Institution to train as a technician for industrial diesels and hydraulics?Watch
But does anyone know if in UK there is a program at a school or college where one can do a course under 6 months to train or prepare specifically for the theoretical aspects of how to be a technician for engines and hydraulics that goes into a CAT or John Deere machinery?
Also ideally does not require any GCSE qualifications and open to those above the age of 21.
Must be in English only and reach either NVQ Level III.
Thanks in advance
Either way, there will be generalised courses which will teach principles of machinery/engines in principle (e.g. this one) but specific training will almost certainly be provided by the manufacturer. These days one of the key aspects will be the software and hardware used for electronic diagnostics, which will generally be manufacturer specific. Whether they'd be prepared to offer that training to someone not working as a technician for one of their dealers I couldn't say. I suspect an apprenticeship at a dealer is the normal route in, but I guess that's not the kind of thing you're looking for.
If you want, send me a PM with a bit more detail on what you're trying to do - I may be able to give a little more info but I don't want to post it in the main forum.
