As a registered training organisation, the college will continue to provide on campus training during COVID lockdown as permitted by the Department of Education and Training.

The Electromagnetic Field Testing Technician course provides the theoretical and practical knowledge to conduct electromagnetic field testing of the built environment and provide strategies to address exposure and/or source control and abatement. 

You will learn about the impact of AC magnetic fields and radiofrequencies on human health, identify and quantify the sources of electromagnetic fields that impact the built environment using the latest technological equipment, conduct EMF mapping, explain the inadequacies of the existing exposure standards, and provide recommendations to reduce exposure. The course consists of two subjects (Electricity Fundamentals and Electrobiology) and is approximately 250 hours in duration. Students must complete the Electricity Fundamentals subject online before they are eligible to attend the Electrobiology subject. The Electrobiology subject involves 3 consecutive days with an instructor online (ZOOM link will be provided) followed by 12 weeks of self directed online learning PLUS one day onsite field training (Sydney / Melbourne / Gold Coast / Perth). Upon successful completion, students will receive a nationally accredited Statement of Attainment, the "Certified Electromagnetic Field Testing Technician" certificate and card (to demonstrate to prospective clients they have undertaken a nationally accredited course). The subjects for this course form part of the Advanced Diploma of Building Biology (10194NAT). To download the course guide, click HERE.


You are required to be at least 18 years of age; apart from that, there are no prerequisites and we assume no previous knowledge or experience as an electrician or electrical engineer.


Subject Cost Online /On campus Student Learning Guide Prerequisite
Electricity Fundamentals $795 Online Download No
Electrobiology $1,695 3 day online training (live classes) followed by 12 weeks of self directed online learning PLUS one day onsite field trip  Yes (Electricity Fundamentals)


The assessments have been specifically designed to ensure you have the necessary knowledge and skills to conduct electromagnetic field testing for electromagnetic fields that impact the built environment. These include an online quiz, questionnaire, checklist and report. You will receive a Statement of Attainment following successful completion of the unit of competency.


Total cost is $2,490. Students must enrol and complete the Electricity Fundamentals subject first, before they are eligible to enrol in the Electrobiology subject. The cost includes access to online learning materials (downloadable comprehensive manual, videos of the lectures, access to peer reviewed papers) PLUS 3 days live online training PLUS a one day field trip. Students will be provided with the contact details of their trainer for the duration of the course. Upfront payment for the course is not required, rather you pay as you enrol in each subject. 


Successful completion of the Electricity Fundamentals and Electrobiology subjects will be credited towards the Advanced Diploma of Building Biology (10194NAT).
