Duration: 36 weeks
Level: Level 3
Last Updated: 03-01-20

The Level 3 Certificate in Fabrication and Welding Practice is suitable for those wishing to specialise in this particular area of engineering as current skills and abilities are expanded upon.

Through a mixture of hands-on, practical sessions and theory based study, you will progress your basic welding and fabrication abilities to more highly developed skills, as you build upon already established equipment functions and material knowledge. This course will give you the opportunity to develop core skills in the context of fabrication and welding, recognition of existing skills and better position to ‘sell themselves’ to potential employers. 

Level 3 qualification learners are expected to be able to produce high quality work that meets the stringent requirements of the assessment process. As well as working to close tolerances, learners should be able to have a good understanding of the theory aspects associated with fabrication and welding. 

You will engage with a range of mandatory and optional units, studying 29 credits in total. You will need to pass all units, to complete the course.

Successful completion of the course will allow you to progress into employment or onto the Level 3 Diploma in Fabrication and Welding Practice, through the study of additional units.
 

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

You will study a minimum of 29 credits, through 1 mandatory unit: Science and calculations for fabrication and welding practice and 3 optional units. 

You will leave, upon successful completion of the course with knowledge in three of the following optional units:

Manual metal-arc welding – vertical
Metal-arc gas shielded welding – vertical
Tungsten-arc gas shielded welding – vertical
Fabrication processes – plate
 

HOW WILL I BE TAUGHT?

You will be taught in purpose built workshops by industry experienced professionals, who will develop skills to ensure you can undertake the fundamental basics and progress onto higher level study, if you so wish.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

You will be assessed through a range of online multiple choice tests and practical assessments.

WHAT CAN I DO NEXT?

On completion of this qualification you will have obtained the skills, knowledge and understanding to progress on to a higher level qualification in the same or similar occupational area, or into employment.

Successful completion of the course will allow you to progress into employment or onto the Level 3 Diploma in Fabrication and Welding Practice, through the study of additional units.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE I NEED TO KNOW?

We would recommend the following reading prior to starting the course: - Fabrication and Welding Engineering, Author - Roger Timings. Publisher – Newnes. 

If not owned already, you will be required to purchase steel toe cap boots. All other PPE and equipment will be provided.
