for Credit Transfer for 6 more core units, having to complete only 11 core units + 3 elective units.
This course consists of two parts:
Theory delivery and assessments - The theory delivery and assessments can be done online or face to face, or a blend between modes - some units can be completed at home and others face to face, depending on students needs, schedules and capabilities. The face to face theory delivery is done over 8 days.
Practical delivery and assessessments - The practial delivery and assessments are done at our campus and the total recommended time for practical delivery and assessments is 8 days. Blended delivery (part online or at workplace) can also be discussed, if there are time/travel constraits that prevent you from coming to our campus. For students that have previously completed a Cert. IV in Electrical instrumentation (UEE40420 or 40411), the practical delivery and assessments is reduced for 4 days.
