The successful completion of this qualification provides you with the skills and knowledge to apply for employment as an apprentice mechanical fitter or fitter and machinist in the metals and engineering sector. You may also seek employment as a trades assistant in this sector. 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.
