A warm welcome from the Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering Industry Training. We offer TVET stream programmes in the electrical, electronics and automation trade sectors in our endeavor to address the diverse technical training requirements of the electrical, electronic and process control areas of the industry in Fiji.

Our training force possess a wealth of actual field experience earned in some the major industries of Fiji, and we conduct industry surveys to ensure that our training course are current and relevant to that of the industry requirements by continuously modifying our training content. Our competency based training delivery ensures a harmonious transition of our participants at the completion of our training to the industry workforce.

Our training programmes have gone through decades of development and modification based on industrial requirements giving them flexibility such that they can easily be tailor-made to suit specific requirements of some of the industries training requirements. The programmes currently offered by our department comprises of the following: Electrical Engineering, Consumer Electronics and Trade Certificate in Industrial Automation. In-built into NTPC trade programs is a focused emphasis on practical training and assessments which is a major component of CBT training.

To meet dynamics of the contemporary labor market, the department also offers specialized courses in the evening mode and in-house programmes which can be specially designed for the customer’s requirements.

All NTPC developed programmes are taught by NTPC staff with appropriate trade qualification who possesses relevant industrial experience which prove to be current and very relevant to both industry and new entrant participants. We look forward to serving the needs of the industry by providing well qualified and experienced trainers in the relevant trade sectors.

Course Introduction - Electrical Engineering Training Programme

The electrical training programme encompasses the fundamental knowledge, skills and accepted industrial practices in the electrical industry in Fiji. The programme consists of 9 core units and 10 specialised units. Upon successful completion of the programme and the required work experience, the participants should be able to demonstrate the relevant and current work skills to align themselves to an Electrician Class III National Trade Test certificate.

This programme can also articulate into the Certificate IV in Electrical Engineering programme in College of Engineering Science and Technology with some bridging courses. Participants completing this programme and also enter the industry workforce at trade assistant level until further experience the qualifications are obtained to transit into full tradesperson level.

Entry Requirements
A basic understanding of the English language with the desire to undertake practical training is required off all participants wishing to enroll into the program. Recognition would also be granted to mature aged applicants without any formal educational qualification but who have relevant work experience and have prior learning.
