You could find yourself working for the government maintaining bus and transport fleets; working for a national Road Transport company managing their road worthy assessments; or subcontracting to mining or construction companies repairing and maintaining generators, pumps, compressors and drilling rigs.
This trade requires a four-year apprenticeship. MIGAS will facilitate your practical work placement with one of our quality host employers.
