Course Overview

Are you someone who loves to share your knowledge? Are you good at explaining concepts in an easy to understand way? Then a career in supervising might just be for you!

In this course, you’ll learn how to best instruct and train welders to the highest level of quality and safety. You’ll master the skills needed to be an effective teacher in an interesting combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies, making you an important member of your workplace.

You could even put yourself in the running for exciting management opportunities!

Taught two days a week over a one year period, there is flexibility in the days you choose to study, so you can easily fit this course into your life commitments - because we understand one size doesn’t fit all.

And when you finish the Certificate IV in Engineering, you’ll be qualified to share your knowledge with others, and there are few things more rewarding than that!

You might also like to take your studies further by completing a Diploma of Engineering, or an Advanced Diploma of Engineering (not offered at TAFE Gippsland). These courses will enhance your employment opportunities and allow you to take on more senior roles.

There has never been a more valuable time to up-skill, and becoming a supervisor in your industry will help you get ahead of the pack in what will be a rewarding and successful career.

Please note, students must have an Engineering Trade qualification or extensive experience in the Engineering environment and a minimum of one AS1796 approved Welding Ticket to undertake this course.

Times

Tuesdays and Thursdays preferred 8am to 4:30pm. Yet this can be negotiated between the facilitator and the student. Course duration is 1360 hours, how ever you are able to choose your electives from 2660 hours of units but you must no exceed the 1360 hours.

Qualifications and Recognition

Upon successful completion of this course participants will be eligible to be assessed for a National Certificate of Competency.

Career Opportunities

While there is no qualification entry requirement, it is assumed that the learner is either already a tradesperson with access to structured on and off-the-job training, or is an apprentice under an Australian Apprenticeship arrangement where the mix of on and off-the-job training would be specified in the Training Plan associated with the Contract of Training between the employer and apprentice.

This qualification may be accessed by direct entry. Credit for relevant units of competency achieved should be granted towards this qualification for those who have completed MEM30205 Certificate III in Engineering - Mechanical Trade, MEM30305 Certificate III in Engineering - Fabrication Trade, MEM30405 Certificate III in Engineering - Electrical/Electronic Trade, MEM30605 Certificate III in Jewellery Manufacture, MEM30705 Certificate III in Marine Craft Construction, MEM30805 Certificate III in Locksmithing, MEM31010 Certificate III in Watch and Clock Service and Repair, or other relevant qualifications.

Opportunities for Further Study

MEM50105 Diploma of Engineering and Advanced Diploma of Engineering certificates could be achieved after completing MEM40119 Certificate IV in Engineering.
