- Outcome 2 - Demonstrate a knowledge of the legislative and management requirements within engineering operations
- Outcome 3 – Demonstrate knowledge of maintenance systems on-board
- Outcome 4 - Demonstrate the knowledge of safe systems of work within an engineering environment
- Outcome 5 - Demonstrate the knowledge of safe operations when undertaking lifting and/or slinging operations:
- Outcome 6 - Demonstrate the knowledge of the electrical distribution system on-board
- Outcome 7 - Demonstrate knowledge to maintain basic hydraulic systems
- Outcome 8 - Demonstrate knowledge and the practical skills to undertake basic maintenance
