Meo Training’s Head Office is located at Camp Hill, Brisbane. Classes in Brisbane are held at CTC (Construction Training Centre) Salisbury. 

Meo Training also offers Electrical Instrumentation courses in Newcastle, Sydney, Melbourne and Gladstone (locations to be confirmed). Other locations can be considered for groups. We also offer onsite Training for groups.   

The global need for instrumentation and process automation is soaring, and analysts project that by 2026, the industry will be worth $106 billion. As the instrumentation market expands, so does the demand for appropriately trained individuals who have undergone the required training.

Qualified professionals have been in-demand in the last decade and can receive great pay rates. It is expected that this demand continues. It’s also a rewarding job, where the possibilities are endless.

This qualification equips you with the skills you need to ensure engineering systems and processes operate effectively and safely. Learn the fundamentals Pressure, Level, Flow and Temperature measurement, instrumentation drawings and also PLC programming and/or Fluid Circuits.

Although counter intuitive, the UEE 40420 Certificate IV in Electrical Instrumentation is the entry level qualification. Even if you are an experienced instro you should consider starting on the Cert IV for the following reasons:

  • 10 out of the 11 units you need to complete can later be Credit Transferred towards you Cert III qualification, that is, they are done and there’s nothing else to do. Meaning you haven’t “wasted” any time doing it.

  • You will hold both qualifications just by adding 1 unit.

  • It’s faster to finish the Cert IV, thus giving you new job opportunities earlier.

  • The Cert III is a bigger course (about twice as many units), so it’s “psychologically” easier for someone who can’t study full time to break it down, obtaining the Cert IV in the meantime.

Both course codes refer to the same course: Certificate IV in Electrical Instrumentation. The difference is that the course with the unit UEE40411 has been superseded by the course UEE40420. It means that if you enrol now in a UEE40411, you will get a qualification that is no longer current. Also, if you do not finish your UEE40411 qualification until the 4th of October 2022, you will need to transition to the new qualification with all the bureaucratic implications that might come with it.

We are here to make your life easier and we are very confident about our course, so we decided to do this comparison between (RTO’s) Instrumentation Course providers (Meo Training, Competency training, Volt Edge, Ausinet, Future Skills, EIM Training, PMV Training, Techskills Australia and Skills Lab):

Finally, Meo training always makes sure that the trainers are fully qualified and experienced in both Electrical Instrumentation and Training. Our practicals are extensive, relevant to industry needs and students will have access to equipment from leading manufacturers: Siemens, Endress & Hauser, Rosemount, Yokogawa, Foxboro by Schneider Electric, Beamex and Merian amongst others.
