Framework training programme

For a subject as important as UDT equipment maintenance, the course needs to cover both theoretical and practical issues to provide a solid foundation for those wishing to work in the profession. Classes last 32-96 hours, depending on the level of the group and the training needs of the participants. In the theoretical classes, instructors teach, among other things:

  • Construction, mode of operation, types of equipment to which the training is devoted
  • Safety rules for maintenance work
  • Regulations and other legislative provisions concerning the technical inspection of material handling equipment
  • methods for carrying out technical inspections and removing frequently occurring defects
  • Issues related to electrical, mechanical, hydraulic parts
  • Use manuals and create documentation

An integral part of the training is the practical classes we conduct using our equipment.

Those who take both parts of the course and pass the internal exam will be able to take the state exam before the UDT commission. The exam is organised as part of the course, on a date set by UDT.

UDT authorisations and job opportunities after the course

All those who pass both parts (theoretical and practical) of the state exam are granted a UDT licence to maintain a given type of equipment. The licence is valid for 5 years and allows you to work all over Poland.
