MEM20413 Certificate II in Engineering Pathways

MEM20413 – Certificate II in Engineering Pathways is intended for people interested in gaining employment in an engineering or related working environment, for example Boilermaking, Welding, Fitting, Machining, Sheetmetal and Engineering.

This qualification delivers broad-based underpinning skills and knowledge in a range of engineering and manufacturing tasks which enhance the graduates’ entry level employment prospects for apprenticeships, traineeships or general employment in an engineering – related workplace.

The learning program is designed to develop trade-like skills.  As an example, it is about being introduced to welding, how it can be used to join metal and having the opportunity to weld some metal together.  Similarly, with machining, the focus is on using engineering tools and equipment to produce or modify objects.

The learning program is centred around a major project that students develop over the course of their studies using the skills they learn.

Career Opportunities

This qualification is offered as a pre-vocational full time course before entering the Engineering/Metal industry.   Once employed you can enter into an apprenticeship in either MEM30205 Cert III in Engineering – Mechanical Trade or MEM30305 Certificate III in Engineering – Fabrication Trade.

Job roles and titles relevant to this qualification may differ between industry sectors but may include:

  • Trade Assistant in manufacturing and engineering
