Maintenance & Operations Engineering Technicians will work on various types of plant and equipment commonly found throughout the Engineering Industry sectors and the Technicians can be expected to migrate through these sectors during the course of their careers. Dependent upon the sector that they are employed in there may be subtle differences in terms of the composition and application of the plant and equipment. However, the fundamental principles of operation will be the same regardless of the engineering sector.

Entry requirement for this apprenticeship will be decided by the employer, however a minimum of a Grade C/4 is required in Maths prior to enrolment. 

A Technician will understand:

  • first principles relating to the operation and maintenance of appropriate plant and equipment
  • relevant industry health and safety standards, regulations, and environmental and regulatory requirements
  • maintenance and operational practices, processes and procedures covering a range of plant and equipment
  • the relevant engineering theories and principles relative to their occupation

Core Skills:

A Technician will apply their knowledge of plant and systems to safely perform maintenance and operational activities with minimum supervision. This will require them to:

  • comply with industry health, safety and environmental working practices and regulations
  • locate, and rectify faults on plant and equipment
  • communicate with and provide information to stakeholders in line with personal role and responsibilities
  • read, understand and interpret information and work in compliance with technical specifications and supporting documentation
