Fitting including Machinig

Fitters (including machining) are responsible for the mechanical maintenance of machinery, including the assembling and fitting of new components.

They also manufacture and construct components for machinery, using power-operated tools to a small extend, excluding the lathe.


The following modules/unit standards are done during training:

Basic Training

  • Make and fit a key
  • Drill a flange
  • Drill and tap holes
  • Make up a pipe system

  • Overhaul valves
  • Maintain and align couplings
  • Tension and align V-belts
  • Lift and move equipment

Advanced Training

  • Principles of pneumatics
  • Principles of hydraulics
  • Line up a fluid drive coupling
  • Overhaul hydraulic brakes

  • Overhaul an electromagnetic brake
  • Maintain clutches
  • Maintain gearboxes
  • Overhaul a multi-stage centrifugal pump

Final Training

During Final Training, learners receive intensive training to prepare them for the Trade Test. Training during this period includes all modules/unit standards trained in during the Basic, Advanced training phases.


For more information and specific modules/unit standards, please feel free to contact CTC's Mechanical Department.

Any part of the course can also be done as per client specification.
