  • 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. At the apprenticeship level, the Certificate III in Engineering (Fabrication Trade), students may receive practical training in reading and interpreting drawings and specifications, structural fabrication, setting up and operating welding equipment, development of cylinders, conical sections and transition pieces. Certificate III in Engineering (Fabrication Trade) graduates will exit with trade qualifications and may gain employment as a boilermaker, fabricator or a welder.
  • Entry requirements
    If you would like to study the Certificate III in Engineering (Fabrication Trade) you must be currently employed as an apprentice or trainee under a training contract. You will need to undertake a Pre-training Review to determine your current skills and literacy and numeracy abilities. This Review will form the basis of your Individual Training Plan.
