This is a VET Delivered to Secondary Students course (previously VETiS) and can only be completed as part of your VCE or VCAL program.

Engineers are interested in how things work and are employed to design, invent, create, maintain and improve everything from buildings to bridges and aeroplanes, to plastics and computers.

This course aims to provide pre-employment training and pathways into the engineering manufacturing or related industries and entry into the wider engineering industry.

It will provide you with competencies in a range of engineering skills such as welding, basic machining, fabrication and use of hand and power tools.

This course is suitable if you have an interest in air-conditioning and refrigeration, CAD, electrical, mechanical, structural engineering, fabrication and panel beating.

Fabrication tradespeople learn to make and repair metal fabricated products, including the shaping, cutting and welding of metal.

They are often engaged in projects that involve heavy metal design in construction, mining, manufacturing, power generation and shipping industries.

At present, employer demand for engineering tradespeople exceeds supply.

The manufacturing and engineering area is the largest employment sector in Australia, with over one third of all job vacancies for trade qualified people.

Completing this course can provide you with a pathway into a highly rewarding career in a wide variety of industries


The Certificate II in Engineering Studies pre-apprenticeship course is designed to provide pre-employment training and a pathway into the engineering industry.

It will provide you with a range of skills such as welding, reading and creating engineering drawings, basic machining, fabrication, and use of basic hand and power tools.

Engineers are interested in how things work and are employed to design, invent, create, maintain and improve everything from buildings bridges and aeroplanes, to plastics and computers.

Fabrication trades people learn to make and repair metal fabricated products, including the shaping, cutting and welding of metal. They are often engaged in projects that involve heavy metal design in construction, mining, manufacturing, power generation and shipping industries.

This new qualification has been specifically developed to reflect the minimum training requirement specified for employment in the engineering and fabrication industry.
