Contact by Training Services NSW

If your course has been funded by Training Services NSW under Smart and Skilled, you may be contacted by a Training Services NSW representative to discuss your experience at Western Sydney Institute.

This course is for people employed as a trainee of draftsperson working in
specialist engineering or manufacturing sectors such as in mechanical, machine
construction and maintenance, steel fabrication, mechanical services, electrical
services, fluid power or piping assembly organisations.

You will acquire skills and knowledge to produce detail drawings according to
engineering designs and Australian Standards (AS). The skills you will develop
include use of computer-aided design (CAD) software functions and ability to
apply industry and discipline specific knowledge to produce models, produce
drawings and schematics for specialised engineering-related areas of industry.
Other skills covered in this course may include information gathering, such as
onsite visits, calculations, consultations and research.

The course duration will vary depending on the training pathway agreed to
between you, your employer and the TAFE College.

Students will complete the course using selected CAD and Drafting specialist units as offered by the Section. A pathway to a higher level Diploma qualification is available on completion.
