The qualification has been specifically developed to meet the needs of the light vehicle automotive industry. As part of their training the apprentice will perform a range of work including the service and repair of the mechanical parts such as the engine, transmission (clutch, gear box and differential), and the suspension systems (springs, steering, brakes, wheels and tyres).
They will perform tasks including discussing problems with drivers/users to discover faults and carry out their own diagnostic procedures.
They will repair and service engines, cooling systems, exhaust systems, diesel fuel systems, engine forced induction systems and clutch assemblies.
In addition, they will repair and service manual and automatic transmissions, braking systems, final drive assemblies, and steering and suspension systems.
The repair of ignition, electronic engine and drive management systems is also encompassed in the light 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 AUR30620 - Certificate III in Light Vehicle Mechanical Technology.
