“Carrying out maintenance and repairs of land-based equipment”
Land-based engineering is a broad and highly specialised industry working with a vast array of machines. As an apprentice, you’ll train to work on a range of specialist vehicles and machines in a sector such as agriculture, forestry, horticulture, groundcare and fixed plant. Integral to the role will be keeping equipment in good working order through planned maintenance, as well as carrying out any diagnostic and repair work when required. As an intermediate apprentice, you’ll be able to choose between sports/groundcare technician and service technician. At the advanced level, you’ll undertake a more complex role with broader duties that could include selling, installing and using new and existing land-based equipment, or supervising a workshop where equipment is maintained and repaired. All engineering roles will require a high level of technical ability and a passion for fixing things.
