Mechanical fitters fabricate, fit and assemble metal parts to production machines and other equipment in sectors such as mining, to keep things moving! They use a range of precision instruments, tools and engineering techniques to maintain and repair mechanical plant machinery and equipment to operational standards, checking parts for accuracy, and test and identify defective or worn mechanical components or equipment.
In this qualification, as an apprentice, you'll learn all that and more! Mechanical fitters may be employed in the trades and services industry area — often in Perth's industrial areas, or in the mining industry in areas such as the Pilbara, Kimberley and Goldfields.
From trucks to huge haulers and plant, if you love making things move this could be the one for you!
