Lineworker licensing

Energy Safe Victoria will introduce a new licensing regime for lineworkers from 1 January 2021. This means all currently registered lineworkers are eligible to obtain a licence which will initially be provided at no cost.

Licensing of lineworkers is a priority for the Victorian Government. It ensures lineworkers have met the minimum requirements and understand the complexities of their work.

Register as a lineworker

Lineworkers must register with ESV as soon as possible.

If you have previously registered with ESV, you must now register for a licence by clicking the “Register details” button above.
