Maintenance Training

Maintenance Training provides students with the skills and knowledge to safely undertake a wide variety of maintenance tasks on plant and equipment within industry.

A list of the Maintenance courses that Site Skills Training offers are listed below.

Welding Certification (Theory & Practical)

Advance your welding portfolio, and gain the theoretical knowledge required to apply for your Welding Certificate - to qualify, you must also complete the theory certification as prescribed by Australian Standards (AS) 1796 - 2001. This course covers knowledge of welding terms, codes and symbols, the effects of heat treatment on metal as it relates to welding, and the logical sequence for a welding process required to be conducted to AS 1796. It also covers welding, planning and set up principles for a range of materials and welding processes (Welding Certification Theory) Advance your welding portfolio and gain the practical skills required to apply for your Welding Certificate - to qualify, you must also complete the theory certification as prescribed by Australian Standards (AS) 1796 - 2001. Certification is mandatory for welders engaged in welding activities involved in the manufacture of pressure equipment such as boilers, pressure vessels and associated piping, as defined in AS / New Zealand Standards 1200 (Certification Practical).

Basic Hydraulics (Hydraulics 1) Training

This program provides candidates with a knowledge and understanding of hydraulic principles, components, symbols and circuit diagrams. This includes:

  • Hydraulic actuators – linear actuators, rotary actuator motors, hydraulic actuator calculations
  • Hydraulic pumps – gear pumps, vane pumps, piston pumps
  • Hydraulic control valves – directional control valves, check valves, flow control valves
  • Hydraulic pressure control valves - relief, unloading, sequence, counterbalance, brake, pressure reducing valves
  • Appropriate calculations
  • Fault finding

High Voltage Awareness Training

High Voltage Awareness training (ID 2066) provides essential knowledge for electrical and non-electrical workers who are required to work on and/or around High Voltage equipment. The course covers, hazards associated with HV, PPE required for working near HV Electrical Equipment, Lock out, tagging and isolation procedures, and first response to a HV incident.

Upon completion students should be able to undertake the following tasks:

  • Comply with PPE requirements when working near HV electrical equipment.
  • Identify hazards associated with working near or on HV apparatus and apply hazard control measures.
  • Comply with lockout, tagging and isolation requirements in accordance with permit procedures.
  • Carry out first response in an HV incident.

Hydraulics Awareness Training

Hydraulics Awareness is designed to give participants working in and around hydraulically operated plant and equipment, an awareness of the key hydraulics systems and components. Hydraulics Awareness is applicable to all working environments and all levels in the maintenance and operation chain.

The contents includes and awareness of:

  • Hydraulic safety principles
  • Hydraulic principles; physics and basic calculations
  • Components - type; use and symbols
  • Systems - common types; circuit diagrams
  • Basic fault finding

Introduction to Technical Drawings Training

Introduction to Technical Drawings introduces trainees to the interpretation and use of Process and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs) as well as other technical drawings used within the oil and gas industry, particularly in regards to gas transmission pipework and facilities.
