Yes, the MTA WA's AIT is a Registered Training Organisation. If you are employed as an apprentice within a business then you are able to undertake your nationally recognised training at the AIT.
We deliver your off-the-job training while your employer delivers on-the-job training.

Most training blocks run for three days and apprentices attend one block of training per school term. Training consists of a range of theoretical and practical tasks followed by written knowledge testing.

Most apprenticeships take between 42-48 months to complete.
7. What is the course structure for an apprenticeship at the Automotive Institute of Technology (AIT)?
Course Delivery & Benefits:
- The program is structured over 3 years providing the employer with more access to their apprentices when they are needed most.
- A set number of units will be completed each year, ensuring clarity on the progress of the apprenticeship for both the employer and apprentice.
- A set number of days for classroom training will be allocated to each apprentice at the beginning of each year. This consists of approximately 4 blocks of training per year (with a minimum 2 days to a maximum of 4 days per block, in any one year).
- A clear focus is made on reducing the impact of classroom training on the employer and minimise workplace disruptions.
- A minimum number of trainer/assessor contact hours, for workplace visits per apprentice, will be undertaken each year to assist with transferring learning into the workplace.
8. Do I need my own tools for my apprenticeship?
No, you will be provided with a tool kit from the AIT when you commence your apprenticeship. However, if you would like to purchase your own this is also allowed.
