    you probably don;t need any qualifications for that

    there are plenty of guides online https://www.wired.com/story/how-to-build-a-pc/ on how to build one

    and plenty of people do it as a hobby

    Re: Electrician

    I want an qualification in computer hardware. As i thought electrician's work with electrical stuff so would that be close enough.

    Re: Electrician

    I think you are confusing a trade description of 'electrician' with a electronics type vocation?

    Electricians deal with the distribution of supply from power stations to the home and there are niche components of what a typical "electrician" may get up too in those environments. The only 'computer' stuff they may deal with (that i can think of) would be adjusting power factor correction units, solar invertor's, PLC things; but typically an average domestic or industrial electrician will just plug & play those devices and the real skill of their work lies in how they build their networks of electrical components (eg switchboard to circuit breaker to cable to a power point..) and their knowledge of how what they are building complies with Australian Standards & Regulations.
    If you are interested in computers, you should see Squar3roots link above and/or consider if electrical / electronic engineering is what you are actually thinking about instead. A qualification in "computer hardware" is pretty vague!

    Re: Electrician

    Back in the day there used to be Diplomas & Advanced Certificates in Electrical Engineering (taught at TAFE) that would have electronic units. But i don't know the landscape of Tafe courses these days.. see your school careers people?
