Certificate II in Renewable Energy Pathways

Tasmania is rapidly moving to a renewable energy future. This is a pivotal point for the state’s economy, and one that builds upon the legacy of the hydro-electric scheme. Green hydrogen, pumped hydro and wind power will form the future mix of energy output in Tasmania and create further market opportunity. Projected job gains and skill requirements will necessitate strong engagement with the education sectors and community to generate enthusiasm for, and awareness of the many opportunities emerging.

Artibus Innovation, a Tasmanian owned and national Skills Service Organisation, received funding to support the Tasmanian Government to develop a course to improve entry pathways to roles in renewable energy. This course will help establish a pathways certification for emerging new industry entrants. The development of the course will be undertaken in partnership with the Tasmanian Government and SDG Align.

SDG Align has been engaged to manage, maintain and promote the course.

Project Status

The VET concept form relating to this course, H2TAS001 Certificate II in Renewable Energy Pathways, has been approved for development by ASQA.   This is the first step in the accreditation process and we are now working to development the course and look forward to its publication into the near future.
