Within the main workshop, there are six training bays where we undertake all aspects of welding and fabrication. As a student, you will be allocated a mentor for the duration of your training.
The in-house welding and fabrication training runs alongside a two-year BTEC level two course at the College of West Anglia. The ‘Improving Operational Performance’ course requires one day a week attendance at college.
Over the past ten years we have built up an excellent relationship with the college, and they work with our students to help them achieve high pass standards on the course. Most of our students then go on to study for a further two years in order to attain the level three Advanced Engineering Manufacture subsidiary diploma.
The key aspects of the training are fabrication, welding techniques and an understanding of engineering cad drawings. The students will have the opportunity to develop to their full potential whilst gaining qualifications and become the future of engineering at SB Components.
At our purpose built on-site facility we offer students in-house training with a guided mentor, the course is over a two year period. You will use instructions and body builder guidelines, you will have theory (classroom-based) and practical sessions. You will gain knowledge and understanding of electrical safety, circuit design and manufacturing standards, whilst working on commercial vehicles that have the latest technology in terms of road safety driving and commercial needs.
