MEM40105 - Certificate IV in Engineering


This course covers the skills and knowledge required for employment as a Higher Engineering Tradesperson or a Special Class Engineering Tradesperson (Mechanical) - Level II, Special Class Engineering Tradesperson (Fabrication) - Level II, Special Class Engineering Tradesperson (Electrical/Electronic) - Level II within the metal, engineering, manufacturing and associated industries.

The qualification has been specifically developed to be delivered to people who are existing engineering tradespersons or delivered to apprentices in an Engineering Trade who choose to study at a higher level during their apprenticeship.  It is generally anticipated that students will develop competency through an integrated combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies such as those delivered through a formal apprenticeship. As trainers will be required to work with students and their employers it is preferable for students to be under a Training Contract.

You will be assigned an ATEC Case Manager who will work with you and your employer to develop a Training Plan that suits your needs and those of the business.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is assessed in the first instance to ascertain the units of competency required to meet the qualification requirements.
