Overview of the competition

Electricians carry out installation, operation and maintenance work in industrial facilities, electricity installation companies and as contractors. Depending on the role, electrician's duties range from electricity supply installations, lighting and equipment installations at properties, and installation, programming, repair and customer service related to low voltage systems.

The competition tasks are designed to measure vocational competence across the broad job description of electricians. The tasks are designed to simulate real-world electricians' tasks as closely as possible.

Competition type

The competition is done individually.

Competence requirements

The competition tasks are based on the national Level 3 (excellent) requirements of the Vocational Qualification in Electrical and Automation Engineering.

The competition is based on the components of the Vocational Qualification in Electrical and Automation Engineering and on real-world workplace requirements for young employees. Graduates who complete the vocational qualification can work as electricians.

In electrical installations, special emphasis is placed on safe working practices, compliance with regulations governing the industry, and on the high standard of work results. Attention is also paid to work methods, the ability to interpret drawings, awareness of materials and costs, cooperation skills and documentation.
