Gain welding certification (AS1796) by completing this short course which includes statutory and regulatory requirements, interpret welding terms, codes and symbols, effects of heat treatment, sequencing and planning as well as practical elements in either gas tungsten arc welding, alloy steel pipe, or alloy steel pipe over 270mm diameter. Students who successfully complete one of these units are able to apply for industry ‘tickets’ from the Welding Technology Institute of Australia.
To qualify for the full Welders Certification students will also be required to complete the theory unit, MEM05026C from the short course Welding Certification - Theory in addition to one of the practical units from the short course Welding Certification - Practical listed below:
MEM05042B – Perform welds to code standards using flux core arc welding process (AS1796, WTIA 8F)
MEM05043B – Perform welds to code standards using gas metal arc welding process (AS1796, WTIA 8G)
MEM05044B – Perform welds to code standards using gas tungsten arc welding process (AS1796, WTIA W7)
MEM05045B – Perform pipe welds to code standards using manual metal arc welding process (AS1796, WTIA W4)
MEM05046B – Perform weld to code standards using manual metal arc welding process (AS1796, WTIA 3E)
The fee for each accredited unit in this short course will be $1496.25.

Students need to have a trade background in boilermaking, metal fabrication or fitting trades to undertake this course. To be eligible copies of completed qualification/s which include any pre-requisites must be provided to the teacher prior to enrolment. If students do not hold a trade qualification, students must supply evidence of 200 - 300 hours of welding experience.
It is recommended students complete Welding Certification - Theory (ACC00006) prior to Welding Certification - Practical (ACC00005).
Student Outcomes, Career Opportunities and Occupations
Successful completion of the enrolled unit will result in the issuance of statement of attainment for the chosen unit of competency. Students are also eligible for a WTIA ‘ticket’ and a CQUniversity wallet welding card (both available as an additional cost to the student).
Standard Course Structure
To qualify for the full Welders Certification students will also be required to complete the theory unit, MEM05026C from the short course Welding Certification - Theory (ACC00006) as well as the practical units from Welding Certification - Practical (ACC00005).
Students will need to speak with teaching staff prior to enrolling into a practical units. The practical unit will vary depending on the students desired course outcome.
