Cert II ESI Powerline Vegetation Control & WA CoP Authorised Persons training

29th of January – 2nd February, 2024

Interlink is delivering their next lot of Cert II ESI/CoP Authorised Persons training from the 29th of January – 2nd February. This is a 5 day block of training in which participants will commence their Cert II ESI which they deliver in line with the Code of Practice requirements in WA. Mon-Thurs are theory based sessions delivered at Forrestdale, and Friday is a practical session which will be delivered locally (location will be confirmed prior to the day). A log book is issued at the end of the week, in which participants are required to log 150 hours of work under supervision cutting around Powerlines before they are able to receive their certificate.


Attached is a copy of the booking form for this course which outlines the units that are delivered, and which streams are available and at what cost. There is funding available for this qualification under a traineeship, however there are some eligibility criteria so you will need to speak with your AASN to confirm if you are eligible to receive the funding for the Cert II ESI.


To secure a place for this course (places are strictly limited and they do fill up) please fill in the attached ESI booking form and email it through to Jade who will assist with the rest of the enrolment documents.

Certificate III in Arboriculture AHC30820

29th and 30th of January, 2024 

Interlink is commencing their first group for 2024 on the 29th and 30th of January. This will be delivered at their Forrestdale Office. Streams on offer for this qualification are Climbing, EWP or Works Coordinator, with the expected delivery to be 18-24 months, and off-the-job training to be approximately 1-3 days every 6-8 weeks.


Interlink does have funded training available for this qualification (which is recognised as an Apprenticeship in Western Australia), meaning if you sign up your employee/s to an Apprenticeship with a local AASN (such as MEGT) you should be eligible for Government Funded training, which significantly reduces the cost of this qualification for you. As Arborists are on the Skills Shortage list Australia Wide, there may also be additional incentives available to you for signing up an employee to this qualification, which you can discuss with your AASN.


Should you wish to sign up your employees for this new group in January, please sign the attached Cert III Arb booking form and email it back to Kat, who will then send through the rest of the enrolment documentation.
