Please note this course is held at our Nelson Campus only.
This apprenticeship is focussed on carrying out metal fabrication work using things such as rolled steel joists, columns, channels, steel plate and metal sheet etc. Within this industry you will use a large range of metals including steel, aluminium and titanium at a range of thicknesses from 0.5mm up to over 20mm. The size and weight of the fabrications can range from components that can easily be picked up by hand, to massive structures that require several cranes to manipulate.
Fabricators are essential to a large number of industries and work includes manufacturing bridges, oil rigs, ships, petro-chemical installations, cranes, platforms, aircraft, automotive and machinery parts, sheet metal enclosures, equipment supports, and anything that can be fabricated out of metal.
