Course Overview

The options are endless when you choose this advanced, post-trade qualification. Not only will you have the opportunity to choose where you’d like to specialise, but you’ll also study the latest information about Engineering from industry professionals.

Choose to specialise in mechanical, electrical, fabrication, diesel fitting, or fitting and turning. Depending on which specialisation is right for you, a Certificate IV in Engineering will enhance your existing skills in design, assembly, manufacture, installation, testing, commissioning, fault finding, modification, and servicing equipment.

You’ll step into a successful career when you can effectively use the latest machinery, equipment and joining techniques. Level up your engineering knowledge with a Certificate IV today.


Tuesdays and Thursdays preferred. Yet this can be negotiated between the facilitator and the student.
