Delegates will build on skills gained in Part 1 and feel confident to build upon their ability to diagnose and fix routine mechanical faults. Successful completion of this training course will mean they candidate has passed a range of practical competence assessments and a written assessment covering knowledge and understanding. This will enable the participants to carry out specific mechanical tasks back in the workplace with some initial ‘on-job’ support.
Is it right for me?
Operators, maintenance teams and technicians who need to enhance their mechanical competence.
What will I learn?
The 8-day programme is delivered as two 4-day courses, and will focus on:
- Understanding the importance of Health and Safety relevant to the safe conduct of mechanical tasks
- Bench fitting
- Types of power transmission
- Gear and gearbox characteristics
- Angular joints and fluid couplings
- Uses of Seals
- Static and dynamic type materials and uses
- Methods of installation
- Application and selection of grades
Following completion of this course, we recommend skills learnt are practised in the workplace until a proficient standard is achieved. Candidates can then be signed-off as competent to carry out the prescribed tasks.
What are the benefits?
Delegates will know why they are carrying out the maintenance task. This makes them far more likely to do the work. On completion of the course, the candidate will be able to carry out high-frequency, low-risk mechanical tasks. One customer had a 15% increase in OEE following on from a tailored version of this course.
As you can imagine I have taken part in a good few courses over the years. I have to say, this has been by far the most beneficial one I have ever taken part in. I believe Tonys teaching methods, attitude towards his job, people skills and knowledge are the reason I feel I have learned and retained so much of the information he has presented over the duration.
I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and it has given me a great appetite to continue trying to better myself ( something which had started to elude me ). I just wanted to share with someone my respect and appreciation for his effort, patience and time he gave.
