Course Overview

The Certificate IV in Engineering is the recognised qualification to become a qualified Mechanical Engineering Trades Worker. This course gives you higher level skills to graduate as a specialist tradesperson.

Get the most up-to-date skills with the latest technology. Learn computer numerical control (CNC) for brake pressing, rolling, and plasma cutting, and programmable logic control (PLC) for running process machinery.

Focus on maintenance, fabricating products to industry standards, or machining and tool making. Our Trainers are experts and business owners in their fields, and you'll learn the practical skills and higher level knowledge to help you succeed in the workforce.

This course can be delivered on campus or as an Apprenticeship.

This course is available as part of the Free TAFE scheme for eligible students.
