Course Overview

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, we have adapted our course delivery to now encompass a combination of remote and flexible delivery methods. This includes easy to navigate online tutorials, video conferencing (classroom simulation) as well as face-to-face practical assessments and work placements – where safe and practical to implement. Therefore, you will require access to the internet and a computer to undertake this course.

Our flexible model allows you to continue to study in a safe, guided and fully supported manner with continued access to all learning, personal and wellbeing supports.

You will be advised by your facilitator on a case by case basis in relation to practical and work placement assessments, as some flexibility will be required during this challenging time.

Enrol today! Start next week.

The Certificate III in Engineering allows students to enter the shipping and mining industries as a fabrication tradesperson with CAD drafting skills.

This course is an Australian Apprenticeship, combining paid work with training. Mature age people can also apply for apprenticeships.

The Certificate III in Engineering - Fabrication Trade is a part-time course spanning 3 years, offered at our Broadmeadows and Richmond campuses within our dedicated training facilities, comprising of new and modern machinery, ensuring what you learn on campus reflects industry standards. As a large educational provider, our students also have access to a wide range of student support services and resources such as the Library and Learning Centre as well as our very own Employment Centre to ensure that your study experience is a positive one.
