Certificate III in
Engineering – Fabrication
Trade (Sheetmetal)

Australian Skills Group

Offered as an Apprenticeship pathway, the MEM30319 Certificate III in Engineering – Fabrication Trade (Sheetmetal) provides the skills and knowledge for the production, manufacture and repair of a wide range of light metal products using thin, flat sheets of metal. The metal sheets are mainly of zinc-covered steel, stainless steel, vinyl covered steel, copper and aluminium and usually are not more than 3mm thick. A range of equipment would be used, usually including welding equipment (mig & tig) guillotines; rollers; pan brakes; materials cut machinery; electric and/or hand shears; soldering & brazing equipment presses.

The pathway selected by ASG contains 29 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 (Sheetmetal) qualification consists of 29 units of competency:
