For St Ursula’s College Year 11 students, Brodie Craig and Bianca Blom, completing Certificate II in Engineering Pathways is only the start of their respective career journeys.
Brodie, 17, hails from Mistake Creek in the Northern Territory, and said her newly honed boilermaker, welding, and metal fabrication skills will be put to the test when she returns home for the summer holidays.
“I plan on helping out and fixing a few gates now; I’ll definitely be able to tackle some new tasks and help out on the property,” Brodie said.
Bianca, 17, said she viewed the Certificate II in Engineering Pathways as just that, a pathway to being one step closer to working as a Fitter and Machinist in the Mining industry.
“I would encourage anyone who is looking to complete a Certificate course to do it; you learn a lot of skills and the trainers are really knowledgeable,” Bianca said.
Bianca and Brodie completed the Certificate II in Engineering Pathways in 12 months, with one day each week allocated to on campus training at CQUniversity Rockhampton.
