The NZ Certificate in Mechanical Engineering (Level 3) is a skills-based programme that is designed to launch your career in the engineering industry.
This course is taught by making projects like wheel clamps and braziers. Through these projects, you will learn about tech drawing and design, making calculations and measurements, and the design and planning of metalwork projects. In the workshop, you will be hands-on in measuring, cutting, fabricating, and welding. You will learn about job risk analysis and incident reporting.
On successful completion, you’ll be well on your way to gaining a highly sought after apprenticeship. Your apprenticeship options could include Fitter and Turner, Engineer, Structural Fabricator, Sheet Metal Worker, and Welder.
*This programme is free as it falls under the Government's Targeted Training and Apprenticeships Fund.
Fees listed are indicative only and may vary with course selection. Exact fees can be confirmed when you

New Zealand Certificate in Mechanical Engineering (Level 3)
Mechanical engineers design and give advice on the building and repair of machines and tools. They also investigate problems and faults with machinery, and study ways to improve manufacturing and energy production.
Fabrication engineers make, install and repair metal products such as vents, handrails, boilers, aircraft and boat parts, or beams and girders for construction projects.
Engineering machinists use machines to cut and shape precision parts and equipment. They create, install, maintain and repair metal products, including machinery and equipment in factories.
