Campus:

Moorabbin

The Certificate IV in Engineering - Welding Ticket Pathway will provide you with a greater trade base and chance to develop post-trade level skills in welding techniques.

Designed for qualified tradespeople or those experienced in the industry, you will learn intermediate Arc, MIG, TIG welding techniques and advanced skills to become a coded welder. Coded welders earn higher wages than typical metal fabrication tradespersons.

The course prepares you for one or more welding certificates (1-9) as issued by Weld Australia (WA) - formerly known as Welding Technology Institute of Australia.

Completing certain units of study will allow you to obtain the necessary skills to undertake one or more of the Welding Certification exams with WA and to apply your skills immediately in industry as you work towards completing the course.

On completion of MEM40105 Certificate IV in Engineering, you will have gained all the required units of competency to prepare you for theoretical and practical examinations for a Welders Certification Ticket issued by Weld Australia.

You will have enhanced career opportunities in fields associated with fabrication, welding. You will be equipped with the skills to pursue opportunities in the metals industry, post trade and associated areas.


Student testimonials

 

The biggest skill I’ve gained while studying at Holmesglen is the rapid rate at which I can take in knowledge and learn new ways of doing things. This is due to the encouragement and support the engineering teachers have given me to push myself.

Axel



The course covers a huge range of topics, all of which allowed me to acquire a range of skills to plan, design and build what it is I might imagine. The best thing is that you get coached how to do things properly.

Engineering and Fabrication Open Days

Do you love work that is physical and technical? Consider a practical career in the fabrication trades and become an expert in welding engineering. At Holmesglen, we're all about hands on learning, so our fabrication workshops are equipped with industry standard machinery. Our continued investment in equipment means that you learn on the equipment you will find on the job, so when you finish your studies you are work safe and work ready. Visit us on Open Days at 2.30pm and talk to our teachers about a career in Engineering. You will be shown around our workshop and possibly having a try at designing something with our computer controlled plasma machine that you can take home. After the tour our teaching staff will be available to answer any further questions about the courses and the industry. You can also come along to find out more about our VET in Schools course, the Certificate II in Engineering Studies. Our experienced teachers will provide you with information on how we can support you to successfully complete units towards your Year 11 and Year 12 studies as well as highlight future study pathways and career opportunities. Registrations are essential for sessions to go ahead.
