Fitter and turners assemble, maintain and repair machines, tools and equipment. They work closely with machinists, with a large amount of work carried out in a workshop or factory setting. The majority of learning for an apprentice fitter and turner is hands-on and practical.
Blue Dog Training’s Certificate III in Engineering: Mechanical Trade – Fitting/Turning (MEM30205) course is self-paced and flexible, with theory that strongly ties in with the practical skills developed in the workplace. Our training is suitable for school-based apprentices, part-time apprentices, full-time apprentices or mature-aged apprentices.
|Attendance||On-the-job training. No classrooms or block training. Flexible theory delivery.|
|Course Duration||4 year contract term and 3.5 years standard expected duration. Existing skills and experience are recognised and training may be fast-tracked, if appropriate.|
|Entry Requirements||Employment-based training. Apprentices must have an employer with a full scope of work and be supervised by a qualified tradesperson before training can commence. Contact one of our trainers for information on necessary supervisor qualifications.|
|Locations||Please note that this course is currently only available in Queensland.|
Our trainers are trade-qualified with relevant industry experience. They work with the apprentice and employer to develop an individual training plan. Consideration is given to the apprentice and employer's circumstances, as well as the range of work that will be covered in the workplace.
Theory is delivered through our online learning platform, and the practical development of on-site skills is documented using our Skills Profiler app. Your designated trainer will track your progress, provide support where required and assess your competency throughout the apprenticeship.

In Queensland, apprenticeship training and assessment is funded by the Queensland Government under the User Choice program which is administered by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training.
Apprentices and trainees can only receive one government contribution for a User Choice funded qualification at any single point in time, i.e. a student is not funded to undertake two apprenticeship or traineeships at the same time. In addition, apprentices and trainees including school-based apprentices and trainees (SATs), can only receive a maximum of two government funding contributions under the current User Choice program.
More information on the Queensland Government funding rules, fees and fee concessions is available in the Blue Dog Training Student Handbook.
|Training Fees (All Apprentices)||The Training Fees are fully funded by the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training - User Choice Program.|
|Co-contribution Fees (Costs to Apprentice/Employer for School Leavers)||The Department of Employment, Small Business and Training funds all co-contribution fees for apprentices who have completed Year 12 in Queensland in 2013 onwards, AND commence their apprenticeship within the following calendar year after completing Year 12.|
|Co-contribution Fees (Costs to Apprentice/Employer for School-Based Apprentices)||The Department of Employment, Small Business and Training funds all co-contribution fees for School-Based Apprentices.|
|Co-contribution Fees (Costs to Apprentice/Employer for Other Apprentices)||Co-contribution fees apply. Approximately $1600 depending on selected unit. Concessions may apply for eligible learners, reducing the co-contribution fee to approximately $640. Further details can be found in the Blue Dog Training Student Handbook.
