    I have completed 99% of cert 111 in Electro technology and wish to know more about getting the required information you need from me ,as Fair trading will not recognise all my modules to cover disconnect reconnect , even though I have a letter from the Head teacher from T.A.F.E.that has verified the legitimacy of my Transcripts stating that I well exceed all that is required to disconnect and re connect.

    Do I have to re do this all again I spent 3 years of night courses covering all this and being tested with passes on all this stuff just because I failed part of a communications module which I could not get to redo therefore I was unable to finish the course and complete the capstone test.When I went a time again to re enrol in T.A.F.E they no longer did the communications course that I failed and could not offer me a replacement module which I found unacceptable. All I want is the disconnect reconnect to get the (Excluding electrical) of my refrigeration contractors licence. Can you help here or please let me know what you need from me.
