The EEA in partnership with Lumen, Energyedge , WSP and the Industry Reference Group, continue to work diligently working to develop the ESI Overhead Line Design Micro-Credential.

Micro-Credential Details

The micro-credential comprises eight modules, with the base documents being AS/NZS 7000:2016 Overhead Line Design and the new HB 331:2020 Overhead Line Design Handbook. The modules are:

OLD-020 - Conductor Solutions (technical module)

OLD-030 - Insulator Solutions (technical module)

OLD-040 - Pole Solutions (technical module)

OLD-050 - Cross-arm Solutions (technical module)

To complete the micro-credential a candidate must complete the *first and *last modules (OLD-010 - Line Design Principles, and OLD-080 - Line System - Portfolio Based Assessment) and at least one of the six technical modules.

Note: The modules may be taken independently (without the need to enrol in the micro-credential), and the EEA offers a bulk discount to anyone who wishes to enrol in all the six technical modules.


The course has been designed to support entry into the micro-credential for those who either have not studied math for quite some time, or who feel they need to refresh their basic algebra and trigonometry knowledge before beginning one of the micro-credential modules.
