Trainer /Assessor position available

We are unique …

At APT Specialist Hydraulics and Training we are passionate about helping businesses and individuals increase their knowledge and workplace safety. We don’t just provide training – we deliver customised packages tailored to the needs of each client that are relevant and engaging, combining industry-leading software simulation and practical hands-on exercises. 

To support APT’s ongoing growth, we are seeking two motivated individuals with either a mechanical or electrical trade background who would like to build on their experience in heavy industry by delivering Nationally Recognised Fluid Power training courses. We are one of only a few RTO’s in Australia delivering this type of training so the knowledge you gain will be a niche skill set that you won’t get anywhere else!

The opportunity…

As a Trainer and Assessor you will design, coordinate, refine and deliver quality training to clients; provide guidance and assistance to students to ensure training outcomes are met and individuals succeed.  The position requires someone who is a self-starter, engaging, has great communication skills and enjoys getting out of their comfort zone.

You need to have strong skills in hydraulics but not necessarily be a qualified trainer – you just need to be passionate about sharing knowledge, keen to learn (a lot!) and seeking responsibility. As this role requires regular travel you will need to be adaptable, flexible and able to work autonomously. In return, as part of the APT family, you will be well supported and have great flexibility and ongoing development opportunities.  

Some more about you…

  • Trade qualifications in Mechanical or Electrical 
  • A strong understanding of Hydraulics and Fluid Power
  • Understanding of electrical control systems
  • Keen to learn
  • Adaptable
  • Autonomous and seeks responsibility
  • Team player
  • Strong computer skills
  • Cert IV Trainer and Assessor will be highly regarded
  • Diploma or above Engineering Qualifications would be highly regarded
