In industry, an increased need for further education past the traditional apprenticeship is recognised. There is a known issue with aging maintenance workforce and loss of tacit knowledge through retirement. This paper investigates the skills and knowledge required for the modem maintenance workplace and how this might be implemented in a technician population. Potential educational and pedagogical solutions are offered in this paper, as well as a practical example. Finally, a specific course of learning is suggested.
