If you enjoy working with your hands, are physically fit and able to visualise how an object should look from a drawing, you may have the aptitude for working as a fabricator. Fabricators work in either a domestic or commercial setting making roofing products, air conditioning ducts, electrical switchboards, hospitality equipment such as range hoods and benchtops; and may specialise in stainless steel custom fabrication using the latest welding and polishing processes.

Many employers now prefer apprentices to have completed a pre-apprenticeship and this qualification will give you a better chance of gaining an apprenticeship and a flying start in learning a trade.

Your qualification prepares you for roles such as:

The successful completion of this qualification provides you with the skills and knowledge to apply for employment as an apprentice Heavy Fabricator (boilermaker) or Light Fabricator (sheet metal) in the metals and engineering sector. You may also seek employment as a trade’s assistant in this sector. Graduates of the Certificate II in Engineering have a greater chance of obtaining an apprenticeship than those without this qualification, because they have the knowledge, skills and competency that employers require.

Further Study Option(s)
