EnerMech is the first company to be accredited by the Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) to deliver mechanical joint integrity (MJI) training courses in Australia.
The ECITB’s MJI courses provide initial training, backed by documented work experience and concluded with further practical and theoretical assessments, providing Australian industry with globally recognised MJI competency standards.
EnerMech’s ECITB approved trainer/assessors bring extensive theoretical knowledge and practical experience drawn from many years of involvement in the oil, gas and energy sectors.
The international mechanical engineering group also provides a range of Australian industry approved Joint Integrity awareness training modules that can be tailored to suit clients training requirements.
One major operator involved in the APLNG downstream project in Queensland has since enrolled its staff on the EnerMech MJI course, recognising the importance of field personnel being able to work to best practice standards.

EnerMech’s Joint Integrity Manager, Gary Sears, said: “Gaining ECITB accreditation reaffirms our commitment to providing high quality training for our own staff, external users and end-clients. Raising operating and safety standards is at the core of our business objectives and we are confident Australian clients who share the same values will be encouraged that we now have ECITB accreditation sitting alongside the key Australian energy industry approvals.”
EnerMech has operations in eight Australian cities stretching from Perth to Gladstone, Darwin and Melbourne, and employs more than 500 staff, with numbers expected to grow to more than 700 in the next year.
