Civil Construction Training

Civil Construction Training is designed to give student's nationally recognised training that encompasses a wide variety of skills and roles within the civil construction industry.

A list of the Civil Construction courses that Site Skills Training offers are outlined below.

RII30115 Certificate III in Surface Extraction Operations

The RII30115 Certificate III in Surface Extraction Operations qualification reflects the role of employees such as production operators in an open cut mine or quarry, who perform tasks involving a broad range of skilled applications in a varied work context, using some discretion and judgement in selecting equipment, services or contingency measures.

Licensing, legislative, regulatory and certification requirements that apply to this qualification can vary between states, territories, and industry sectors. Relevant information must be sourced prior to application of the qualification.

Welding Certification (Theory & Practical)

Advance your welding portfolio, and gain the theoretical knowledge required to apply for your Welding Certificate - to qualify, you must also complete the theory certification as prescribed by Australian Standards (AS) 1796 - 2001. This course covers knowledge of welding terms, codes and symbols, the effects of heat treatment on metal as it relates to welding, and the logical sequence for a welding process required to be conducted to AS 1796. It also covers welding, planning and set up principles for a range of materials and welding processes (Welding Certification Theory) Advance your welding portfolio and gain the practical skills required to apply for your Welding Certificate - to qualify, you must also complete the theory certification as prescribed by Australian Standards (AS) 1796 - 2001. Certification is mandatory for welders engaged in welding activities involved in the manufacture of pressure equipment such as boilers, pressure vessels and associated piping, as defined in AS / New Zealand Standards 1200 (Certification Practical).

Welding Theory and Basic Welding Practical

Get skilled for the light or heavy metal fabrication and welding industry. Through this course you will gain the theoretical knowledge to safely apply welding practices by identifying the risks associated with welding and implementing the correct hazard reduction practices. You will also learn to identify material properties, and develop the ability to select the correct welding process to achieve a safe and effective weld.

You will receive a Statement of Attainment upon completion of this course. If you wish to undertake the full qualification, you will receive recognition of units completed. (Welding Theory)

This entry level course is designed for people who are seeking to enter the welding industry, or who are currently working in the industry. It will provide you with basic practical and theoretical skills to make simple welds in flat or downhand position, and covers Stick, MIG and TIG welding processes. You will receive a Statement of Attainment upon completion of this course. If you wish to undertake the full qualification, you will receive recognition of units completed. (Welding Basic Practical)

Intermediate Welding Practical

Designed for workers currently in working or seeking progressive employment opportunities in the welding industry, this course will enhance your skills in welding and knowledge of materials and building code requirements. You can only enroll into one welding process at a time – you can choose from; Stick, MIG, TIG, or Flux-cored arc welding. Learn to weld in a horizontal, vertical up and the overhead position, whilst adhering to Australia Standards 1554.1, at the general purpose level.

Upon successful completion you will be able to continue your studies in the Course in Welding - Advanced. You will receive a Statement of Attainment upon completion of this course. If you wish to undertake the full qualification, you will receive recognition of units completed.

Oxy Welding

Students will learn practical and theoretical skills in all three processes:

  • Oxy cutting
  • Oxy welding; and
  • Brazing

Introduction to TIG Welding

This course is recommended for beginners/hobbyists with no welding experience who do not require a qualification.

Introduction to welding is a non-accredited course that provides students with the opportunity to gain some practical skills in the TIG processes. The course is high in practical component with basic safety and theory included.

Students who complete this course who wish to further their welding experience and gain formal qualifications should enrol in the basic welding course at the completion of this unit.

Advanced Welding

Designed for workers currently in working or seeking progressive employment opportunities in the welding industry, this course will enhance your skills in welding and knowledge of materials and building code requirements. You can only enrol into one welding process at a time – you can choose from; Stick, MIG, TIG, or Flux-cored arc welding. You will learn to weld in a horizontal, vertical up and the overhead position, whilst adhering to Australia Standards 1554.1 at the structural purpose level.

You will receive a Statement of Attainment upon completion of this course. If you wish to undertake the full qualification, you will receive recognition of units completed.

RII30813 Certificate III Civil Construction Plant Operations

The Certificate III in Civil Construction (Plant Operation) is a nationally accredited training program from the Training Package for Civil Construction. It covers civil operations work undertaken in local government, state road authorities and civil contractors. Depending on the units selected participants may be trained across different areas including the operation of loadshifting equipment and plant, excavation techniques, trenching and confined space work. Upon successful completion of this course participants will receive a qualification in RII30813 - Certificate III in Civil Construction (Plant Operation).
