Requirements of the course
This course requires both on-campus practical and theory classes; and connectivity to learning management systems for self-paced study.
On-campus practical and theory classes:
For 3 hours every week, you will need to attend workshops and lectures on-campus.
Connectivity to learning management systems for self-paced study:
Once enrolled, you will receive information about how to login to our eCampus. Your study will include 6 to 8 hours a week using Blackboard, where you will access learning content, assignments, lesson plans and pre-reading for classes, at your place of choice, on or off-campus. To access the full suite of software activities, you will need to use College computers at Munster campus.
Engineering study pathways that lead to jobs of the future
Are you ready to take the next step in your career?
This skill set is one of three made of units from the MEM50212 Diploma of Engineering - Technical. SM TAFE delivers these skill sets in tandem with the diploma qualification each semester, so that workers seeking to specialise in mechanical or electrical engineering can reach their study goals flexibly.
You can choose to study one or all the skill sets from the diploma, but we recommend you enrol into the Diploma if you plan to study all the skill sets and wish to apply for a VET Student Loan.

More information about fees – at a glance
Fees and charges published on our website are indicative. The fee for this course is displayed in the table above, showing tuition fees, resource fees and total fees for general and concession fee types for qualifications and skill sets, and one total fee for short courses.
Your fees will depend on your eligibility for government funding or a concession rate, and the units you choose to study or seek to be recognised under Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). Our Indicative fees lists show fees that are:
Based on the full possible study plan of units, including the recommended electives
Based on full time study in 2021
Subject to change for full time study in 2022
Charged at the government funded rate for over 18 years of age students
Based on unit electives designed to meet localised industry demand for skills
Made up of course fees and resource fees, or RPL fees. Course fees are the cost of your tuition, while resource fees pay for consumables provided to you to aid your study (such as printing and paper). You may also be required to purchase text books or equipment that are not part of our tuition or resource fees. Short course fees include both tuition and resource fees as one total fee.
Fees may vary between students and between educational providers. Other charges may apply.
Lower Fees, Local Skills fee caps
The annual fees cap on Lower fees, local skills qualifications means that regardless of how much course fees are, you will not pay more than a set total amount per qualification or course in any one calendar year. The annual fees cap is set at $400 for eligible concession students, and $1,200 for non-concession students, plus resource fees. If you begin study in Semester 2 and your course runs longer than one semester, you should expect a new calendar year cap to begin in the next semester of your study, as your further study will be considered in a new calendar year.
Skills Ready skill sets
Skills Ready skill sets are free for eligible students. For those who are not eligible, tuition, resource and other fees are payable. Find out more about the initiative.
VET Student Loans
Selected Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses are VET Student Loan eligible courses. A VET Student Loan creates a debt that must be repaid to the Commonwealth and is only available to students who are eligible. Student Loan fee caps apply. To find out if you are eligible, to see the list of eligible courses or view the loan caps visit our Student Loans page.
Selected courses are available to International students for full time study only. Fees, charges, available locations, applications and enrolment procedures for International students are different to those for students who have Australian permanent residency. For more information or to find a course visit the TAFE International WA website.
Recognition of Prior Learning
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) enrolments are charged at $3.25 per nominal hour of study.
No concession fees apply to RPL enrolments. Refer to the institutional or apprenticeship/traineeship fee list above for an indicative RPL course fee.
To get started with RPL, visit the Recognition of Prior Learning page.
College Discretionary Fee (CDF)
For all on campus and online and on campus students an annual $20 discretionary fee is payable to cover items like security and other onsite facilities once per semester.
