Electrician (Supervised) Worker’s (ES)

This licence is only available to people who have previously held a B-Grade licence and have continued to renew their licence every five years.

An Electrician (Supervised) Worker’s licence is issued for a period of up to five years and entitles the holder to carry out all electrical installation work in Victoria under the supervision of a licensed electrician.

This licence must be renewed on time in order to be retained.

If a person does not renew this licence type, eligibility is then required for the Supervised Workers licence.


Refer to ESV’s Licensing fees page for each licence type.

The application fee for the Electrician (Supervised) Worker’s licence includes a $70 non-refundable administration component.

Application fees must be paid at the time the licence application is submitted. Credit card payments are preferred.

Licence renewal

ESV will send a renewal notice to the last known address at least two months prior to the expiry date of the current licence.

Refer to ESV’s Licensing fees page for renewal fees.

It is your responsibility to ensure your licence is current and ESV has your current address and contact details. Renewal must be completed prior to expiry, otherwise your licence will be cancelled. Read more about renewing a licence or replacing a licence.
