Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician

RTO: Global Energy Training Solutions

Employer: Evoenergy

Tessa completed a Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician with Global Energy Training Solutions. She is employed by Evoenergy and has worked for them for over 10 years.   

Tessa has been interested in the electrical industry since high school. Tessa wanted a mentally and physically challenging job and the electrical industry was the perfect option for her.  

Initially securing a non-trade position at Evoenergy as an Electrical Network Inspector after school, Tessa spent the next six years learning about the distribution network. When the opportunity arose, she started an apprenticeship. 

“During my apprenticeship my self-confidence and my work has grown exponentially, and I am very proud of that,” Tessa says.  

Today, Tessa is a mentor to newer apprentices within the business. She has participated in advertising campaigns promoting safety in the sector, as well as campaigns encouraging women to apply for apprenticeships. This included television and radio advertisements, radio interviews for International Women’s Day, and interviews for social media and magazines to promote Evoenergy and women in trades. Tessa enjoys the opportunity to share her experience.  

Tessa’s employer describes her as hard working, talented and an inspirational spokesperson for the industry.
