Scott Lockett

Years with APT?

3 years


Years of experience and in what areas?

Training and Assessing – since 2009 (machine specific until 2014) Workshop Manager for Mining Equipment OEM – 2 years Mechanical Service Engineer- Mining Equipment OEM- 2 years Fitter and Machinist- from apprentice up to leading hand- working on ship repair/building, mining equipment, power stations, open cut mines – 12 years


Highlight of your career to date?

Training tradespeople is very rewarding at times- when you can see students grasp difficult concepts it is always enjoyable. Also working on large projects such as Navy ships and huge open cut mining equipment can be a blast!


Most challenging work task to date?

Working with increasingly complex fluid power systems and circuits since joining APT keeps me on my toes. The Underground Loco and high-wall miner projects we undertook were big jobs in terms of timeframes and complexity.


What do like to do on your days off from work?

My 3 daughters keep me busy during downtime, and whenever I get the chance you can find me working on old muscle cars and drag cars, at home or with my friends.


One thing most people do not know about you?

I share the same birthday as Eddie Murphy, Marlon Brando and Ben Mendelsohn. OR I’m left-handed and left-footed.
