This practical course covers electronic and computer servicing. You will learn how a PC works and build one from components. You will also learn how to upgrade and repair a PC. Programming skills for use in Industry and core Electronic skills are covered too.

This course covers the basic knowledge and understanding of the principles and methods involved in Engineering and technology.

The qualification covers one mandatory unit:

  • Introduction to working in Engineering.

Additionally, there are four optional units:

  • Introduction to machining engineering materials;
  • Introduction to cutting, forming and assembling engineering materials;
  • Introduction to joining engineering materials;
  • Introduction to basic Maths and Science used in Engineering.

If you want to progress into employment in the engineering industry, we can train you to a standard of practical proficiency and give you the opportunity to acquire appropriate practical engineering skills and knowledge.

The EAL Level 2 Diploma in Performing Engineering Operations is made up of 3 mandatory units and 3 optional units.

Mandatory units:

  • Working safely in an engineering environment,
  • Carrying out engineering activities efficiently & effectively,
  • Using and communicating technical information.
