Have you completed your Certificate III in Electrotechnology, and are now looking to take the qualification further? Do you want to get something different out of your apprenticeship? Are you looking for a course that will give you job security, but is also out of the ordinary?
If you answered ‘yes’, then a Certificate III in Instrumentation and Control will put you in the lead, as you safely and effectively operate advanced engineering systems.
You already have all the foundation skills you need to complete this course, and with both qualifications combined, you’ll know how to select, install, set up, fault find, repair and maintain specialised systems and devices for measuring and recording physical/chemical phenomenon.
This course offers self-paced learning, making this course extremely flexible, because we understand you might not be able to make all set class times.
Taught over a period of 2-3years both in the workplace and on campus, you’ll attend dedicated class blocks of a week (scheduled throughout the year), which will combine face-to-face practical exercises as you master your skills.
And when you successfully complete this course, there is so many career options for you. These include working as a Dual Trade Electrician/Instrumentation Fitter, or even an Instrumentation Fitter – the limit to where your career can go is endless.

Opportunities for Further Study
Mandatory entry requirements
To enter into this course a certificate III in Electrotechnology is recommended as eight of the initial units are CT or RPL with work place experience. The CT units are:
- UEENEEE101AApply Occupational Health and Safety regulations, codes and practices in the workplace
- UEENEEE102AFabricate, assemble and dismantle utilities industry components
- UEENEEE104ASolve problems in d.c. circuits
- UEENEEE105AFix and secure electro technology equipment
- UEENEEE107AUse drawings, diagrams, schedules, standards, codes and specifications
- UEENEEE137ADocument and apply measures to control OHS risks associated with electro technology work
These 8 units, as well as the 2 RPL units listed in the Sequencing, will have to be completed through the Electrical course first, before starting the Instrumentation units.
