MEM30305 Certificate III in Engineering – Fabrication Trade (Welding)

Description

This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required for employment as an Engineering Tradesperson – Fabrication within the metal, engineering, manufacturing and associated industries or other industries where Engineering Tradespersons – Fabrication work. The qualification has been specifically developed to meet the needs of apprentices in the above trade. The qualification packaging has been developed on an assumption that competency will be developed through an integrated combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies such as those delivered through a formal apprenticeship. The qualification may also be achieved through formal skills recognition assessment processes. 

This qualification is designed to provide an industry recognised skills profile related to trade work as an Engineering Tradesperson – Fabrication.

Assessment of some units of competency must, where indicated, include evidence of the candidate’s performance in a productive work environment where there is a sufficient range of appropriate tasks and materials to cover the scope of application of those units. All outcomes must reflect the standard of performance inherent in the job.

Occupational titles that this qualification is suitable for may vary and include:

  • metal fabrication tradesperson,
  • boilermaker,
  • 1st class sheet metal worker,
  • 1st class welder,
  • moulder,
  • foundry tradesperson and
  • patternmaker.

COURSE INFORMATION

Packaging Rules

The minimum requirements for achievement of the MEM30305 Certificate III in Engineering – Fabrication Trade (Welding) are:

  • completion of all core units of competency listed below, and
  • completion of Group A Fabrication stream units listed below to the value of at least 40 points, and
  • completion of units from Group B Certificate III Trade specialisation units listed in Appendix 1, Volume 1 of the Training Package, to bring the total value to at least 73 points 

Points associated with prerequisites count towards the total (refer to units and prerequisites listing in Appendix 2, Volume 1).

Appropriate Group B elective units to the value of 16 points may be chosen from other endorsed Training Packages and accredited courses where those units are available for inclusion at Certificate III. Note that the elective units listed below include all of the units that are approved for selection from the MEM Training Package for use in this qualification. This meets the NQC requirement that one sixth of the total units must be able to be selected from other qualifications in the same Training Package.

Registered Training Organisations must seek a determination from Manufacturing Skills Australia in respect of the allocation of points values for units of competency drawn from other Training Packages or accredited courses.

Only select units that would be suitable for Fabrication Trade occupational outcomes.
