Assessments are designed to provide learners with opportunities to demonstrate they have attained the required skills and knowledge using a range of practically based activities and tasks, as required by recognised standards.
When undertaking the course, you must be enrolled as a VCE/VCAL student at a secondary school.
Prior to enrolment or commencement of training, you will be required to complete a literacy and numeracy assessment and a pre-training interview. These will assist with determining your suitability to the course, verify your training plan and identify any learning support needs.
Qualification and recognition
On completion, students will receive the 22470VIC Certificate II in Engineering Studies.
Connections with industry
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.
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.
The manufacturing and engineering area is the largest employment sector in Australia, with over one third of all job vacancies for trade qualified people.
This course provides pre-employment training and pathways in the engineering manufacturing or related industries, and entry into the wider engineering industry.
These qualification pathways can take you through to a career as a:
• automotive engineer
• electrical engineer/Electrician
• fitter and turner
• manufacturing engineer
• mechanical engineer
