Course Overview

Are you already studying your apprenticeship in Engineering? Are you thinking of specialising in a certain area? There has never been a better time to up-skill.

Specialising in fabrication will put you ahead of the game in your future workplace and this course is the perfect way to do it.

You’ll combine on-the-job learning strategies with formal theory, while also learning about metal fabrication, forging, founding, erecting structural steel, metal spinning, metal polishing, electroplating, sheet metal work, welding, and using specialised computers and equipment.

What’s even better, is if you have prior knowledge of fabrication, you may also achieve your Certificate III through a formal skills recognition assessment process – how good is that?!

Taught over three years, this course could not be more flexible. You can study full-time or part-time, and it also combines on-campus and workplace training, so you put your new skills into action right away.

And when you finish your Certificate III in Engineering - Fabrication Trade (Apprenticeship), there are so many options available in the workforce. You’ll be able to gain real-world experience and earn a living as a Boiler Maker/Sheetmetal Tradesperson, a Certified Welder, or a Welding Supervisor and Inspector, just to name a few!

You might also like to take your career further by studying a Certificate IV in Engineering. This course will further your skills and increase your employment opportunities in the future. We’ll support you with everything you need to complete that course, if that’s the path you choose.

So, if you’re looking to gain the skills and knowledge required to work in engineering, manufacturing and the associated areas where fabrication work is needed, a Certificate III in Engineering - Fabrication Trade (Apprenticeship) is the perfect platform to get there.

Please note, students must be a in a registered apprenticeship to undertake this course.
