Course Overview

Those looking for employment in the Engineering industry will benefit from this qualification. A Certificate III in Engineering will give you the skills and knowledge required to work in Engineering, manufacturing and the associated areas where fabrication work is needed.

If you’re studying your apprenticeship in Engineering, specialising in fabrication will put you ahead of the curve in your future workplace. You’ll combine on-the-job learning strategies with formal theory while completing the qualifications you need to become an independent and skilled worker.

Learn about metal fabrication, forging, founding, erecting structural steel, metal spinning, metal polishing, electroplating, sheet metal work, welding, and using specialised computers and equipment. If you have prior knowledge of fabrication, you may also achieve your Certificate III through a formal skills recognition assessment process. Become a specialist in your industry today.
