Qualifications available

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.
