EEEWSB came into being in 1988 to foster the Electrotechnology Industry and create an Association where issues of the industry could be explored and debated and guidelines developed. Created with both Union and Enterprise representatives and Government input the Association has gone from strength to strength adding other industries to the original group. Today EEEWSB covers seven main industry sectors with several subsections as well.
A key feature of EEEWSB Training Standards is its brokerage, facilitative and intelligence-gathering role. It brings together key industry groups, industry and enterprise practitioners, regulators, technical experts, training experts and the community. This ensures collective ownership and currency of VET products and advice and, improves industrial relations rapport.
