We deliver a number of non-accredited, network related training courses. These courses include:

  • Evoenergy Electrical Safety Rules (ESR) covering how to apply the Electricity Supply Industry (ESI) safety rules, codes of practice and procedures for work on or near electrical apparatus, and access procedures to work on or near electrical network infrastructure
  • Service and Installation Rules

COVID Impacts: Evoenergy training for Authorisation & Accreditation

Evoenergy is focused on providing a safe and reliable energy supply and ensuring the health and wellbeing of our people and the community.

With our Greenway depot and worksites closed to all external visitors, Electrical Safety Rules and Service & Installation Rules training has been temporarily cancelled.

We understand the completion of this training may be critical to your business operation and to minimise this impact, Evoenergy is implementing the following.

ELECTRICAL SAFETY RULES

Initial training

  • This training will be temporarily changed to an online format via a virtual classroom using Webex.
  • Enrolments will be available from Tuesday 24 August using the Learning Sessions module in Beakon for classes commencing 27 August 2021.
  • We will prioritise the enrolment of Learners who had not previously completed this training and were impacted by the recent cancellations. Further information will be provided separately.

Refresher training

• Training that expires between 1 August 2021 and 30 November 2021, will be extended to 28 February 2022.

SERVICE AND INSTALLATION RULES

An exemption will be applied to practical assessments until 01 August 2022. During this time, completing the S&I Rules eLearning module via Beakon will be satisfactory for initial and refresher training.

AUTHORISATIONS

While pre-requisite training for authorisation and accreditation has been impacted by COVID restrictions, the postponement and or cancellation of training does not change the Evoenergy requirement that any person working on or near the Evoenergy network must be employed by an Evoenergy accredited company and be appropriately authorised.

To ensure those accredited businesses required to provide essential services in the ACT can continue to do so, the following extensions will be applied in Beakon to training related to authorisation compliance.
