Licensed Electrician's Practice (LEP) Tutoring

Licensed Electrician's Practice (LEP) is one of the 3 Licenced Electrician's Assessment (LEA) exams. Passing this exam is a requirement to being granted an 'A Grade' Electrician's Licence by Energy Safe Victoria (ESV). See our LEA overview page for further details.

The LEP exam is usually completed last, out of the LEA exams. It assesses the candidates practical knowledge in electrotechnology.

TTA offers tutoring for those preparing to sit their SWP, LET, and LEP exams.

Students are taught the knowledge required to pass the LEP. This includes an understanding of testing, MEN systems, visual defects, RCDs, switchboard wiring, and metering. TTA students practice with specially developed learning materials, including practice exams that closely mirror the real exam.

TTA students will also gain practical experience in testing, disconnection and reconnection of electrical equipment. TTA students practice with training equipment that is similar to equipment used in the exam.
