Axiom Compliance Learning are proud to offer the appropriate training to achieve the knowledge and skills to carry out tasks required for testing and inspecting of portable electrical equipment. Industry commonly refer to this work as test and tag. Axiom Compliance Learning can deliver two types of test and tag training which both meet the requirements of Australian Standards, WHS Regulations and the relevant Codes of Practice including 'Managing Electrical Risks in the Workplace. All training is structured and successful completion determined by assessment of competency.

Some states of Australia require people to be licenced to do test & tag work. A certificate of attainment is required to apply for a licence in QLD. Most other states do not require this level certification including NSW. Students who choose this level of training are required to complete the two units competency listed above. Students who wish to undertake the accredited test and tag training should enroll in the standard test & tag course listed on the course calendar and request the accredited course in the additional notes section.
