Electrotechnology Readiness Assessment

The Readiness Assessment (RA) is a national electrical industry specific aptitude test designed to assess the potential of aspiring electrical apprentices, covering 15 areas of numeracy and literacy required to be successful in an electrical apprenticeship.

By undertaking the RA through an online Learning Management System, potential apprentices are able to demonstrate that they have the required level of Language, Literacy and Numeracy (LL&N) for the job and at trade school. Results highlight areas where improvement is required along with links to remedial resources.

Experience has shown that prospective apprentices who have demonstrated the LL&N scale identified by industry as ‘best equipped to achieve competency’.

To prepare prospective apprentices for the RA, preparatory resources and a practice test are available which closely align to the formal assessment.
