Mechatronics Maintenance Technicians ensure that plant and equipment perform to the required standard to facilitate production targets regarding Safety, Quality, Delivery and Cost within High Value Manufacturing environments. Typically the work would cover a broad range of activities include installation, testing, fault finding and the on-going planned maintenance of complex automated equipment. This requires the application of a complex blend of skills, knowledge and occupational behaviours across the electrical, electronic, mechanical, fluid power and control systems disciplines.
On this programme you will study towards the mechatronics pathway
• Level 2 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Foundation Competence)
• Level 2 Award for Foundation Phase Gateway Assessment
After a further period of skills and technical knowledge development all apprentices will be required to achieve the following qualifications:
• Level 3 Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Development Competence) – Mechatronics Maintenance Technician
• Level 3 Diploma or Extended Diploma in Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (Development Knowledge)
The apprentice will have a depth and breadth of English and mathematics that allow them to operate successfully within their role. This may be met through entry criteria determined by the employer or qualifications and training within the apprenticeship. However, on completion all apprentices will have minimum level 2 qualifications in English and mathematics.
Candidates must have an employer willing to support the requirements of the apprenticeship standard.
Individual employers will set the selection criteria for their apprentices.
Most candidates will have achieved grade C or above in English and Maths and a STEM-related subject at Level 2 prior to commencement of apprenticeship.
If you do not have these, we can assess your current level of literacy/numeracy.
