Certificate III
in Engineering - Fabrication Trade

Australian Skills Group

Offered as an Apprenticeship pathway, the MEM30319 Certificate III in Engineering – Fabrication Trade (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.

Job outcomes may include 1st Class Welder; Boilermaker

The pathway selected by ASG contains 31 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 (Welding) qualification consists of 31 units of competency:
