All electrical work in the home needs to be carried out by a licensed electrician. Unlicensed electrical work is not only unlawful in Australia; it could also pose a serious threat to the health and safety of you and your family.

Licensing of electricians is done by the appropriate state and territory licensing authorities. Depending on where you live, electricians may have a class attached to their licence. This defines what type of electrical work they are legally able to carry out. The contractor’s licence will detail the class they hold, alongside their name, registered address, licence number and expiry date. There may also be a special class for workers undergoing training to become an electrician. In most cases any work undertaken by a trainee must be supervised by a fully licensed contractor.
