Safe Working Practice (SWP) Tutoring

Safe Working Practice (SWP) 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 SWP exam is usually completed first, out of the LEA exams. It assesses that candidates can safely disconnect and reconnect electrical equipment.

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

Students are shown and taught the routine required to pass the SWP exam. This includes an understanding of safe work practice, job safety analysis, and working on electrical equipment. TTA students will gain practical experience in testing, disconnection and reconnection of electrical equipment. TTA students practice with training on equipment that is similar to equipment used in the exam.


To be eligible to sit any of the SWP, LET, or LEP exams, the following prerequisites must be met:

  • Signed Authorisation form from a Registered Training Organisation; or
  • Electrician's Supervised (ES Class) licence; or
  • 'L' licence (Supervised Workers Licence) from Apprentices who have been signed out of their Apprenticeship; or
  • Electrician's (E Class) licence. This is required for REC Technical Assessment; or
  • Trades Recognition Certificate (for an Electrician) issued by Trades Recognition Australia; or
  • Letter from ESV indicating eligibility to sit for the licensing assessment.

See the ESV website for the most up-to-date list of prerequisites.
