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.
It is recommended that applicants have completed Year 11 or equivalent, due to the literacy and numeracy requirements of engineering studies.
Prospective students will need to attend classes a minimum three days week to complete any units that will (under the new qualification) have work placement hours and their pre-requisites by December. However if you are already working in industry and can meet the requirements of the new qualification, this might not be an issue.
If you cannot attend for the required duration, you should enrol for the 22470VIC Certificate II in Engineering Studies Pre-apprenticeship.
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.
Recognition of prior learning
You may be able to shorten the length of your chosen course by measuring skills acquired through work, life experiences or qualifications obtained from formal studies or training. AQF qualifications and statements of attainment issued by another registered training organisation will be recognised by Holmesglen. Read more about Recognition of Prior Learning, Credits and Advanced Standing.
Qualification and recognition
On successful completion, you will receive the MEM40105 Certificate IV in Engineering qualification.
Connections with industry
Manufacturing and engineering is one of the largest employment sectors in Australia. Currently, employer demand for engineering graduates is high, with over a third of all job vacancies related to the field.
This course will give you the skills to work in the design, assemble, manufacture, installation, modification, testing, maintenance and service of equipment and machinery including;
- the fabrication of structures and assemblies
- manufacture of sheet metal work, as well as use of relevant machinery, equipment and joining techniques.
