A Career in Automotive Heavy Engineering (JTJS72012)


hi my name is Dylan I’m looking at the pier apprentice scheme at City kid I really want to get into the automotive engineering side of things i’m looking for to spend some time to see here it’s early morning in christchurch and many are city kids vehicles are taking to the road getting out to maintain parks laid rains fix roads or sweep streets with operational bases right around the country and thirteen hundred plus staff sitting here is a leading New Zealand infrastructure service provider the Christchurch Milton Street depot is also a major center for maintenance and inside these workshops almost nine hundred different types of machinery and automobiles are serviced mark Ford was workshop manager here for six years as you will have been aware city care played quite a major role in that in the recent earthquakes here in Christchurch and the workshop in particular had had a philly large role in maintaining all the equipment that was running 24 hours a day obviously seven days a week during that period in that they really come into their own role in this particular part of the workshop we have automotive electricians heavy field mechanics in small part mechanics and they undertake an array of repairs them big-hitting engine overhauls the under basic servicing so err expectation as they get a wide range of school from the roof in the syria to business here going so I came to shoot someone student tough considering our career as a automotive mechanic Daniel gross a city care apprentice has had a call that one of their big rollers won’t start Dylan a damn hit off the trouble ships we’ve got a tractor here that’s pays off see lifters lights on and Flanders battery so just need to give him a jump start why something special about city care is that they jump start many young careers with an award-winning free apprenticeship scheme for someone like Dylan keen on cars the scheme will get them on the road to a job make it work for up to a year here and sitting here and working a number of different divisions and we give them the opportunity to work in a roadie construction traffic management based on water trees parks there’s a number of areas that they could they would be interested in Joe Dixon is a city care pre apprentice it’s a joke its first time climbing the tree how’d you feel cool experience both feeling we’ve it on edge at one stage being on the way back down felt we’re more comfortable we were sucking down at the end of the year and we would love to see what areas that they show an interest in we quite often try to match your students for the years that they’re quite passionate also know and good interest in anything we were looked at set them as a into formal qualifications which obviously automotive industry we would be using them through the workshop and they would be matched working my toe try and see Daniel who already has an advanced automotive electricians certificate is presently studying for a national certificate and automotive heavy engineering I done this is a new z10 hitoshi loader that we’ve just had to live it before it heads out onto the service we have to just check everything’s working ok as an automotive he OMG era princess have a choice specializing in three areas really agricultural equipment road and transport and plant and equipment and so we’ve got a park right out here to watch where folks before we india into the field under the lens fear now I see what the problem was stolen sounds put a lot on because that’s what we couldn’t see before at the front so we know making this guy out someone’s just put around the wrong way what do you think we are doing to fix it we have to do is turn it are simple on that yeah with the easy fix done the shiny new loaders heading off to its first job city care has a large range of machines throughout its organization and particularly now since the earthquakes happened in Christ huge we’ve had to have a large by up of specialist equipment everything from a mask Oh flicks truck with round a million dollars right down to half 5-ton diggers or work de said if you have to do with the earthquake recovers or primarily we were the first to respond to the wasting water the city drop a lot of water throughout the entire city and we were responsible for my actually trying to put that water back on yeah a number of our star probably worked up to close to 100 s and of course they were dealing with the emotional trauma of the earthquake yourselves and a number of people lost their homes so it was really a huge challenging time for everybody involved as you can see as we’re driving through this this particular area was devastated by the earthquake very badly affected this big city area is it weird lip perfection right through the roads and obviously he has the seasons this this is really almost fully yes particularly your hostage it’s mark we just wanted to take mark gets a call not far away there’s a track that’s broken down an apprentice Dan is heading out to fix it so you’ve got overheating from what’s actually happened today does this come on in the gauge is going right into the reef okays on well we’ll have a lot of care but we’ll see what’s happened here okay good luck cool pull the slavery out so that safety latch the ER and I mean yep it up and then all that labor out yup you go and push that button comes out in with such a large amount of content sitting here there’s a huge diversity on the skill sets that are made up in technology is playing a very very big part and that’s one of the challenging aspects of becoming apprentice nowadays it’s actually keeping up with technology keeping abreast of it all the way through we know vehicles fight we can’t just pop over the cat so we just need to have a visual chief why why can’t we pop over the cap because there’s a lot of appreciate is here’s the vehicle heats up it creates pressure in the cooling system and a few open the cat it will just be so panini or could damage yours or burn yourself like that next thing for a look round in just cheeky a visual check see we’ve got any water leaks anywhere the qualities I would look for in a young person nowadays certainly some with her who’s quite passionate about it and has a really good attitude and ability to be able to learn and what him want to learn and be challenged all the way through his apprenticeship so even that looks all right here yeah captain tiny wheats which pictures looks forward okay all right get down and we’ll have a look underneath a yeah I think there’s some water dripping from there hi there is tone so Dan calls for a tow back to the workshop the track will be fixed by tomorrow that’ll sell extremely laughter day he showed good keen attitude towards that mechanical side of her business and he would be the type of guy that will be looking to employ in the future through a motto apprenticeship that’s been real well I’ve seen a lot of jobs through our city care I like the idea of fixing our big trucks and I’d like to get into the automated heavy engineering side of things there’s a heavy engineering qualification available in the National Certificate in motor industry separate strands are available for agriculture equipment plant and equipment and Road Transport you can learn at your own pace and fit your study in with the demands of your job setting cares pre-apprenticeship scheme can lead to a full apprenticeship with my toe qualifications supporting local content so you can see more of New Zealand on air
