MEM40105 Certificate IV in Engineering (Fluid Power)

National ID: MEM40105 | State ID: WT44

Are you looking for a hydraulically or pneumatically powerful career?

Hydraulics is a vast and diverse industry and the Certificate IV in Engineering (Fluid Power) will give you the ability to work safely and confidently with hydraulic and pneumatic systems and components. When you complete this qualification you'll have specialist skills in hydraulic systems, hydraulic fitter or technician, hydraulic systems designer, or hydraulic equipment sales.

This is a post trade qualification. You must have a current MEM30205 Certificate III in Engineering Mechanical Trade (Mechanical Fitter ZA) or (Fitter and Machinist ZB) qualification, or equivalent to study.

Depending on your Certificate III qualification you may be required to complete Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or a Credit Transfer process (costs apply) to meet the prerequisite units required for the Certificate IV. If you have been working in a trade for more than five years but do not have a Certificate III trade qualification you will need full RPL.

Third and fourth year apprentices can enrol and be issued with a certificate when they complete their trade studies.
