The Design Reference Group
In February , we invited industry to join us for a series of workshops , to understand the impact of the COES process on the lives of people who work with it .
We gathered scenarios and from them , we developed a list of ‘ pain ’ statements representing the current COES experience .
Volunteers from the workshops formed a Design Reference Group ( DRG ). Made up of 33 industry practitioners , the DRG meet with the project team every three weeks to review progress and keep ESV grounded in the day-to-day experience of electrical workers , contractors and their teams and electrical inspectors .
‘ Being part of the Design Reference Group gives me an opportunity not to complain about things but to provide constructive criticism to improve the things that I would like to see changed .’ David Shields , Licensed Electrical Inspector
The feedback gathered from the DRG will continue to help shape the design – the digital experience for users of ESVConnect COES from early 2019 .
Key conversations
Topics discussed in each meeting held throughout April to July 2018 covered the following .
»»
Revised COES process Stages in the certification process have been clarified , as have the roles of responsible persons within each stage . We also discussed digital enhancements including attachments , templates , pre-filled data , notifications and alerts .

Agile delivery Working on the pain points to build a better future . We are actively addressing the pains identified in the COES industry workshops . Using an agile project methodology , we incorporate feedback provided directly from the DRG as ESVConnect is configured and tested .
This provides a responsive approach that allows for future enhancements .
The digital experience Our conversation with the DRG continues to inform features of the user experience .
Working closely with the DRG , the Project Team has designed , configured , and presented the following features to the group for feedback .
»»
Certificate of compliance − prescribed and non-prescribed
»» Address directory
»»
Description of work − including a list of common electrical installation work types to select from
»» Dashboard − interface design
»»
Review and amend − opportunities for Technical Supervisors
»»

Connecting with people in regional Victoria This September , the ESVConnect Project Team members will join Manager of Audit COES Keith Van der Zyden , as ESV travels through regional Victoria and presents to Licensed Electrical Inspectors and TAFE teachers on changes to the Wiring Rules .
The team will provide an update on our progress with ESVConnect COES and will be available to speak with attendees who may have questions or comments .
This is the first step in our regional engagement plan , which will scale up as we approach to go live .
