About the Course
AUR20516 Certificate II in Automotive Servicing Technology
Learners develop the principles underpinning the operation of vehicle systems and subsystems. They learn to carry out servicing operations, inspect and service engines, braking, cooling, steering and suspension systems. They also develop the knowledge and skills needed to service, maintain and repair these systems. Students develop effective communication, teamwork skills, safe working practices and environmental awareness when developing solutions to planning and managing automotive vehicle systems.
To achieve the Certificate II in Automotive Servicing Technology, learners must successfully complete twenty (20) units of competency made up of thirteen (13) core units and seven (7) elective units and participate in work experience throughout the program.
Our pre-apprenticeship program gives you the opportunity to gain a realistic expectation of the work involved in a particular trade and develop basic trade skills. A pre-apprenticeship typically takes six months and could help you secure an apprenticeship. What you've learnt during your pre-apprenticeship will also provide credit transfers towards completing your apprenticeship.
The qualification is delivered as a full time Pre-apprenticeship course (approximately 6 months). Students attend two (2) days on the job training at AIT and three (3) days off the job training. This invariably gives the employer a chance to consider them for an apprenticeship.
Mode of delivery
The delivery mode utilises a simulated workplace where learning strategies are developed that reflect work practice.
This program will be delivered through a range of teaching and learning strategies. These include:
- Practical workshop based tasks (these involve demonstration and practice activities in simulated work environments).
- Training room delivery (face to face, which includes theory, multi media learning, group work).
- Work placement which allows learners to be “fully immersed in a work environment” for part of their training.
Learners are supplied with structured activities, learning resources, trainer/assessor industry knowledge and practical demonstration of the skills required in the performance criteria, range statement and critical aspects for the units of competence.
All learners are treated equitably, having regard to their particular needs, in order to ensure the provision of every reasonable opportunity for the learner to acquire the competencies of the qualification.
It is highly desirable that applicants have a WA drivers licence or have made significant progress to attaining a licence.
