Certificate II in Engineering

This certificate provides a pathway for senior school students into an apprenticeship in the fitting and machining trade of the metal fabrication and welding industry.

You will receive ‘on the job’ practical and classroom training in a small team setting. Training days are negotiated with your school.

Certificate II in Engineering will give you a range of employable trade skills. You may then choose to further your training with an apprenticeship in Certificate III in Engineering Fabrication or Welding.

This trade training can lead to employment in the Construction, Oil and Gas, Light Fabrication, or Mining Industries.

Course Delivery

The course is delivered over one year, part time as students complete their NTCET..
Contact hours are from 8.30am to 5pm on suitable days as negotiated with your school.

Training is offered at MCC FACT located on the corner of Amy Johnson Ave and McMillans Rd.
