You will also be taught how to fault find and how to dismantle and reassemble Mechanical and Fluid Power systems.

Career Opportunities:

Mechanical fitters can go on to be engineers or project managers working in the manufacturing, oil, gas and petro-chemical industries. Their skill level often makes them the first choice for management positions.
