F3 Operator & Maintenance Training
F3 Operator Training
Due to the ease of use of the F3 mine detector and the low requirement for spare parts, tools, equipment and maintenance the requirement for training at all levels is minimal.
F3 Maintenance Training
Levels of Maintenance for the F3 mine detector comprise:
Level 1 maintenance includes replacement of all major components and most minor components of the F3 mine detector. This level of maintenance can be conducted at demining field sites or local depots if required. Level 1 maintenance includes full functional testing of the detector and does not require any specialized facilities but does require the F3 Service Tool Kit.
Level 2 maintenance encompasses Level 1 maintenance plus repairs to the earset earphone and coil socket replacement. This level of maintenance requires basic electronic workshop facilities and the F3 Service Tool Kit.
Level 3 maintenance encompasses Level 1 and Level 2 maintenance, plus electronics pack PCB repair. Level 3 repairs are only conducted at Minelab's repair workshops located in Australia, Ireland and the USA.
