Conveyor Technician Career Pathways
Fenner offers industry-leading career pathways to becoming Technicians, Leading-Hands, Coordinators, Supervisors, and even Trainers/Assessors for future generations. We deliver Apprenticeships/Traineeships that are not only designed to provide a formal qualification to existing personnel, but also foster the development of new entrants into the conveyor industry.
Being our own Registered Training Organisation since 2007 (Fenner Registered Training Organisation), allows the added benefit of ensuring our personnel are trained and assessed to the highest industry standards. An integral part of these programs focus on instilling safety conscious attitudes amongst all personnel by providing intensive training in safe work practices.
Conveyor Technician Splicing Development
As an OEM of conveyor belting, splicing services are vital for our industry stability and workforce succession planning. As such, Fenner provides a conveyor splicing career pathway, encompassing trade recognition (in Queensland & Western Australia) and a nationally accredited qualification in Certificate III in Polymer Processing.
Formal off-the-job training is provided throughout the program, initially with the Splicing Practical Training Facility (PTF), followed on in the later part of the Appenticeship/Traineeship with the Block Release course in Melbourne’s Fabric Ply Factory. Whilst not at formal off-the-job training, valuable experience and knowledge is gained through on-the-job coaching and mentoring.
Conveyor Technician Mechanical Development
At Fenner Conveyors we believe mechanical services play a big part in ensuring conveyor efficiency and as such it is vital for our Mechanical Technicians to have adequate training to successfully perform all tasks.
As part of the mechanical conveyor technician journey, the first phase is completed through the Mechanical Practical Training Facility (PTF), with skills and knowledge further refined through on-the-job training. Further training is provided through the Mechanical Advanced Course, leading to national certification of Certificate II in Process Manufacturing, contextualised to Conveyor Maintenance.
