The Pearson BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Engineering Operations (Knowledge) is for learners working, or who are intending to work in, an engineering operative job role.

The qualification gives learners the opportunity to:
 develop the technical knowledge and understanding that underpins competence in an engineering operative role.

 learn about a range of transferable skills and professional attributes that support successful performance in the workplace

 achieve a nationally-recognised Level 2 qualification
