Certificate III in Engineering - Fabrication Trade (Blacksmithing)
Engineering - Fabrication Trade course details
Course description and aims
This course is for blacksmithing apprentices and has replaced the former
Certificate III in Engineering - Fabrication trade course.
You will learn how to work with metal forging and heat treatment processes. This
course will allow you to specialise in industrial blacksmithing applications on
a broad range of ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Specialisations include:
anvil, power hammer and drop forging processes, use and application of various
welding processes and general fabrication techniques such as marking out,
forming and assembly of metals.
The course duration will vary depending on the training pathway agreed to
between you, your employer and the TAFE college. A standard pathway will
consist of off-the-job training (usually three years) plus additional work
