Authorisation is a formal approval for an employee of an accredited company. Authorised workers must adhere to our rules, procedures, practices, and standards.

Each authorisation outcome is specific to the task/s being performed and requires the worker to have and maintain currency for various training competencies.

  3. Upload evidence of having completed and maintained currency in the required training competencies to the worker’s profile.
    • Training evidence can be uploaded before or after completing the Electrical Safety Rules course, however must be uploaded prior to carrying out work on or near Evoenergy’s network.

Non-accredited training courses
