Fitters (including machining) are responsible for the mechanical maintenance of machinery, including the assembling and fitting of new components.
They also manufacture and construct components for machinery, using power-operated tools to a small extend, excluding the lathe.
The following modules/unit standards are done during training:
- Hand Tools:
Reading of engineering drawings
Use of measuring instruments and marking off of materials
Using a drilling machine, grinder, welding machine and oxy-acetylene equipment
- Make and fit a key
- File and saw a workpiece
- Drill and tap holes
- Overhaul valves
- Maintain and align couplings
- Tension and align V-belts
- Lift and move equipment
- Principles of pneumatics
- Principles of hydraulics
- Line up a fluid drive coupling
- Overhaul hydraulic brakes
- Overhaul an electromagnetic brake
- Maintain clutches
- Maintain gearboxes
- Overhaul a multi-stage centrifugal pump
During Final Training, learners receive intensive training to prepare them for the Trade Test. Training during this period includes all modules/unit standards trained in during the Basic, Advanced training phases.
For more information and specific modules/unit standards, please feel free to contact UMF-TC’s engineering (administration) Department.
Any part of the course can also be done as per client specification.
