The project will design a programme to assess and to train over 900 engineers nationwide to support them in developing skills needed to be a property maintenance engineer.

After the project industry efficiency will be increased by reducing travel time and ensuring jobs are completed on a first visit basis. This will increase customer satisfaction.

The resources used to achieve this will be available for industry to use.

  • Identifying skills gaps by assessing 575 engineers amongst 57 employers
