    Course description and aims

    This course is designed to help you enter and maintain a career in the manufacturing industry. The course supports the Certificate III in Manufacturing Technology, specialising in CAD/Drafting. You will learn how to use and apply CAD/Drafting skills to assist in the design and making of manufactured products.

    A career option in Drafting and Design covers both Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) and traditional drafting principles as well as electives in information technology and manufacturing processes and operations. On finishing, you could be employed in a range of roles such as a CAD operator and/or detailed draftsperson.

    This Certificate III course has been registered as a Technology Cadetship that should be completed over a one (1) year period. The Technology Cadetship allows you to be employed and to undertake training at TAFE NSW while you learn on the job.

    After completing this course there are a number of Technology career opportunities and pathways available to reflect the diverse skills needed in the manufacturing enterprises. For more information contact your local TAFE College.

    The eleven (11) units required to achieve in the Certificate III qualification are recognised and given full recognition towards completion of the fifteen (15) units required for the Certificate IV in Manufacturing Technology (CAD/Drafting) qualification.

    Course outcomes and careers

    This Certificate III in Manufacturing Technology specialises in the use and application of CAD/Drafting skills to assist in the design and making of manufactured products.

    Recommended Pathways

    Students may enter this course directly. They would normally be expected to be in relevant employment. They may proceed to higher level qualifications within the Manufacturing Training Package MSA07 as explained in Section 7.1. They may also move into training packages specific to particular manufacturing sectors.

    If students have undertaken this qualification with the support of their employer it would be expected that they would be employed in positions at AQF3 in the workplace.

    There are a range of career opportunities available to reflect the diverse skills needed in manufacturing enterprises.

    CAD / Drafting covers both Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) and traditional drafting principles as well as electives in information technology and manufacturing processes and operations. On finishing, cadets could be employed in a range of roles such as CAD operator or detail draftsperson.

    Articulation

    Students who complete the Certificate III in Manufacturing Technology, specialising in CAD/Drafting, can apply to enrol in the Certificate IV in Manufacturing Technology (CAD/Drafting).

    Students may then apply to enrol in the Diploma or Advanced Diploma and gain credit for any units achieved, provided they are valid in the qualifications you choose.

    Expected Outcomes

    Successful completion of this course will provide students with the competencies
    to develop and implement technical manufacturing techniques and obtain
    employment as a draftsperson or supervisor in a manufacturing technology
    enterprise.

    More specifically, the course aims to provide students with skills and knowledge
    to:
    - Use computer aided drafting systems to produce basic engineering drawings
    - Use CAD to create and display 3D models
    - Produce detailed engineering drawings
    - Produce basic engineering graphics
    - Assist in the preparation of a basic workplace layout
    - Interpret technical drawing
    - Organise and communicate information

    If students have undertaken this qualification with the support of their
    employer it would be expected that they would be employed in technical
    positions at AQF level III in the workplace.
