Qualification on offer

New Zealand Certificate in Metal Forming (Trade) (Level 4)

This qualification is designed to enable trainees/apprentices employed in the metal casting discipline of engineering to gain recognition for the relevant skills and knowledge required by industry.

The qualification represents a set of foundation skills for mechanical engineering and specific skills in metal casting and engineering pattern making. Metal casting embraces moulding and pattern making skills. Technological advances have initiated a convergence of these historical trades: it is impossible for either to exist in isolation. People awarded this qualification can use the tools and make castings or patterns/tooling applicable to metal casting.

The best part? Earn while you learn - there's no student loan

You’ll get qualified without a student loan, all while learning practical skills from industry experts. You can put that money towards something else you really want – might be a new car, new tools or a new house.
