    Course description and aims

    This course is designed for experienced welders working or seeking employment
    in the manufacture or repair of boiler, pressure vessel, pressure piping or
    high quality welded applications.

    You will develop the theory and practical skills required to meet the assessment
    requirements specified in Australian Standard 1796-2001 which will (depending
    upon the 1-9 welding certificate undertaken) be certified to weld high quality
    applications on plain carbon and/or low alloy steel plate and pipe sections.

    This course can be delivered and assessed on-the-job, off-the-job or a blend
    of both options.

    The duration of this program of study will vary depending on the competency
    unit(s) and/or welding certificate 1-9 undertaken.

    Course outcomes and careers

    Completion of competency standards units from this course will enhance your
    career progression under the Federal Metal and Engineering Industries Award.

    Recommended Pathways

    The entry requirements for students in this Statement of Attainment requiring
    a welding certificate/s 1-9 are clearly stated in Section 2 & 3 'Pre-Examination
    Requirements' in Australian Standard 1796-2001 'Certification of Welders and
    Welding Supervisors'

    Students requiring entry would normally be expected to be working as a welder or
    seeking employment as a welder in a boiler, pressure vessel, pressure piping
    industry or in an enterprise where high quality welding is carried out.

    On completion of this Statement of Attainment students may proceed to higher
    level qualifications within this training package as explained in Section 7.1
    of this document.

    Those students who wish to seek recognition for a specialist welding
    certificate/s 1-9 as specified in Section 1 of AS1796 will need to successfully
    complete the TAFE Plus Statement 17622 Assessment for AS1796 Welding
    Certificates 1-9. Statement 17622 is an Assessment Program that enables
    students to seek mutual recognition from the WTIA for a given certificate/s.

    Articulation

    When you have completed this course you will be eligible to receive the unit/s
    of competence and granted a welding certificate 1-9 as defined in Australian
    Standard 1796-2001. You will also be eligible to enrol in other courses in the
    Metal and Engineering Training Package MEM05.

    Expected Outcomes

    This Statement of Attainment is designed for people who are employed as Welders
    or who are seeking employment as a certified welder in a pressure vessel,
    pressure piping or an allied industry where high level welding competence is
    necessary.

    The units of competency contained in this Statement of Attainment program
    specialise in welding to code standards. In this instance, participants will be
    assessed in accordance to the requirements specified in Australian Standard
    1796-2001. Welding certificates covered in this Standard are:

    * Certificate 1 and 1E - Manual Metal Arc Welding of Plate using general purpose
    welding electrodes.
    * Certificate 2 - Manual Metal Arc Welding pipe using general purpose welding
    electrodes.
    * Certificate 3 and 3E - Manual Metal Arc Welding plate using hydrogen
    controlled welding electrodes.
    * Certificate 4 - Manual Metal Arc Welding pipe using hydrogen controlled
    welding electrodes.
    * Certificate 5 - Manual Metal Arc Welding and Gas Tungsten Arc welding pipe
    using hydrogen control welding consumables.
    * Certificate 6 - Gas Welding pipe.
    * Certificate 7 - Gas Tungsten Arc welding pipe.
    * Certificate 8F - Flux Cored Arc Welding plate and pipe.
    * Certificate 8G - Gas Metal Arc Welding plate and pipe using solid wire welding
    consumables.
    * Certificate 9 - Automatic welding of plate.

    For further information relating to the above welding certificates please refer
