This assessment tool has been developed to provide you with an understanding of the language, math and science knowledge and skills you will need when you enter the Electrotechnology trades.
There is no pass or fail mark; you will receive a score from each section and advice on how to improve your score if necessary.
You can try the assessment as many times as you want until you reach the required level.
The important thing to remember is that these skills and knowledge are vitally important for you to succeed and be safe in the Electrotechnology industry.
Language: It's important to have good reading and writing skills because the Electrotechnology industry is always moving ahead; you need to keep up to date with safety issues, quality standards and technological advances, complete worksheets and provide written records. So no matter which area you work in (and what level of skill and expertise you gain) having good English reading and writing skills will help you succeed.
Mathematics: The basic foundations for all electrotechnolgy workers are good math skills; these skills are used in practical, everyday situations. Just as a builder has to measure his materials an electrician has to measure things like current and voltage. This means you need to be comfortable working with numbers, even if that means using a calculator.
Science: Many of the maths skills you need are closely linked to a basic knowledge of science; you work the numbers within the scientific rules. Many of these 'rules' or 'laws' were written hundreds of years ago after practical experiments conducted by scientists and they haven't changed since. And just like the law of gravity, which means the apples keep falling to earth from the tree, these laws will never change (so you only have to learn them once).
