What you do deserve is to know that because your skills hold you in high esteem with your colleagues and employer, you NEVER HAVE TO WORRY AGAIN!

So what kind of skills would an employer be looking for?

THAT PERSON IS YOU with your Cert 4 in Engineering (Fluid Power)!

If you aren’t sure that you are ready to take the next step in your career, have a look at what some of our past students have had to say!


Toowoomba, QLD

“Trainer has very good knowledge of hydraulic systems and explains very clearly"


Maitlan, NSW

“All questions were answered. Time was taken to explain things as best as possible. Great guys delivering course"


Mudgee, NSW

“The trainer was very experienced. learnt a lot of new things about hydraulics"

Certificate IV in Engineering is the next step in the career of a Mechanical or Electrical trades person.

It covers specialised skills in specific technical areas, such as maintaining fluid power systems, condition monitoring along with reporting and analysis.


Trainers online to answer all questions you might have about the course content and assessment

Work anywhere! Have your qualifications recognised anywhere in Australia.

*once all course prerequisites have been met

With APT training you get hands-on experience working on real machines so that you get the full experience of working with hydraulic systems.

We also show you industry leading technology and equipment to make you work safer and more efficient.


The certificate IV in Engineering is the next step in your career as a mechanical and electrical tradesperson.

And our blended delivery model allows you the flexibility to complete your training anytime anywhere! As long as you have an internet connection you’ll be able to complete the theoretical components needed to achieve your Cert IV.

During this time if you have any questions or need support our trainers will be there to help. Whether via email or a quick zoom meeting they will get you the answers you need to continue on your training journey.

Then take it to another level, when you are onsite (at our office in Toronto NSW). You will be assigned to a trainer/mentor for all of your practical components as well as to run you through the theoretical knowledge you need to excel as a fluid power expert.

They are there to help explain assessments and answer any questions you have face to face, so that you have as much chance as possible to succeed in the program. 

All trainers have a strong background in hydraulics and fluid power and will be able to help pass their expert knowledge on to you.



There are 3 entry pathways into the MEM40119 – Certificate IV in Engineering (Fluid Power):

1. Direct Entry – this is for students who have attained MEM30219 – Certificate 3 in Engineering – Mechanical Trade or MEM30319 – Certificate 3 in Engineering – Fabrication Trade. Generally this will be trades who completed their apprenticeship in the last 10 years.

Must have the following units included on their transcript, these units are pre-requisite for the units selected in our MEM40119 – Certificate 4 in Engineering (Fluid Power) Course:

  • MEM09002 Interpret technical drawing
  • MEM12023 Perform engineering measurements
  • MEM18001 Use hand tools
  • MEM18002 Use power tools/hand held operations
  • MEM18003 Use tools for precision work
  • MEM18006 Repair and fit engineering components
  • MEM18055 Dismantle, replace and assemble engineering components

2. Mechanical Trades with Previous Qualificationswill need to go through an Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)  process to complete the Cert 3 Level units

3. Other Trades – this is for other trades. This involves RPL for the Certificate3 level units prior to commencement in the Certificate 4 in Engineering

Before you begin, you will have the support of our trainers so that you are fully aware of the process prior to commencing.
