Overview

Blue Dog Training’s Certificate III in Diesel Fitting is self-paced, practical and personal. Our training is integrated with the practical skills you will learn on the job – no block training.

Blue Dog will customise an Individual Training Plan that suits the apprentice and the workplace. Apprentices and employers have access to one on one support from a trade qualified trainer who is assigned to you and your organisation for the entire apprenticeship.

On completion of your qualification you will be a trade-qualified diesel fitter. Your employer can inspect the training at any stage, this means they can be certain that you are achieving the right outcomes and meeting the necessary industry standards for their workplace.

In Queensland, apprenticeship and traineeship training and assessment is funded by the Queensland Government under the User Choice Program which is administered by the Department of Education 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 apprenticeships 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.

Female worker cutting metal sheet

Returning to study as a mature aged apprentice was initially very challenging but given my goal to become qualified so that I could earn a promotion I was able to apply myself and get on with the study. I found the Blue Dog method of training very helpful for someone like me whose past experience meant that I was able to move at my own pace fairly quickly.

It takes a high level of discipline to work alone but it was great to know that my trainer Steve was always at the end of the phone when I needed him. Steve is a very experienced diesel fitter who has recently left the mining industry to become a trainer at Blue Dog so he knows and understands exactly what my challenges were during the apprenticeship and in the industry in general. You really feel that you are working with a very experienced tradesman rather than a trainer. I also felt that I was being treated like a fellow tradesman throughout the experience.
