Mechanical maintenance training
This four-day course at our Technology Training Centre in Aston, Birmingham splits between theory lessons and interlinked practical sessions introducing delegates to basic engineering and fitting techniques while at the same time learning the theory behind them.
The course also introduces delegates to basic fault finding techniques, health and safety and control of substances hazardous to health regulations as well and an introduction to how maintenance organisations are organised and operated.
The final day culminates with a practical assessment that brings many of the elements learned throughout the course together allowing both staff and students to see how much progress is made.
