  • Objectives
    These new engineering courses will equip you with comprehensive skills and knowledge to work in steel and metal industries. Each course has units of competencies selected to provide relevant skills in engineering production. The courses may include an introduction to computer use in relation to engineering work, use of hand and power tools, engineering science, fabrication techniques and quality concepts. Certificate II graduates will need to be indentured by an employer before they continue their training as an apprentice. Certificate II in Engineering graduates will be prepared to enter into an apprenticeship in the fitting and machining trade or the metal fabrication and welding trade.
