On completion of the training programme trainees will be able to:

1- Induction
State the planned outcomes and the conditions attached to attendance on the course; apply good safety, health and hygiene practices; state the basic principle involved in environmental issues and explain the meaning of equal opportunities.
2- Engineering Health and Safety
Understand the requirements that are essential to enable engineering activities to be carried out safely and effectively. It includes dealing with statutory and organisational requirements in accordance with approved regulations, codes of practice and procedures. It covers
responsibilities relating to accident reporting and the identification of hazards and risks
3- Engineering Principles
Understand those engineering principles that enhance the performance of engineering operations. This includes the extraction, interpretation and use of a range of technical information sources. It includes the use of basic calculations and engineering science that enables the candidate to better understand the behaviour and properties of engineering materials in order that appropriate materials may be selected to satisfy specifications. The identification and application of quality control measures that are relevant to engineering activities are also covered.
4- Principles of Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering
Understand the underlying principles that apply to all common machine tool systems, covering: the alignment of machine tools, power transmission, an evaluation of the application of CNC to machine tools and the understanding of maintenance requirements for machine tool systems. Within the unit candidates are expected to prepare a maintenance programme, prepare a lubrication chart, produce a CNC part- programme and critically compare CNC machining to non-CNC machining.
5-Machining Materials by Turning
Carry out a full alignment test and record the results, produce internal and external tapers, measure angles and inspect with taper gauges, cut internal and external multi start threads, form profiles and identify cutting tool shapes and describe the materials
6- Machining Materials by Milling
Set and operate a universal dividing head, carry out differential indexing, establish spindle speeds and feeds for individual operations, machine multiple faces in a single pass, mill straight and curved gears.
7-CNC Machining of Materials
Develop the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully machine by Computer Numerical Control (CNC), it includes part- programming, preparation of the machine, selection and the preparing of the required methods of workholding, the selection and the correct mounting of tooling.
It also covers the operations required and safe working practices to complete the machining operations.
8- Produce Drawings Using CAD
Develop the skills and knowledge in computer aided design (CAD), in terms of producing 2D and 3D drawings, including the use of 3D
modelling methods.
9- Manual Metal Arc Welding
Weld metal arc fillet welds in horizontal and overhead positions to complete lap fillets, tee fillets and butt joints to Welding Standard EN9606-1
10- Career Planning and Job Seeking Skills
Plan and achieve realistic work goals.
11-In- Company-Workplace Competence Schedule
Demonstrate a broad range of occupational competencies in a real work environment.
