The role of a welder is found in a wide range of sectors where piping systems are used for fluid transport and pressure containment. The broad purpose of the role is to manually weld tubes and pipes to high standards of quality and integrity using a minimum of two manual arc welding processes: Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) and Manual Metal Arc (MMA). The final components being welded are often used in highly safety critical applications for the movement and control of fluids and gases which can be high temperature, highly flammable, corrosive and extremely high pressure. You will be trained to work within strictly defined processes and procedures to exacting standards and ensuring compliance with health, safety and environmental regulations.Sometimes operating autonomously, a welder must also operate effectively within a wider team which often involves other occupations such as riggers and pipefitters. Successful completion of the 4 year programme delivers a professional qualification recognised by the Welding Institute.
The role of a pipefitter is integral to every major Engineering Construction project and involvesworking with various pipe materials such as ferrous and non-ferrous metals, plastics andcomposites in a huge range of sizes and thicknesses. The training programme will equip youwith the knowledge and skills to implement the specified method of jointing required within often complex piping systems. You will be trained to work within strictly defined processes and procedures to exacting standards and ensuring compliance with health, safety and environmental regulations. Sometimes operating autonomously, a pipefitter must also operate effectively within a wider team which often involves other occupations such as riggers and welders. Successful completion of the 3 year apprenticeship programme will provide a globally recognised Level 3 Diploma in Installing Engineering Construction Plant and Systems (RQF).
Rigger / Erector:
The roles of an erector and a rigger are vital in any engineering construction environment. An erector installs and dismantles steel infrastructure using static and mobile moving and lifting equipment. A rigger is responsible for the safe lifting, moving and positioning of loads of all shapes in sizes often in complex and dangerous environments. In both roles you will be trained to work within strictly defined processes and procedures to exacting standards and ensuring compliance
with health, safety and environmental regulations. Sometimes operating autonomously, you must also operate effectively within a wider team which often involves other occupations such as pipefitters and welders. Successful completion of the 3 year apprenticeship programme will provide a globally recognised Level 3 Diploma in Engineering Construction Lifting, Positioning and Installing Structures, Plant and Equipment (RQF) in either Erecting or Rigging.
A Project Controls Technician controls, monitors and systemically analyses progress and performance data on engineering, manufacturing, construction and infrastructure projects. Using software tools to undertake tasks including identifying the right data for scrutinising progress, setting baseline targets, forecasting trends, assessing impact of design/construction changes and using insight to recommend early preventative and remedial actions. Successful completion of the 3 year apprenticeship programme will provide a globally recognised Level 3 Diploma in Project Controls Practice and Techniques (RQF).
