Australian Institute of Engineering is a Registered Training Organisation delivering Nationally Recognised Training. We have a commitment to helping people achieve their learning goals, in a fun and supportive learning environment.
This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required for employment as an Advanced Engineering Tradesperson – Level II within the metal, engineering, manufacturing, and associated industries or at equivalent levels in other industries where engineering tradespersons work. The qualification has been specifically developed to meet the needs of apprentices in an engineering trade who choose to study at a higher level during their apprenticeship, or for people who are existing engineering tradespersons.
It provides the skills and knowledge for a person to undertake quality control, exercise good interpersonal and communications skills, work from complex instructions and procedures, provide technical guidance or assistance within the scope of responsibility, prepare reports of a technical nature on specific tasks or assignments, exercise broad discretion within the scope of responsibility, perform work under limited supervision either individually or in a team environment, be responsible for assuring the quality of their own work, provide trade guidance and assistance as part of a work team, perform non-trade tasks which are incidental or peripheral to the primary tasks and facilitate the completion of the whole task, inspect products and/or materials for conformity with established operational standards, operate lifting equipment incidental to their work and assists in the provision of training in conjunction with supervisors and trainers.

WHAT IS THE COURSE DURATION?
Course Duration: 2-4 Years in an apprenticeship contract.
Please refer to the RTO for exact course dates.
This program is to be delivered through a combination of face-to-face visits and facilitated live online meetings supported with on-the-job training at the learner’s workplace.
Theory based delivery will occur through facilitated online training sessions occurring fortnightly (3 hours) and practical skills training will occur through a minimum of 4 -5 face to face visits at the student’s workplace through structured training sessions from a qualified trainer / assessor.
Through the online facilitated training sessions, a qualified trainer will provide the required knowledge as per the unit content and will ensure that learning is imparted. The Trainer will have designated session plans to reference to ensure the learning content is provided consistently to all learners.
For practical components / skills, the Trainer will coordinate with the employer to ensure access to suitable environments for practical training to occur.
Learners will also be supplied with Learner Guides for each unit delivered and will work through the learning activities during self-study time. Learning activities will give learners the opportunity to practice and prepare for assessments.
Learners will have the opportunity to apply and test their new knowledge and skills through their employment and on-the-job training within their employer.
