Apprentice Training

Apprentice training
On-site or classroom based
IMI approved course

Many companies like to send their apprentices on external training courses to develop their skills and involve them with the latest technologies, such as Hybrid’s. The course is designed to give students a more in-depth look into the world of design and manufacturing and to push them a little further, particularly with regard to the electronic systems used on modern buses.

We have been running apprentice courses for a number of years and receive great feedback from the students. The course is designed to be hands-on, and aimed at developing their (often reluctant) approach to electrical and electronic trouble shooting skills and simple use of a digital multimeter.

Mechanical components still form the backbone “running gear” on a bus, however most mechanical components are now controlled using CAN lines, ECU’s and Multiplex systems. Our approach is to under pin the importance of becoming a good technician, rather than just a mechanic.

Course duration and content can be tailored to suit, but typically, a full week course provides a great learning experience for the students. Written assessments are used for each part of the course and results provided for the employer.
