This program includes technical training, hands-on skills training and the required examinations to meet ICE (International Competence: Engineering - Construction) standards.
Successful participants will be awarded a unique photographic IHSP (International Health and Safety Passport) Blue Card, which is valid for 3 years and is recognised worldwide.
Prerequisites: In order to enrol on this course, participants must have attended the following courses:
- ECITB - International Health and Safety Passport (IHSP) Advanced
- ECITB - Mechanical Maintenance Level 2 Training
If you are an experienced Mechanical Maintenance Technician or oversee other personnel, possibly at supervisory level, this training course provides the ideal opportunity for you to learn a broad range of planned maintenance, adjustments, repairs, testing and analysis of performance in a variety of contexts, most of which are complex and non-routine.
By the end of the Mechanical Maintenance Level 3 Training course participants will be able to:
- Position and instal mechanical plant and equipment
- Carry out planned maintenance procedures on mechanical plant and equipment
- Adjust mechanical plant and equipment to meet operating requirements
- Remove & replace components from mechanical plant and equipment
- Test the performance and condition of mechanical plant and equipment, and analyse the results
- Assess the performance and condition of mechanical plant and equipment
- Repair components of mechanical plant and equipment, restoring them to operational condition
All mechanical maintenance training activities on this course will be at an advanced or supervisory level, while remaining in accordance with approved circuit diagrams, drawings, technical specifications and all relevant international/ approved standards. Fault diagnosis activities may be in accordance with a test schedule or may be undertaken by the application of knowledge and understanding of mechanical theory, engineering principles, and plant and equipment operating characteristics and capability. All tasks and subsequent activities will be performed under the supervision of a suitably qualified and experienced trainer.
At the end of the training course participants will do an examination to demonstrate that they have acquired the necessary knowledge and skills. This will consist of:
- A minimum of 4 Mechanical Maintenance Skill Specific Advanced Technical Tests (Level 3)
- A minimum of 4 Skill Specific Technical Tests (Level 2), of which two must be Mechanical Maintenance Skill Specific.
