Maintenance engineers look after and fix engineered systems inside and outside buildings.
Engineering and electrical mainteance tends to relate to support in factories, warehouses and retail premises, but also includes such locations as hospitals, housing association properties and public services.
On this programme you'll get experience of the requirements of Mechanical Maintenance Technicians, Electronics Maintenance Technicians and Electrical Maintenance Technicians. In all roles there is a requirement to carry out fault diagnosis and maintenance on equipment and to conduct quality inspections.
