Dutch term or phrase:Installatiemonteur
On a Dutch diploma (beroepsonderwijs).
I've found the translation "installation engineer" on an official Dutch education website, but certainly in Australia this would not be a correct translation, since engineer is not usually associated with vocational training
The tasks of this installatiemonteur include gas fitting & plumbing.
Explanation: Stadard expression in Australia: installation mechanic. Installation Technician souds better and is the same. I think we're both working on the same translation job, Tineke.

Explanation: See the following website: http://www.commerce.wa.gov.au/EnergySafety/Content/Licensing...
"Licensing of gas fitters
The risks associated with an unsafe installation are high, so the work must be restricted to competent (licensed) workers. To emphasise the nature of the hazard, these installations can appear to operate well yet be unsafe. For example, a gas installation could seemingly operate satisfactorily without adequate ventilation, until dangerous circumstances arise where people could then be exposed to dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.
A licensing system is in place to ensure only competent workers carry out gas installing work. Under this scheme, only licensed people can undertake gas installation work."
