This course is designed for experienced welders working or seeking employment
in the manufacture or repair of boiler, pressure vessel, pressure piping or
high quality welded applications.
You will develop the theory and practical skills required to meet the assessment
requirements specified in Australian Standard 1796-2001 which will (depending
upon the 1-9 welding certificate undertaken) be certified to weld high quality
applications on plain carbon and/or low alloy steel plate and pipe sections.
This course can be delivered and assessed on-the-job, off-the-job or a blend
of both options.
The duration of this program of study will vary depending on the competency
unit(s) and/or welding certificate 1-9 undertaken.
There are no formal educational requirements for entry into the units of
competency in this Statement of Attainment.
Students requiring welder certification against Australian Standard 1796 will
need to meet the entry requirements specified in Sections 2 & 3 of the standard.
It is essential the RTO teaching sections ensure these entry requirements are
met prior to enrolling students in either this Statement of Attainment 17431 or
the TAFE Plus Statement 17622 Assessment Program.
When you have completed this course you will be eligible to receive the unit/s
of competence and granted a welding certificate 1-9 as defined in Australian
Standard 1796-2001. You will also be eligible to enrol in other courses in the
Metal and Engineering Training Package MEM05.
Completion of competency standards units from this course will enhance your
career progression under the Federal Metal and Engineering Industries Award.
A TAFE NSW Certificate IV or Diploma could give you up 6 to 12 months advanced standing in a university degree and some Advanced Diplomas offer even more credit.
Choosing a TAFE to University Pathway at North Coast TAFE is a great way to get practical ‘job ready’ skills and then gain entry to a university at an advanced stage.
More information can be found on our TAFE 2 uni page on our website.
Why study something again if you already have the skills and knowledge? Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is about helping you get your qualification faster and getting you to where you want to be!
Working with one of our RPL assessors we’ll review your life and work experiences as well as any previous study you may have done to confirm just what we can match up with your current course of study.
Note: Some short, licensing or compliance courses, eg Food Safety for Supervisors or First Aid are not granted RPL as demonstrated competency is required by regulatory authorities.
