Whilst we pride ourselves on our hands-on training, we have had to adjust most of our courses for study from home and remote learning during the COVID-19 restrictions. This means courses will be delivered using a range of methods including online learning, virtual classrooms, workbooks and direct contact with your teacher.
Given the government restrictions that are now in place to reduce the spread of coronavirus in Australia, we expect this new model of study will continue until the government makes changes to these restrictions.
Take your career to the next level with this advanced, post-trade qualification. Use your engineering skills to specialise in computer-aided design, computer-aided manufacturing, hydraulics, pneumatics and welding certificates.
You can negotiate and select from the offerings below to build a learning pathway that will develop your skills and knowledge in the following:
Upon successful completion, you will be equipped to gain employment as a foreman in the engineering industry.
Why don’t you come along to our next course info session to find out everything you need to start your learning journey? You can chat with our teachers, tour our facilities, learn more about the course, find out about the application process and get your questions answered by our course experts.
You must have completed an engineering or related apprenticeship to apply for this course.
Your application will include an interview to determine if you are appropriate for this course pathway. We will take into consideration any related experience, eligibility and career progression.

This course involves accredited units. You will be required to complete assessment tasks to demonstrate your underpinning knowledge, skills and attributes to meet the course outcomes. A combination of written, oral and practical assessment strategies will be used in either a classroom, online or workplace environment.
Where units require demonstration of skills in a workplace environment, you will have the opportunity to do this either in your own workplace (where appropriate), through a practical placement, or by using one of the Institute's simulated workshops/classrooms. Detailed information about the types, conduct and dates of assessments will be provided in advance. You will also be provided with information about the opportunity for reassessment and appeal.
Once you have applied for your chosen course, you will receive a thank you email from South West TAFE with a few steps to help process your enrolment.
