Industrial equipment mechanics work in a plant and maintain mobile conveyances that may include mobile cranes, bulldozers, forklifts, manlifts, trackmobiles, gas and diesel vehicles, mobile pumps and stationary engines. Work involves the repair or replacement of chassis and component parts, brakes, clutches and transmissions, engines, pneumatic and hydraulic brake systems, electrical systems, fuel injection systems, fuel pumps and carburetors, both gas and diesel.
Most work is typically carried out indoors in a plant facility. The work requires both upper body strength and fine motor skills. There is significant bending and squatting in some of the repair work.
These programs are limited to current employees of training agents registered with the local apprenticeship committee. These programs may have limited opportunities available.
