Certificate II in Engineering Pathways
This qualification develops trade-like skills and is not intended to develop trade-level skills. As an example, the outcome level of welding skills from this qualification is not about learning trade -level theory and practice of welding; it is about being introduced to welding, how it can be used to join metal with the opportunity to weld some metal together. Similarly, with machining the outcome should be something produced on a lathe etc., not the theory and practice of machining. The focus should be on using engineering tools and equipment to produce or modify objects. This needs to be done in a safe manner for each learner including people near the learner.
This qualification applies to a learning and assessment environment where access to structured on-the-job learning in a workplace may not be available. This qualification is intended for simulated work environments.
The learning program should be centred around the major project. MSMPCI101 Adapt to work in industry is a unit of competency that provides the opportunity for work placement.
