Each of these is allocated a points score. You must achieve enough units
from Group 3 to score 40 points.
 
Group 3 is divided into Sub-groups. Each sub-group corresponds with a
field in the Metal and Engineering Training Package MEM05 and uses the
same number as the field. This means that there are some gaps in the
numbering of the sub-groups. For example, there are no sub-groups numbered
 
Group 4 Group B - Trade Specialisation Units
--------------------------------------------
Contains the other elective units of competency. These are also allocated a
points score and are also divided into sub-groups. There is no minimum
points score you must achieve from this group so you need not include any
units from this group.

accredited courses where units are available for inclusion at Certificate
III.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
