Why study an Engineering Studies Fitter and Turner programme with College SA?

Metal fitters and turners can be found working in an industrial environment. The main job of a fitter and turner is to fit and assemble metal parts for machinery or engines. Fitter and turners can also be found operating the machines that shape and manufacture the metal parts needed to build or repair machinery and engines. 

There are many job opportunities out there for skilled fitter and turners. This programme also allows artisans to start their own business.

To apply for a job in fitting and turning, you will need a recognised qualification. College SA offers three nationally-recognised certificates. These certificates will equip you with theoretical knowledge. Once you have completed your theoretical training, you will be required to get practical experience to be considered for a job in this field.
