You’ll develop the skills to assemble, install, test, repair, pre-commission, commission, handover and de-commission ductwork made from a wide range of materials, as well as oversee the work of others, and understand the importance and function of the system to be installed. You’ll also interact with the latest technologies, such as building information modelling, and learn to understand and interpret drawings.
