This program comprises the Light Fabrication stream of the Certificate III in Engineering - Fabrication Trade.
Get the skills you need for the job
Master all sheet metal working techniques throughout this apprenticeship you can apply straight on-the-job.
Traditionally known as sheet metal work, light fabrication will give you the skills to perform tasks ranging from manual metal arc welding (MIG) and geometric development to drawing interpretation.
You could use these skills to construct air-conditioning ducts, sinks, electrical cabinets and apply them through on-the-job training.
And get the job done right
Take your skills to the next level that qualifies you as a sheet metal worker with specialised training in interpreting drawings, cutting, forming, shaping, welding, finishing, polishing, geometric development and computing technology.
