How would you like to complete a nationally recognised qualification – AUR20516 Certificate II in Automotive Servicing Technology – in around six months? You'll learn about the operation of vehicle systems and subsystems, and how to carry out servicing operations including inspection and service of engines, braking, cooling, steering and suspension systems. You'll also gain the knowledge and skills needed to service, maintain and repair these systems, as well as develop effective communication and teamwork skills and learn safe working practices.
Established in 1934, the Motor Trade Association of Western Australia (MTAWA) has been involved in training for apprenticeships and traineeships in the automotive industry for many years. The pre-apprenticeship program is delivered as a full time course through MTAWA's own registered training organisation.
You will attend three days of the week doing on the job training, and two days off the job training. Your training will include:
- practical workshop-based tasks ( demonstration and practice activities in simulated work environments);
- training room delivery (face to face, which includes theory, multimedia learning, group work); and
- work placement.
Completing a pre-apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to get hands-on experience with the work of an automotive service technician, and you will develop trade skills and experience that can give you a head start – and credit – for a full apprenticeship. Applications close 14 December 2018.
