What does MySkills provide for Grid Skills Learners and their Approvers?
MySkills is an online tool that allows Learners to:
- browse for Grid Skills training courses by training name or type, such as Substations, Transmission Lines
- request a training session, or be placed on a waitlist if the session is full, or be placed on interest tracking and be notified when a course become available
- view their training records, such as registration details and completed training sessions
- print certificates for successfully completed training
- receive email notifications, such as:
- when their training or waitlist requests have been approved or denied
- when new sessions are available.
MySkills also allows the Learners’ Approvers to:
- approve or deny their Learners’ training requests
- run training reports, such as who has completed what training
- receive email notifications, such as approving or denying training requests
- enrol their Learners into training courses on their behalf.
Grid Skills course acceptance guidelines
Some Grid Skills courses require Learners to have met certain prerequisites – they need to have successfully completed other Grid Skills training, and hold current First Aid and CPR certificates, or qualifications from other external training providers. Any prerequisite requirements will be listed in the description for each training course.
Grid Skills reserves the right to deny training requests (for example, if the Learner doesn't hold the necessary prerequisites, or if Grid Skills needs everyone in the session to have the same level of knowledge or ability for safety reasons). If training is denied, Grid Skills will let the Learner know why.
