    Attaining your Certification IV in Engineering (Welding) opens up many opportunities, including
    careers as a:

    • TIG Welder
    • Welder
    • Welding Instructor
    • Pressure Welder
    • Advanced Fabrication Technician (Structural)
    • Welding Supervisor

    To be eligible to study a Certificate IV in Engineering (Welding), students must:

    • Be undertaking an apprenticeship. Apprenticeships under state funding are required by the relevant state funding authority to:
      • Be employed in an industry workplace.
      • Have access to workplace equipment as part of their training and assessment, and;
      • Have access to workplace supervisors as part of their training and assessment.
    • Have adequate language, literacy and numeracy skills. At the Outsource Institute, we assess students’ ACSF levels and determine any necessary support requirements to ensure you can be successful in your studies.

    Fee-for-service students must be employed with access to a relevant workplace, but industry experience is not necessary. Students do not need access to a supervisor, but may be a supervisor themselves.

    Students must hold pre-requisite units prior to commencing particular units in these qualifications. Current information about the prerequisite units can be found on the qualification information on training.gov.au.

    You may be eligible for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or Credit Transfer (CT) if you have supporting evidence for any prior education and work experience. These credits or units can either reduce your study load or shorten the duration of your course. If you believe you are eligible for recognition of prior learning, please contact Student Support after enrolment so they can arrange for one of our dedicated trainers to assess your eligibility.
