Land Based Service Engineers will typically work on the employer’s premises under supervision and where appropriate and safe to do so, work on their own initiative. They work on a diverse range of tasks and machinery, plant and equipment specific to their sector within the Land Based Engineering industry.

These may include: Performing routine service and maintenance operations in accordance with manufacturer’s schedules and employer’s instructions; The preparation of equipment for repair such as, cleaning, dismantling and reassembly of machinery and their component parts in accordance with procedures or written briefs; Conducting routine machine operation and systems testing; Handing over machinery, plant and equipment to the control and use of others in the workplace.

These operations typically take place under the supervision of a senior technician in the workplace or on the customer’s site, in which case work may be undertaken outdoors. The nature of the job role presents challenges ranging from routine maintenance to the repair of elementary mechanical faults. This requires a diverse blend of skills, industry underpinning knowledge and the disciplines required for environmental and safe working practice.

There are three course pathways for this Apprenticeship; Agricultural, Outdoor Power Equipment (Groundcare), or Fixed Plant & Equipment. The pathway will be chosen depending on the nature of the organisation you are working in.

Please note that this course will take place at our Easton Campus
