Advanced Diploma in Welding and Fabrication
This course combines theoretical knowledge and practical training carried out in College-based industrial workshops. Learners will be expected to participate individually and in teams to fabricate welded products. They will learn how to analyse and generate solutions related to typical fabrication using thin plates and pipes. Learners will also be given the opportunity to follow an Apprenticeship to improve their hands-on experience. In order to be able to appreciate the importance of good production management, supervised visits to complex production set-ups are organised during the course. Applicants need to be able to work within the industries concerned. Applicants coming in through the Secondary Education Certificate route may be requested to complete an additional Level 4 preparatory year if they do not have prior exposure and experience in the sector.
