The 11 job positions are: Resident Technical Officer (RTOf), Clerk of Works (CoW), Company Site Representative (CSRep), Draughtsperson, HSE Officer, Heavy Goods Vehicle's (HGV) driver, Carpenter, Scaffolder for Construction, Building Electrician, Air Conditioning Technician and Plumber / Pipe Fitter.

Through the i-Ready Apprenticeship Programme ARMECS Trainees are required to undergo a 6 months’ ARMECS Bridging Program at designated consulting firms registered with Board of Architects, Professional Engineers & Quantity Surveyors (BAPEQS). After completing their bridging program, they will then continue their apprenticeship as i-Ready Apprentices at the designated host organization within the Construction Industry.
