This qualification defines the skills and knowledge required of an Engineering Tradesperson - Mechanical specialising in diesel fitting and plant mechanics within metal, engineering, manufacturing and associated industries. The qualification has been specifically developed for apprentices in the above trade. The qualification packaging has been developed on an assumption that competency will be developed through a combination of on and off-the-job learning strategies such as those delivered through a formal apprenticeship. The qualification may also be achieved through formal skills recognition assessment processes.
The skills associated with this qualification are intended to apply to a wide range of trade work including manufacturing, assembly and commissioning of mobile and stationary plant, servicing, diagnosis and rectification of faults, condition monitoring, and preventative maintenance.
This qualification is designed to provide an industry recognised skills profile related to trade work as a fixed and/or mobile plant mechanic.
Completion of the bksb (Basic Key Skills Builder) online literacy and numeracy assessment prior to enrolment, unless the student has completed an equal or higher level course.
This course is for apprenticeship training only. Students must be employed as apprentices in the relevant industry.
