Automatic door installer and service engineer apprenticeship

Prepare and safely carry out work activities in door automation

During the automatic door installer and service engineer apprenticeship, you’ll learn to work on a range of powered doors, such as sliding, swing, folding, balanced and revolving, which provide barrier-free building access, building security and user comfort, while contributing to meeting environmental obligations. Installations can take place on new building sites, during refurbishment of buildings and in already occupied buildings. Your key activities will include the installation, routine maintenance, fault finding and repair, commissioning and decommissioning of automatic doors. You’ll develop a thorough understanding of the engineering principles and safe operation of automatic doors. You’ll work without immediate supervision, and liaise effectively with other trades and with end-users. Your key responsibility will be to ensure that automatic doors used by the general public and employees are efficient and safe to use.
