Our skill sets are a type of short course that provides certification for specific workplace skills.

Skill sets are made up of one or more units of competency which link to an industry need or regulatory requirement, such as a licence. When you complete a skill set, you will receive a statement of attainment. In some cases this may count towards a higher qualification with further study. 

If you would like to undertake an apprenticeship or traineeship with North Metropolitan TAFE, you need to contact the Department of Training and Workforce Development's Apprenticeship Office.

The Apprenticeship Office manages the apprenticeship and traineeship system in Western Australia and helps employers, apprentices and trainees through every stage of their course.

If your current Certificate or Diploma has more than one stage (semester) this is you! Your campus Client Services team will contact you and tell you how to organise payment and enrolment into the next stage of your course. Keep an eye on your emails, including your spam folder just in case.

NOTE If you are unsure if your Certificate or Diploma is continuing, login to your Student Portal and check your Coursework Summary area. This is where it will list the units needed to complete your Certificate or Diploma.

You can always contact Client Services if you are still unsure, or if you are concerned you’ve missed an email about your continuing enrolment.

If you have just completed your course and looking to further your studies with another qualification, this is you! To enrol in further studies you will need to lodge an application for the higher level Certificate or Diploma through TAFE Admissions.

NOTE If you are unsure if you have completed your current course and are ready for further studies, login to your Student Portal and check your Coursework Summary area. If all your units are either passed or enrolled, you are now ready to apply for further studies. You can always contact Client Services if you are still unsure.
