Course overview

Course overview

Increase your employability by building foundation skills in an engineering field with this practical entry-level course. This qualification will give you the confidence to pursue an engineering apprenticeship or undertake further study in design and drafting.

As part of the manufacturing and design industry, engineering offers the opportunity to be involved in broad-based skills areas driven by technology and design. Employers will increasingly need workers to be multi-skilled and equipped to move across industries to meet demand.

This course will give you foundation skills to operate tools and equipment to produce and modify objects. You will learn basic welding skills, communication skills, and explore career options in the engineering and manufacturing industry. This course is centred around a basic engineering project that integrates the skills you learn just like in the workplace.

This certificate will set you on the path to pursue an apprenticeship in a wide range of engineering jobs including fitting and turning, sheet metal fabrication, boilermaking, welding, casting and moulding, and diesel, mechanical or electrical fitting. You may also look for work as a trades assistant, or choose to develop your design and drafting skills through a traineeship or further study.
