This course contains a blend of both theory and practical assessments. When completing
the theoretical questions, you will be answering questions that require your thoughts
and input from the concepts covered. You will also work on scenario-based projects and
could potentially build your portfolio containing digital assets (photography, audio, video,
text), that can later be used when applying for jobs and/or demonstrating professional


Please note the packaging rules: To be awarded the MEM40119 Certificate IV in Engineering units of competency to a value of 132 points must be achieved, chosen as outlined below: Completion of core units of competency (totalling 33 points) Completion of elective units of competency to a minimum value of 12 points from Group A Completion of elective units of competency to a maximum value of 87 points from Group B to bring the total value to 132 points. Appropriate Group B elective units to the value of 14 points may be chosen from this Training Package, other endorsed Training Packages and accredited courses where those units are available for inclusion in Certificate III and Certificate IV qualifications. Only select units that would be suitable for occupational outcomes in a higher engineering trade environment.
