The welding units of competency available cover the processes of Manual Metal Arc, Gas Metal Arc, Gas Tungsten Arc, Oxy Acetylene, Submerged Arc, Brazing and Soldering. The competencies are offered at routine, advanced and code standard levels.
In addition the course offers units that support the welding function such as OH&S, Quality, Cutting and Using Hand Tools.
Statements of Attainment will be issued upon your successfully completing units.
The successful completion of a prescribed range of these units, together with any acknowledgement of your existing qualifications and any informal prior learning, will allow you to attain your Diploma of Engineering - Advanced Trade - Welding.
The course may also be undertaken by people who do not hold trade qualifications. To gain the Diploma of Engineering - Advanced Trade - Welding, such people will need to undertake the equivalent of 1560 hours of training, less any credit that may be provided for any existing qualifications and informal prior learning.
There is a widely recognised shortage within the region and much wider, of competant welders. The successfull completion of this training has the potential to allow you to gain employment and obtain advancement in a range of industries.
The course is offered flexibly on a part time basis. An Engineering Tradesperson will need to allow approximately two years to achieve the complete qualification.
Further Study Options
The successful completion of the Diploma of Engineering - Advance Trade - Welding can lead to the Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology, which in turn can lead to engineering studies at degree level.
Although BRIT offers certain units leading to the Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology, it does not currently offer a full course, and students would need to complete the Advanced Diploma at another institution.
You will be assessed as part of this course.
Recognition of Prior Learning
Recognition of your current qualifications and prior learning: BRIT has processes to give you credit for relevant units from your prior study, and to assess your prior learning against units in a course.
