This course is aimed at Individuals already working in the engineering manufacturing sector in typical work roles such as:
Machine Setter Operator - Basic machine operator for batch production activity, material preparation, operate a variety of machines to turn, drill, bore, grind, cut and mill to shape metal workpieces to specification
Machine Tool Fitter (semi-skilled) - Alignment of Linear rails and ball screws; grinding, scraping and other adjustment techniques and pneumatic and hydraulic pipe work working to assembly drawings
Jig and Tool Fitter (semi-skilled) - Assemble and repair of machine and press tools, dies, jigs, fixtures and other tools
Moulder/Coremaker (semi-skilled) - Work undertaken in foundries where metal is melted and cast into parts such as metal components for industrial machinery, turbines and other industrial equipment
Mechanical Fitter (semi-skilled) - Assembly (under supervision) of mechanical equipment and related systems to required specifications
Semi-skilled Sheet Metal Worker - Fabricating, installation and repair ventilating, heating and air-conditioning systems, plus a wide variety of other sheet fabrications and equipment.
CNC Operator/Setter - Operating CNC machinery such as lathes, milling machines and grinders. Setting up datum’s, offsets, tooling as well as inspecting and keeping tolerances in high volume production
The course is also ideal for those who have been working in manufacturing for a while, but who are yet to obtain formal recognition of their skills by way of a qualification
The course will confirm the learners' current skills but also serve to challenge and stretch a learner where there are gaps in their theory or practical skills.
The individual must be in full time employment working in a role in engineering manufacturing.
The course is delivered at the learners' place of work, with the College Assessor visiting every 6-8 weeks
During an Assessor visit, actions are agreed and a continued portfolio of evidience is built moving forward, proving the learners' understanding of the theory behind the subject matter and ability to apply this in their day to day practical activities.
There are no additional costs for this course.
On successful completion of this course, learners' can progress onto an apprenticeship or the NVQ Level 3 course.
