The first step to an automotive apprenticeship starts here

Learn more about the automotive industry and gain experience in motor mechanics in this pre-apprenticeship course.

When you successfully complete the Certificate II in Automotive Servicing Technology, you’ll be able to carry out a variety of vehicle repairs and servicing tasks with confidence.

During the course, you’ll learn practical skills in areas such as inspection and servicing of batteries, suspension systems, tyres, transmissions, drive assemblies, and braking and cooling systems.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday
8.30am – 4pm.

Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
8.30am – 4pm.

Experienced teachers, who are experts in the field, will guide you through the program, which involves a combination of practical study and theory that is assessed at the end of each unit of competency.

While this nationally recognised qualification may lead to a motor mechanic apprenticeship, many students go on to study higher level courses before gaining employment.

The Certificate II in Automotive Servicing Technology can be completed over 12 weeks (three days per week) and students are able to enrol, commence and finish the course at different times throughout the year.

If you gain an automotive apprenticeship after finishing this course, the schooling component of your apprenticeship training may be reduced.

Once you successfully complete, you can develop your skills further with one of Chisholm’s Certificate III courses in the automotive field.
