This course is specifically designed to cover the skills and knowledge required for employment as a higher level Engineering Tradesperson or a Special Class Engineering Tradesperson (Mechanical) and associated industries, or at equivalent levels in other industries where Engineering Tradespersons work. This course is ideal for tradespeople nearing completion or have completed an apprenticeship, or are experienced in the trade (Fabrication or Fitter and Turner) wanting to broaden their skill set, or move into supervisory roles.
Public students are suggested, but not essential, to have work experience in engineering or have some related qualification. You will learn skills and knowledge within the engineering or related trades, offering the flexibility to further your fitting, machining, hydraulic, pneumatic, CNC, fabrication or welding skills.
Public students undertaking the Certificate IV in Engineering have the option to undertake practical placement, providing opportunity in obtaining ‘real life’ experience and building connections with local employers as part of their course.
