This qualification is part of the Metal and Engineering Training Package. It provides students with the skills and knowledge to work as an engineering tradesperson in a specialised field - Mechanical Diesel Fitting. Content areas covered include: Occupational Health and Safety policies and procedures, plan and carry out routine tasks, perform computations, interpret technical drawing, hand and power tools. Apprentices would generally be involved in the repair/servicing and maintenance of heavy earthmoving and agricultural machinery. The work may also involve the repair, servicing and maintenance of large marine engines, heavy lift vehicles and stationary plant equipment (i.e. lift motors, generating sets etc.) It would also be expected that the apprentice would perform these duties on engines, cooling systems, automatic transmissions, brakes, clutches, gear boxes, fuel pumps, axel assemblies and electrical equipment related to these items. Whilst the apprentice would use a wide range of hand tools and electrical/air power tools, the apprentice would also need to use the following: welding equipment; hydraulic presses; cranes or gantries; tuning equipment; lathes (milling and other attachments, optional); and the necessary specialised equipment required to carry out these duties (i.e. various pressure testers, valve servicing equipment, brake servicing equipment, ring compressors, pulling or bearing equipment).
