The Motor Vehicle course is hands-on and practical from day one.
While working on the different cars in the garage you will get the skills to remove and replace various vehicle systems including tyres, brakes and suspensions as well as learning the principles of engines and electrical systems. Other areas covered include chassis and frame, engines, transmissions and vehicle servicing.
Do you live and breathe cars? Are motor vehicles your passion? With over 34 million cars on our road today; the demand for repairing and maintaining motor vehicles in today’s modern world is, and continues to be high. 42% of vacancies are hard to fill due to skills shortages and the industry shows no sign of slowing with a predicted growth of 3% until at least 2022 in our region which means companies are continually looking for people with the right qualifications and experience.
Our workshops are kitted out with everything you would find in a professional garage including Snap-on code readers, Picoscope oscilloscopes and Bosch KTS diagnostic equipment. You’ll have a range of vehicles to work on with an up to date online learning package that’s both interactive and enhance your learning experience. Outside of the workshop we organise trips, with our level 3 students having the opportunity to assist in the scrutineering of the local Track Rod Rally and industry related shows and employer visits from organisations such as Halfords and Teng tools.
