PDA Engineering Practice: Fabrication and Welding SCQF level 7

Engineering Practice

The awards will develop candidates' abilities to apply analysis skills to the solution of engineering problems and allow them to develop a range of skills relevant to the needs of advanced engineering craft persons and engineering supervisors. They allow the candidate to achieve a degree of specialism at advanced craft level, and in advanced engineering craft principles and technologies in the following areas; Fabrication and Welding, Engineering Manufacture, Engineering Maintenance or Electrical Engineering.

The awards will allow candidates to develop knowledge, understanding and skills to undertake the role of an engineering supervisor in an engineering business environment. The successful candidates may work now, or in the future, at advanced engineering craft and supervisory level, in an engineering environment.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) advises that an Advanced Certificate/HNC Engineering Practice award partially meets the academic requirements for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and meets the academic underpinning requirements for registration as an Engineering Technician.

On successful completion, the awards will allow candidates to progress to a relevant HNC/D Engineering or further qualifications in a supervisory or management area.
