This is ideally suited to people who have completed an apprenticeship in the automotive industry and wish to progress to fully qualified status.

The Vehicle and Transport industry requires skilled and competent technicians, so if you are considering a career as a Mechanic, Vehicle Fitter or a Vehicle Technician, becoming an Apprentice is a valuable step in the experience and qualifications to help you succeed in the industry. Apprenticeships develop an extensive range of practical skills that include working on engines, transmissions, braking, steering and suspension systems.

Plus, enhance problem solving and analytical skills involved with diagnostics, fault finding and identifying solutions.

Apprenticeships will also develop your understanding of:

  • How vehicles are constructed and how individual components work together to create modern vehicle systems
  • Health and safety in the work place
  • How to communicate and interact with other people

The Advanced (Level 3) Apprenticeship will give you a fully qualified status and is the higher of two levels of Apprenticeship. (Intermediate (Level 2) gives you a semi-qualified status (see separate leaflet).  An Advanced Apprenticeship (Level 3) can be completed by the following pathways:

  • Light Vehicle Maintenance and Repair
  • Large (Heavy) Vehicle Maintenance and Repair
  • Body and Paint Operations (see separate leaflets for Refinishing and Body Repair)
     

You will need a work placement (4 days a week) in an independent garage, a fleet operator or franchised dealership where you will complete the majority of your assessments. You will attend Lincoln College one day each week to complete theory and practical training.
