Spotters registrations

ESV’s offices are closed until further notice but we remain operational with personnel working remotely. ESV will not be printing licence cards during this time.


Spotters must carry a copy of their statement of attainment for the Spotter’s course. This will be accepted as evidence of holding a valid Spotter’s registration during this closure period. Spotter cards will be posted out at a future date.


ESV manages the registration of Electrical Spotters and produces registration cards.

Registration lasts for three years and requires cardholders to maintain First Aid and CPR certification with CPR refreshed annually.

To renew registration every three years and receive a new spotter’s card with an updated expiry date, applicants must complete the spotters training again and provide proof the training was recently completed.

Spotters unable to access required training

Measures put in place to slow the spread of coronavirus  have limited the availability of the required training.

Consequently, spotters will be unable to attend refresher CPR and First Aid training to maintain their currency and update their registration.

Interim position

While physical distancing directions are in place, registered spotters will:

  • Not be required to maintain currency with the annual CPR and three-yearly First Aid training requirements, and
  • Be permitted to continue spotting activities where their registration has expired after 16 March 2020.

When physical distancing directions are lifted, spotters will have three months to ensure currency with the annual CPR and three-yearly First Aid training requirements to update their registration where required.

This information will be updated as the situation evolves.
