Apprenticeship summary

Apprentice Generator & UPS Service Engineer – the role initially will be to learn how to maintain and to carry out basic fault-finding. This is very much a practical approach and will involve a majority of time working on our customer’s site, with training also at our work premises with some attendance to college.

The role involves a lot of travelling to customer locations and some working away from home. As the equipment we maintain is back up power our access to servicing can involve a lot of out of hours working.

As the role advances a more in-depth training approach will be adopted where you will be introduced to using technical testing equipment and learn more complex fault diagnostic skills.

Installation and commissioning would also become part of this role and training would advance to this level towards the end of the apprenticeship.

Other learning opportunities would be available to Mitchellwest employees to further enhance their skill levels, such as welding, fabrications and basic electrical skills.
