Programme Name Certificate IV in Plant Maintenance Engineering
Programme Description
This course aims to meet the needs of students who have a general interest in industrial technology trades as well as those intending to choose a career pathway into traditional Plant Maintenance Engineering trades and related service industries. Fiji is currently experiencing a skills shortage in traditional Plant Maintenance Engineering trade areas. There is also an increasing demand in Fiji and elsewhere for people able to assume highly skilled roles in areas deploying rapidly developing technologies. There is a need for more highly trained new workers and up-skilling of existing workers in the manufacturing and service industries as the levels of newer technologies are increased. For example, there are vastly more complex electronics systems to be fitted and serviced in the Plant industry and new materials and techniques in the building industry. Everybody is affected to some degree by the need to understand and effectively use advancing technology in the Industries and power plants, workshop, the construction site, the factory, office, home or farm. This course provides opportunities for students to develop relevant technical, vocational and interpersonal competencies suitable for employment and further training. They can also develop skills, knowledge and experiences - such as teamwork, communication and occupational health and safety- that are transferable to other industries.
