Our sustainable strategy is a movement towards fostering a culture of environmental advocacy across far reaching industries, from power generation to water supply. By joining the CAFA group, AEMT is pledging to a cause, and actively leading the way in environmental sustainability within the electro-mechanical sector.
"AEMT are genuinely inspiring in the way they are speeding up their emission reductions activity and have introduced a net zero working group as well as planning climate related policies. The importance of the electro-mechanical sector cannot be underestimated. The CAFA Net Zero Association team is looking forward to working with AEMT on its net transition plan over the next few years." Alison Heppenstall, CEO, CAFA.

The IECEx Recognised Training Provider (RTP) scheme is a special initiative that recognises organisations for their commitment to delivering training services concerning equipment used in potentially explosive atmospheres. The Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT) is a proud participant in the IECEx RTP scheme, offering comprehensive training in the repair, maintenance, and reclamation of such equipment.
There are numerous organisations that provide training in handling equipment for explosive atmospheres, known as Ex technologies. However, not all of these adhere to the structure and requirements of IECEx Operational Documents OD 503 and OD 504, which support the IECEx Certified Persons Scheme, a mark of high-standard training to which AEMT conforms.
The RTP status by IECEx is awarded to organisations that have successfully undergone a rigorous review process in accordance with the IECEx Operational Document OD 521.
The primary goal of training provided by an IECEx RTP, such as AEMT, is to enhance the participant's knowledge and prepare them for assessment under the IECEx CoPC Scheme. This scheme is intended for individuals who wish to obtain the IECEx Certificate of Personnel Competence, issued by an approved IECEx Certification Body after assessing competence.
It's important to note that attending training with an RTP does not equate to certification or attestation of competence. It is not to be considered as evidence that competence has been assessed according to the IECEx CoPC Scheme requirements. The training primarily aims to equip the attendee with pertinent knowledge and skills to work safely in explosive atmospheres.
The AEMT supports and endorses the work of Primary Engineer.
Its core aims include; the development of children and young people through engagement with engineering, the promotion of engineering careers through inspiring programmes and competitions, the development of engineering skills for teachers and practitioners addressing the inequalities in engineering.
They have developed a project-based learning approach to education which enables children and pupils to engage with practical math’s and science alongside creative problem solving and literacy. It has been described as STEM by Stealth® due to the integrated curriculum nature of the programmes which also develop resilience and curiosity.
Strong links to engineers and the industries they work in provides an opportunity for both pupils and teachers to expand their knowledge of careers, career paths and opportunities.
