Learners will examine the inner workings of the automobile with a focus on the drivetrain.
This 50 hour theory component is combined with a 50 hour work placement. The work placement component must be set up with the school Career and Work Exploration teacher and provides the learner with hands-on experience in the automotive repair industry. This is an advanced level course that requires learners to demonstrate practical skills in combination with automotive repair theory.
All learners, parents, mentors and, where appropriate, school-based administrators are encouraged to familiarize themselves with our work placement policies.
