Mechanical courses

The UK has a long and proud tradition of engineering and the mechanical engineering industry offers an exciting opportunity for young people. As a trainee mechanical engineer, you will be taught the practical and theoretical skills associated with mechanical maintenance and construction. You will learn about many subjects including basic bench fitting/hand tool skills, workshop safety, measuring and marking out, gears and bearings, pump maintenance, compressors, valves, pipe fitting, alignment techniques, seals and lubrication, key fitting and shafts.

To complement your practical skills you will complete a recognised academic qualification, which will include maths, health and safety, mechanical theory and mechanical principles.When assessed to be competent you will actually maintain mechanical rotating equipment and understand all aspects of mechanical maintenance. These are qualifications that meet the required standard to become a technician in the mechanical engineering industry.
