AUR30620-Certificate III in Light Vehicle Mechanical Technology

Overview

This qualification reflects the role of individuals who perform a broad range of tasks on a variety of light vehicles in the automotive retail, service, and repair industry.

Target groups for the AUR30620 Certificate III in Light Vehicle Mechanical Technology are domestic and international students who are:
  ● Seeking to pursue a career in light vehicle mechanical technology.
  ● Seeking to enter a new industry sector.
  ● Seeking a pathway to higher-level qualifications.

Characteristics of the target group are as follows:
Students will be from a range of countries and may be living in Australia for the first time or may have been here in the recent or more distant past.

Many will speak English as a second language, although an entry level has been set to ensure students are able to complete course work.

Students are expected to typically fall into the age range of 18 – 35 as people are still establishing or changing careers.

Credit and/or RPL can be provided for those with existing skills and knowledge allowing such students to complete the course in a shorter time frame.

It is noted that although we are required to offer RPL as per the Standards for RTOs 2015, it would not be expected that international students would pursue this pathway due to lack of relevant workplace experience and existing skills and knowledge.

The following units are included in this course, and all are required for the award of the qualification. If you successfully complete some but not all units, you will be awarded with a Statement of Attainment.
