Level 3 NVQ Extended Diploma in Engineering Maintenance at Salford and Trafford Engineering Group Training Association (STEGTA) Ltd.
As a technician, you’ll be responsible for making sure machinery and equipment runs smoothly. You could work in manufacturing, production or transport. You could do any job from fixing machinery on a food production line to testing aircraft parts in a hangar. However, your work will be either preventative or emergency maintenance.
Your duties will involve:
- Organising routine servicing schedules.
- Allocating work to a team of fitters.
- Checking and calibrating instruments to make sure they are accurate.
- Fitting new parts.
- Carrying out quality inspections
- Responding immediately to equipment breakdowns
- Fixing faults on site or arranging for replacement machinery or equipment to be installed
- Keeping production managers informed of progress.
- Organising teams or individuals to make sure that 24-hour cover is available.
As a fitter, you’ll service and repair the equipment. You could work on mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic or computerised systems.
Again, your job will involve either preventative or emergency maintenance. You’re likely to be:
- Making scheduled checks on machinery and parts
- Finding and fixing faults and recalibrating instruments.
- Oiling and cleaning machinery and parts.
- Overhauling and replacing parts according to schedule.
- Responding immediately to machinery breakdowns.
In both jobs, you’ll work as part of a team of engineering technicians, fitter and shift supervisors.
