Steel Fixing


The Steel Fixing course aims to equip you, the learner, with the skills, knowledge, and competencies required to work as Steel Fixers in the Construction Industry.

A steel fixer cuts and bends reinforced steel, and then binds it using stirrups made of thinner pieces of reinforced steel. Annealed wire is then used to attach the stirrups to the reinforced steel. It is then ready to be used where required in buildings for example in columns and foundations.

You will learn key practical skills and knowledge in:
– Conforming to General Health, Safety and Welfare in the Workplace
– Conforming to Productive Working Practices in the Workplace
– Moving, Handling and Storing Resources in the Workplace
– Cutting and Bending Reinforcement Steel to Shape in the Workplace
– Fixing Steel in Situ in the Workplace
– Prefabricating Reinforcement Steel Sections in the Workplace

The qualification is for learners who work or want to work as a steelfixer in the construction sector.

This is an Instructor-led, full-time day course.  It is a hands on, practice based course.

Learners can undertake this qualification without any previous training or qualifications in this subject area.  Learners must have functional skills in literacy and numeracy.  No previous experience is required, although previous construction experience would be an advantage.

On successful completion of this programme, learners will be able to demonstrate the skills, knowledge and competencies required to work as Steel Fixers in the Construction Industry. Learning outcomes specific to each module of the programme are listed in the module sections.
