MEM40105 - Certificate IV in Engineering

Course Details

Course Summary

This apprenticeship is designed to deliver higher level engineering industry skill outcomes with multiple exit points between trade and post trade levels. Competencies can be drawn from the three broad engineering streams including mechanical, electrical/electronic and fabrication as well as other streams within the competency standards. This apprenticeship would be appropriate where employers require the apprentice to use a greater range of skills than provided for the base trade outcome. The qualification packaging has been developed on an assumption that competency will be developed through an integrated combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies such as those delivered through a formal apprenticeship. The qualification may also be achieved through formal skills recognition assessment processes. The course is only available through specific organisations who require their employees to complete this as a Higher Engineering Trade Qualification under User Choice or Fee-For-Service. Currently only available to Glencore Coal Assets and Score Group.

Student Outcomes, Career Opportunities and Occupations

The Certificate IV in Engineering specifies the competencies required for employment as a Higher Engineering Tradesperson or a Special Class Engineering Tradesperson - Level II in mechanical, electrical/electronic or fabrication trade disciplines. The job role involves application of additional skills in the learner's trade or cross skills from other trades. Job roles may include the design, assembly, manufacture, installation, modification, testing, fault finding, commissioning, maintenance and service of equipment and machinery, the fabrication of structures and assemblies, manufacture of sheet metal work, as well as use of relevant machinery, equipment and joining techniques. Machinery and equipment can include fluid power systems, stationary and mobile equipment, instruments, refrigeration, and the use of computer controlled machine tools.

Employment outcomes related to this qualification are found in a wide variety of manufacturing and engineering related sectors as well as Higher Engineering Tradesperson or a Special Class Engineering Tradesperson - Level II related roles in other industries.

This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required to work as an Engineering Tradesperson - Mechanical within metal, engineering, manufacturing and associated industries or other industries where Engineering Tradesperson - Mechanical work.

The qualification has been specifically developed for apprentices in the above trade. The qualification packaging has been developed on an assumption that competency will be developed through a combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies such as those delivered through a formal apprenticeship. The qualification may also be achieved through formal skills recognition assessment processes.

This qualification is usually completed over a 20 week period over four years, however, as it is competency based, it may be possible for learners to complete their training sooner if they have reached the required skills level.

While a Minimum of 73 POINTS must be completed, the duration of study will depend on electives, study mode & training plan selected. Typically the program is delivered over 4 years. There are 4, 3-4 week blocks of on-campus training, verification & some assessment will also occur in the workplace.

Certificate III in Engineering:

1-4 years duration.

970 nominal hours

692-724 delivery hours according to elective competencies undertaken by the apprentice.
