If you enjoy working with your hands, are physically fit and able to visualise how an object should look from a drawing, you may have the aptitude for working as a fabricator. Fabrication engineering tradespersons cut, shape, join and finish metal to make, maintain or repair metal products and structures. They may produce moulds or patterns for metal castings, apply coatings and work with a variety of materials.

A fabrication engineering tradesperson may perform the following tasks:

  • Examine detailed drawings or specifications to find out job, material and equipment requirements.
  • Cut, roll, shape, bend, mould, spin, heat or hammer metal products to fabricate parts or sub-assemblies. 
  • Heat treat metal parts and components. 
  • Set up and/or operate hand and machine tools, welding equipment or computer numerically controlled (CNC) machines.
  • Assemble parts and structures by lining up and joining them by welding, bolting or riveting.
  • Finish products by cleaning, polishing, filing or bathing them in acid solutions, or by applying protective or decorative coatings.

Your qualification prepares you for roles such as:

An indenture is required with an employer to continue apprenticeship studies. Completing this pre-apprenticeship qualification improves your chances of gaining an apprenticeship. An on-the-job component of the qualification may also enhance employment prospects.

For information about jobs and pathways, please see joboutlook.gov.au

Further study opportunities:

As some of the off-the-job training is covered in the qualification, it is possible to achieve a Certificate III of trade studies in shorter time, providing the on-the-job competencies are met to the employer satisfaction.

Successful completion of the pre-apprenticeship qualification may exempt you from approximately one third of off-the-job apprenticeship subjects, depending on the career path you choose.

Additional subjects can be studied to add to qualifications, enhancing job prospects and employment opportunities.

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.
