BOOK NOW to attend the 2018 NECA Awards 

Don't miss out! Visit your state chapter's website to register your attendance for the 2018 NECA Excellence Awards.

NECA is committed to showcasing and rewarding excellence through the NECA Excellence Awards, NECA  Trade Teacher Award and NECA Apprentice Awards - the most prestigious awards in the Australian electrotechnology industry.

  • Excellence Awards - provide the only Australia-wide opportunity for all NECA members, whether a large company or a small business, to showcase the quality, excellence and innovation of their projects and their staff to their peers, clients, industry, government and the community. There are thirteen different categories to give all NECA members a chance to win.
  • Apprentice Awards NECA recognises the essential role apprentices play in the future of our industry and showcase the outstanding contribution an apprentice can make to the projects they work on and their employer's business.  The Apprentice awards are open to fourth year apprentices, or tradespeople (within 12 months of completing their apprenticeship) and offer three different categories.
  • Trade Teacher Awards recognise the outstanding contribution made by trade teachers in continuously raising the standard of education and training in our industry.


How it works

Nominations for Excellence and Apprentice Awards are initially submitted at a Chapter level in each state or territory with the winners from each Chapter recognised at a local event and progressing to the National Awards. The National Excellence & Apprentice Awards finalists and winners are announced and presented with their awards at a gala dinner at the end of the year along with the winner of the Trade Teacher Award.
