Certificate III in Marine

This qualification covers the skills and knowledge required to perform a range of mechanical service and repair tasks within the marine industry. It is suitable for entry into the marine retail, service and repair sector.

Job roles/employment outcomes

The employment outcomes of AUR30511 Certificate III in Marine would see an individual working in the marine mechanical service and repair industry.

The marine mechanic would be typically involved in tasks involving a specialised range of methods, tools, materials and information, and be required to provide and pass on solutions to predictable and unpredictable problems. Some complex and non-routine activities involving individual responsibility and judgement in known contexts and within established parameters may be expected.

This qualification is suitable for an Australian Apprenticeship pathway.
