About the course

Course Number: AUR10112-01V01

Are you looking for a way into the automotive industry, to work with cars, motorcycles, light vehicles, spray painting, power tools and equipment, or even bicycles? The Certificate I in Automotive Vocational Preparation is a starting point, even if you’re still at school. You’ll learn the basic skills you need to understand how to work in an automotive business, and to help you choose exactly which sort of automotive industry you’d like to work in. The course is designed to be studied with supervision, such as VET in Schools (VETiS) or other equivalent introduction to industry environments. This qualification is suitable for an Australian Apprenticeship, and it may also be suitable for a cadetship, or a part time or casual job, where you don’t need a full range of skills. When you’ve completed this course successfully, you may find a job in retail, service or repair in sectors such as Bicycle, Automotive Electrical, Outdoor Power Equipment, Light vehicle, Vehicle Body and Paint Detailing, Motorcycle, Marine or Heavy Vehicle.
