Entry Requirements

Participants 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

  1. Students will receive a Result of Assessment within 21 days of completion of each unit/module or within 21 days of the ‘close of study’ date.
  2. Students who successfully complete all required units/modules will receive their qualification and an Academic Statement itemising all units/modules successfully completed.
  3. Following receipt of written advice from the student (or teacher) that the student does not intend to complete the full course, the student will be issued with a Statement of Attainment listing all units/modules successfully completed.

Successful completion of one theory and one practical unit from from the Welders Certification course will lead to the person to possess a range of engineering skills including mechanical, electrical/electronic and fabrication, at the post Certificate lll trade level which is designed to improve your employment opportunities in the engineering field. Upon successful completion of an accredited unit, students will be issued a Statement of Attainment for the accredited unit of competency MEM05026C ‘Apply welding principles’. Both theory (ACC00006 - MEM05026C - Apply welding principles) and practical (ACC00005 - Welding Certification - Practical) must be completed to gain your Welding Certificate.
