ESVConnect – Licensing and registration
From late June 2019, all licensing and registration processes will be completed in ESVConnect.
Paper-based applications will no longer be accepted.
A new system – new capability
In ESVConnect you can apply online for an Electrical Worker Licence, Restricted Electrical Licence, Switchgear Worker Licence, ‘L’ Licence, Electrical Inspectors Licence, register as an electrical contractor (REC) or apply to register a cathodic protection system.
ESVConnect will show all your associations with electrical licences and any associations you have with registrations. You can renew your licence or electrical contractor registration online and track the progress of your applications, change requests and licence card replacement requests.
ESVConnect has inbuilt help functions to assist you with the new processes.
- Take a tour – click through help screens demonstrating the main functions of the system.
- ‘Help’ text – on each screen to assist users via step-by-step guidance.
