Certificate II in Engineering

National ID: MEM20105 | State ID: AA49

 

Are you looking for a career making and fixing all things mechanical?

When you complete the Certificate II in Engineering (Mechanical Fitter and Machinist Pre-Apprenticeship) you'll greatly improve your chance of getting a mechanical fitting or machinist apprenticeship in industries such as mining, automotive, or hydraulics.

You will gain the skills and knowledge to make machines, parts, and tools, work with pumps and hydraulics, using workshop machines, hand and power tools, measuring, technical drawing, and workplace health and safety.

Your qualification prepares you for roles such as:

The successful completion of this qualification provides you with the opportunity to become a trades assistant or gain an apprenticeship in the metals and engineering sector mechanical fitter or machinist metal trade area. You will need to be employed and registered as an apprentice or trainee before you can commence apprenticeship/traineeship training.

The successful completion of this qualification provides you with the opportunity to become a trades’ assistant or gain an apprenticeship in the metals and engineering sector in the mechanical fitter or machinist metal trade area. You will need to be employed and registered as an apprentice or trainee before you can commence apprenticeship/traineeship training.

Many employers and Group Employer Schemes contact North Metropolitan TAFE throughout the year with a view to offering apprenticeships to students. Graduates of the Certificate II in Engineering have a greater chance of obtaining an apprenticeship than those without this qualification, because they have the knowledge, skills and competency that employers require.

Local full time students

Course fees are made up of two components, tuition fees and resource fees.

Tuition fees are determined by multiplying the course fee rate by the nominal hours, which is the number of hours in which an average student could be expected to complete each unit. They are not the hours of training or instruction.

Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by NMT to be used by students during the course.

Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount has been shown. You will be given the exact amount of your fees at enrolment. Part time student fees will vary depending on the number of units you are enrolled in.

Please note, you may also need to buy textbooks or equipment for your course.

For details see the indicative fees list here.

International Students

If this course is available for International students you will need to pay your course fees to TIWA when you accept your offer.
