Certificate IV in Engineering

National ID: MEM40105 | State ID: WB58

 

Are you looking to design a career in manufacturing?

When you complete the Certificate IV in Engineering (Computer Numerical Control) you'll have specialist skills in engineering, machining, and manufacturing, opening up a career as a manufacturing supervisor, production manager, or team leader.

You will gain the practical skills and knowledge to set up, program, inspect, and operate NC and CNC machines, create 2D and 3D models using computer aided design, write 2D and 3D program code, interpret technical drawing, and workplace health and safety.

This is a post trade qualification. You must be able to produce current certificate III, trade papers, qualifications, or equivalent to study.

Your qualification prepares you for roles such as:

Engineering Associates and Metal Workers

When you complete the Certificate IV in Engineering (Computer Numerical Control) you'll have specialist skills in engineering, machining, and manufacturing, opening up a career as a manufacturing supervisor, production manager, or team leader.

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.

Third and fourth year apprentices can enrol and be issued with a certificate when they complete their trade studies. Students who wish to complete this course need to have the prerequisite, core and other units required for the certificate IV, credited via an RPL or Credit Transfer process.
