The qualification has been specifically developed to meet the needs of the heavy vehicle automotive industry.
As part of their training, the apprentice is required to perform a range of work including overhaul, service and repair the mechanical parts of road transport vehicles such as the engine, transmission (clutch, gear box and differential) and the suspension systems (springs, steering, brakes, wheels and tyres).
They will repair and service cooling systems, diesel fuel systems, air conditioning, engine forced induction systems and clutch assemblies.
In addition, they will overhaul, repair and service engines, manual and automatic transmissions, air braking systems and final drive assemblies, and repair and service steering and suspension systems.
The repairs of ignition, electronic engine management and electrical systems, and safety/ roadworthy inspections are also encompassed in the heavy vehicle mechanic’s duties.
Successful completion of the course will result in the issuance of a Certificate of Qualification and a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment for AUR31120 in Heavy Commercial Vehicle Mechanical Technology.
