The Master Electricians Accreditation program provides an industry leading program that recognises and rewards superior performance in six key areas (modules) of an electrical contracting business.
The program focuses on Quality and Safety:
To formally recognise quality, safety and best practice in the electrical contracting business, Master Electricians has developed an industry generated and recognised Accreditation Program.
Those who attain accreditation are recognised as an Accredited Master Electrician (AME) and can officially use these credentials in their advertising.
Other benefits include:
It’s all done via an a new online self-assessment tool, designed to help you measure and benchmark your performance in six key areas (modules).
To be eligible you need three things:
For a subscription of just $20 week, you can access the Accreditation Program. Your subscription can be paid monthly or annually. It’s up to you.
If you have run a contracting business or have experience in a senior contracting role, you will have an appreciation of what is required to become accredited. The Assessment is split into six modules, with different points weighted to each.
All modules align to Australian standards where applicable.
A maximum of 100 points can be awarded for successful completion of all modules.
A minimum of 60 points is required to become an Accredited Master Electrician (AME).
It is expected to take 3-4 hours to complete the online self-assessment tool.
You can undertake the online self-assessment in one sitting, or several sittings as the online tool can be saved and resumed at your convenience (always hit ‘save’ – not ‘submit’ – until you are ready to provide it to MEA or your most senior staff member).
As you complete the online self-assessment tool, you will be provided with instructions on what to do if you do not meet the requirements of a question.
If you don’t meet certain requirements, you can implement the changes needed and then go back and re-answer when you are ready. The point system is “active” and continuously updates.
Remember you have 12 months to gain your initial 60 points!
If you need help or training contact us.
All existing Accredited Master Electricians have been transferred to the new program and have to achieve the minimum 60 points required to maintain Accreditation.
Once you achieve the required points, MEA will continue to work with members to provide support and ensure that the Accreditation system evolves in line with industry and professional needs.
