This 3-year programme provides the essential knowledge, skills and behaviours for service technicians working on a range of lift trucks and powered access machines. An apprenticeship that is suitable for someone who has left school and/or is new to the industry. This is an Advanced Apprenticeship which focuses on remove, refit, service, and inspection of units during the first two years and then a third year on fault diagnosis.
At the end of the apprenticeship, they will be a qualified Level 3 Lift Truck and Powered Access Engineer, with the ability to attend customer sites, diagnose the problem and have the ability to either economically repair or replace parts where necessary.
Here’s how it works…
Employers should get in touch with NWSLC to register candidates onto the IMI-accredited apprenticeship in Lift Truck Maintenance and Repair (Level 2 and 3).
Throughout the course of the apprenticeship, NWSLC will manage and assess the competence element of the programme. Because NWSLC has a national network of assessors, apprentices can be visited regularly in the workplace.
