Purpose

Industrial Machine Operation and Maintenance shall lay the foundation for working in manufacturing and assembly, and doing maintenance and repair work for land-based industries, offshore and shipyards. These kinds of industries are characterised by continuous technological development with increasing degrees of automation. The subject shall contribute to the stable and optimal operation of industrial machines and equipment.

Learning in the subject shall provide the apprentice with comprehensive skills in manufacturing and for assembling mechanical elements and doing maintenance and repairs on machines and equipment. Furthermore, learning shall contribute by developing the apprentice's ability to adapt to reorganization and developing a comprehensive understanding of mechanical processes. Learning in the subject shall promote an understanding of mechanical structures, along with adjustments and controlling these machines.

Learning in the subject shall prepare the apprentice for planning, executing, assessing and documenting his or her work. Furthermore, learning shall prepare the apprentice to work independently and cooperate with other professionals and trades, and promote professional development. Learning in the subject shall prepare the apprentice for working with Environment, Health and Safety at work. The company's organization and quality, information and decision-making systems are a part of learning.

Training completed and passed in the subject will lead to a Trade Certificate.

The professional title is Industrial Machinery Mechanic.

Main subject areas

Manufacturing and assembly

The main subject area covers planning of work tasks, selecting materials, and manufacturing, assembling and starting mechanical components in technical industrial machines and equipment. It also covers industrial assembly and surface treatment. The main subject area also covers planning and assembling automated pneumatic and hydraulic control systems for machines and equipment. Safe execution of lifting operations is a part of the main subject area.

Maintenance and repairs

The main subject area covers troubleshooting, error rectification and condition assessments on machines and equipment. Learning methods for joining materials, doing maintenance, testing and taking measurements on components are a part of the main subject area. The main subject area also covers connection and disconnection of electrical parts on machines and equipment, along with cleaning, lubricating and adjustment work.

Documentation and quality

The main subject area covers the use of working drawings, filling in forms, reading diagrams, following procedures, and understanding standards and control systems for planning, execution and documenting work. Registration of documents and dealing with deviations based on the company's requirements for Environment, Health and Safety & Quality are central aspects of the main subject area.

Basic skills

Basic skills are integrated into the competence aims for this course in areas where they contribute to the development of and are a part of the basic subject competence.
