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.

There are also certain role-specific requirements:

  • Mechanical Maintenance Technicians - repairing components to usable condition, producing replacement components, and assisting in mechanical equipment installation

  • Electronics Maintenance Technician - testing and repairing electronic equipment, circuits, comms equipment, instrumentation and control equipment; and servicing medical equipment

  • Electrical Maintenance Technician - maintenance and testing of electrical equipment and circuits, modifying electrical circuits, and assisting in electrical/electronic equipment installation

You'll need GCSEs in Maths, English and a Science at grade 4(C) or above, and/or relevant industry experience.

Applicants without Level 2 qualifications in Maths & English will need to study Functional Skills at this level alongside their programme.
