Diploma of Hydraulic Services Design
Individuals considering a career in Hydraulic Engineering are encouraged to complete the Diploma of Hydraulic Services Design (CPC50612) conducted by an Registered Training Organisation (RTO). To be able to participate in the Diploma, you must first have attained a satisfactory level of achievement in the Certificate IV in Plumbing and Services (CPC40912). There are two pathways through the Certificate IV as follows:
- Hydraulic Services Design Stream if you are entering directly from High School.
- Plumbing and Services - Operations Stream if you have completed the Certificate III in Plumbing (CPC32413).
It is not a requirement that you have completed Year 12 (or equivalent). However, it is recommended that you do so and study subjects including English, Maths, Science, Engineering Science, Technical Drawing or equivalent subjects, as these will help develop skills that you will use as a Hydraulic Consultant.
