Are you looking to get into a career in Engineering Maintenance? This course will give you the knowledge and understanding of key principles and values required to work in the Engineering Sector.

This training has been made possible thanks to the Greater Manchester Combined Authority securing funding to deliver Skills Bootcamps, which form part of the Government’s Lifetime Skills Guarantee, helping everyone gain skills for life. Skills Bootcamps are fully-funded, flexible courses, giving people the opportunity to build up sector-specific skills and fast-track to an interview with an employer.

This Skills Bootcamp in Engineering Maintenance is aimed at those looking to progress into a Mechanical or Electrical Maintenance job. We are working with local employers who will be interviewing Skills Bootcamp candidates for jobs either immediately or in the near future.
