Our Courses

ASP Level 1 and Level 2 Pathways training are tailored for those seeking to work on or near the NSW energy distribution network. Level 1 training covers the fundamentals of electrical safety and basic procedures, while Level 2 training advances into more complex tasks. Both are crucial for anyone aiming to become an Accredited Service Provider (ASP).

Generally, you need to complete ASP refresher training annually. This ensures your knowledge stays current with industry standards and practices and in turn, will maintain your accreditation.

In addition to our ASP Pathways and refresher courses, we offer various other training options such as pole top rescue, crane and plant safety, and more. Please contact us directly or browse through our website to learn more about IAC Safety Services.
