Course Details

Access Permit Recipient


Initial and Refresher available.
Access Permit Recipient workshops address underpinning knowledge and responsibilities of both the issuer and recipient of an access permit. This workshop acts as both initial and refresher training, with a refresher required every 2 years.


Essential Energy controls access to work on or near our network via the use of a documented access permit procedure. An Access Permit is a form of authorisation which allows access to work on, or near, or to test electrical apparatus.
This workshop is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills required to act as an access permit recipient. The completion of this training is to ensure the correct use of the Access Permit form, identify the conditions under which it is issued, and to assist with providing a safe work or test environment for persons working on or near Essential Energy’s network.
