|COVID-19: You can study with confidence knowing that all programs are being delivered safely observing safe distancing measures. Every course has different safe distancing requirements so enquire for more details about the course you are interested in.|
Studies can be customised depending on the students capabilities and skill sets within the units.
ATTENTION: As much as we’d love to offer more, we can only offer one Free TAFE course per person. If you’ve already enrolled and commenced, or enrolled but didn’t complete a Free TAFE course at any Victorian TAFE in the past you will NOT be eligible for another and will need to pay tuition and materials fees when you enrol. Reach out to us if you think this is you.
Have you already completed your Certificate I, II, or III in Engineering Boiler Making or Welding? Are you now looking to specialise in something more?
Then a Certificate IV Engineering will help you gain specialist skills in mechanical, electrical, fabrication, diesel fitting or fitting and turning.
You’ll enhance your skills in in design, assembly, manufacturing, installation, testing, commissioning, fault finding, modification, and servicing equipment, allowing you to step into a successful career where you can effectively use the latest machinery, equipment and joining techniques.
Taught full-time for one year, you’ll be able to customise your studies based on your abilities and skills - meaning you won’t be stuck learning things you already know, but rather up-skilling in exciting new areas you’re passionate about!
And when you finish this course, the options for employment are endless, thanks to your advanced qualifications. You’ll be able to work in a range of mechanical or boiler making roles using your knowledge to gain real-world experience and earn a living, while you take the time to decide where you’d like to next take your career.
This could mean studying a Diploma of Engineering (not offered at TAFE Gippsland), or an Advanced Diploma of Engineering (not offered at TAFE Gippsland). Both these courses will further enhance your skills, giving you more specialised qualifications and opening even more doors in the workforce.
Go on, level up your engineering knowledge with this Certificate IV and help yourself open more doors in an industry that really is booming.
Yallourn Campus: Tuesday and Thursday 8.00am to 4.30pm.
Sale Fulham Campus: Monday and Tuesday 8.00am to 4.30pm.
