Hi,

Thanks for your post, it’s great you’re looking for advice and finding out what you to expect!

An Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Apprenticeship can be quite challenging but your training provider and employer will be on hand to offer you all the support you might need, so there's nothing to worrying about there.

From what you've described it seems like you're doing a Mechatronics Maintenance Technician Apprenticeship. If this isn't correct please let me know the name of the Apprenticeship you're going to be doing and I'll find the right information for you. A Mechatronics Apprenticeship will contain the below academic and practical units;

- Analytical and Scientific Methods for Engineers
- Project Design, Implementation and Evaluation
- Instrumentation and Control Principles and Applications
- Mathematics for Technicians
- Mechanical, Electrical, Electronic and Digital Principles and Applications
- Quality Assurance Principles within Mechatronic Systems
- Applications of Pneumatics and Hydraulics
- Health, Safety and Risk Assessment in Engineering
- Plant and Process Principles and Applications
- Condition Monitoring and Fault Diagnosis
- Business Improvement Techniques
- Complying with Statutory Regulations and Organisational Safety Requirements
- Working Efficiently and Effectively in an Engineering Environment
- Using and Communicating Technical Information
- Conducting Business Improvement Activities
- Producing Components using Hand Fitting Techniques
- Maintaining Mechanical Devices and Equipment
- Maintaining Electrical Equipment/Systems
- Wiring and Testing Electrical Equipment and Circuits
- General Turning, Milling and Welding Applications
- Producing Engineering Project Plans

Thanks,
Liam
