    I know people think you're mad if you talk to yourself but it might be helpful for future members if you could answer your own question.

    It's a all day course where you sit in class and listen,a guy from major tech went over a booklet about testing on how to do each test.Then we done a pre-test COC,in the afternoon we done the proper test and you can use all the info handed to you for help,it's also multiple choice.
    INFO NOTES-OHS Act 1993
    Earth Leakage Protection
    Testing Electrical Installations
    COC Pre-test
    Then a COC which they go through with you on how to fill it in.
    That's about it,the guy from major tech also has testers on show.

    Hope that helped abit!

    You will be fine,take notes on everything they tell you though,just take your time aswell!You have to wait 4weeks to get your COC result,I'm not qualified here yet,taking forever as im qualified already from Scotland,so there's loads of hassle!

    Good luck Gei, just be weary of a trick question. Like a loop resistance where they have a resistor in the circuit to increase the reading. If it is not right do not sign the COC.
