Certificate III in Engineering Fabrication Trade (Boilermaking/Welding)

Australian Skills Group

Offered as an Apprenticeship pathway, the MEM30319 – Certificate III in Engineering Fabrication Trade (Boilermaking/Welding) provides the skills and knowledge to work with heavy gauge steel: cutting, shaping, assembling and welding. It also includes the production, fabrication and development of items manufactured from plate materials, generally in steel of varying thickness but can also involve non-ferrous materials. It also requires the construction or repair of metal products by joining parts using a variety of welding methods either manually or by machine.

The pathway selected by ASG contains 30 units of competency but this can be adjusted to meet individual learner needs, provided packaging rules are met. It is available as a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) pathway.


The MEM30319 – Certificate III in Engineering Fabrication Trade (Boilermaking/Welding) qualification consists of 31 units of competency:
