Construction Plant Fitters are generally employed in the construction and engineering industries. The vast range of equipment within the industries requires that the plant fitter will be multi-skilled in the maintenance and repair of engines, transmissions, hydraulic systems and small plant. The ability to diagnose and rectify electrical faults in plant is also within the scope of the Construction Plant Fitter. Because of the high cost of “machine time” the major part of the maintenance and repair work is carried out “on site”. At the end of the apprenticeship, the craftsperson will be able to demonstrate competence in the following skills.
