Explore a range of exciting possibilities with this entry-level qualification and build foundation skills for your future in electronic design, programming, or industrial design. The Certificate II in Autonomous Technologies is a Start TAFE Now (STN) in schools course.
February intakes open to Year 10 and 11 students. July intakes open to Year 10 students only, due to the 18-month duration.
Completion of the BKSB (Basic Key Skills Builder) online literacy and numeracy assessment prior to enrolment, unless the student has completed an equal or higher level course. It is highly recommended that students have attained a Sound Achievement (SA) result in year 10 numeracy and literacy subjects or equivalent prior to enrolling in this course. There are no other entry requirements.
Resources required: It is recommended that you have access to a reliable internet connection to access CQUniversity's online learning management system, and a computer with up-to-date software, including Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat Reader. This equipment and software is available for use at all CQUniversity locations.
CQUniversity online students must have access to a Windows 10 or 11 computer. Some tasks cannot be done on a Mac M1 computer. You will also require access to personal stationery and a USB or external hard drive (minimum 1TB).
Need to know: The course is 18 months (6 school terms) in duration. Compulsory face-to-face attendance is required 1-day per week at a CQUniversity campus.
