Course Overview

This course is aimed at individuals employed in the engineering sector, working in a role that includes the welding and fabrication of raw materials in order to create a product.This course will appeal to you if you are a Sheet Metal Workers, Plater / Fabricator or a Welder. It is also ideal for those who have the skills but are?yet to obtain formal recognition, in the way of a?recognised qualification. As this is a Level 3 course, the individual should have more responsibility than someone working at Level 2. They should ideally be organising, leading, or have work of a more complex nature.

What will I learn?

Although you may?have some prior knowledge and skills in the engineering sector?(or possibly in a welding or?fabrication role) this course will confirm?your understanding of the theory behind this subject matter and the ability to put this theory into practice. You will be?challenged and stretched to fill?the gaps in your?knowledge.

Study, Assessment and Qualifications

Entry Requirements

The learner must be employed full-time in a welding and fabrication role.

They must be working in a role with more?responsibilities and carrying our work of a more complex?nature, than those working at Level 2.

Additional Costs and Information
