Fives maintenance formation Foucat-FIVES Fives in Maintenance

I was very interested in the field of maintenance, and I knew quite well how to work with turning machine and machine tool. Once I heard about this maintenance training, I immediately signed in.
I totally dedicated myself into school lessons and I practiced with every member of my team, so I could get more experience and skills with various pieces of equipment. At the end of my training, I was hired as service engineer on a permanent basis where I did my work experience.”

I already worked for 2 years at Fives Maintenance as a technician. My job consisted in current maintenance such as draining, cleaning and greasing, and my days started to sound like routine to me. That is why I decided to go back to school, so I could develop my experience and improve my skills.
I still work as technician, but now I am specialized in machine tool maintenance and repairing. This is a very skilful job and that is what I like about it.”
