The primary outcome of the Certificate II in Autonomous Technologies focuses on developing the skills needed to adapt to existing and new automated technologies introduced as a result of Industry 4.0. Graduates will demonstrate knowledge and skills required to work in entry level roles within autonomous environments and to undertake further education pathways in a range of technical, engineering, trade and information communication technology and related areas.
Graduates may apply their knowledge and skills and exercise limited judgement while undertaking routine employment tasks and engaging with autonomous technologies and technical systems. These include:
undertaking individual defined tasks with limited autonomy and judgement in accordance with written or oral workplace policies and procedures with some accountability and responsibility for results,
communicating known solutions and information relating to a limited range of predicable and routine problems arising in workplace environments using written, oral and technical communication methods,
applying knowledge and skills to complete basic planning, programming, and the use of technical and computing areas with a focus on autonomous environments.
