  • Course Overview

    This course is a welding certification, commonly known as a welding ticket, examined by the WTIA (Welding Technology Institute of Australia). The program is designed to provide you with the training and knowledge required to undertake the practical and theoretical examinations for your ticket.

    You will gain experience in the flux-cored arc welding process as required in the fabrication and welding industry and specified in the Australian Standard AS1796.

    Successful completion of the course enables you to sit the related WTIA Ticket examinations.

  • Requirements

    Recognition of prior learning

    You may be able to shorten the length of your chosen course by measuring skills acquired through work, life experiences or qualifications obtained from formal studies or training. AQF qualifications and statements of attainment issued by another registered training organisation will be recognised by Holmesglen.

    Please see Recognition of Prior Learning and Credit Transfer for more information.


  • Outcomes

    Qualification & Recognition

    Upon successful completion of this course, you are eligible to receive the nationally endorsed statement of attainment.


    Successful completion of this course and the WTIA examination will give you the skills necessary to do advanced flux-cored arc welding in a manufacturing/fabrication engineering company.

    Career Opportunities

    Further studies will enable you to gain additional WTIA certificates.

    Gaining a WTIA certificate No. 8F in adherence to AS 1796 will allow you to work as a 'coded welder' using the Flux-Cored Arc Welding process.

    Becoming a 'coded welder' more often than not results in much higher wages than the typical metal fabrication trades-person, and work is completed at a substantially higher level and is more stringently tested.

Engineering & Fabrication Open Days

  • 21Jun

    Do you love work that is physical and technical? Consider a practical career in the fabrication trades and become an expert in welding engineering.

    At Holmesglen, we're all about hands on learning, so our fabrication workshops are equipped with industry standard machinery. Our continued investment in equipment means that you learn on the equipment you will find on the job, so when you finish your studies you are work safe and work ready.

    Visit us on Open Days at 2.30pm and talk to our teachers about a career in Engineering. You will be shown around our workshop and possibly having a try at designing something with our computer controlled plasma machine that you can take home. After the tour our teaching staff will be available to answer any further questions about the courses and the industry.

    You can also come along to find out more about our VET in Schools course, the Certificate II in Engineering Studies. Our experienced teachers will provide you with information on how we can support you to successfully complete units towards your Year 11 and Year 12 studies as well as highlight future study pathways and career opportunities.
