About the course

Course Number: AUR32416-01V01

Are you a person with artistic flair, looking for a career in a steady industry? Our Certificate III in Automotive Refinishing Technology is not just suited to those with a particular interest in cars, but to those with good attention to detail. You will receive hands-on training at TAFE and in the workplace, with highly-skilled facilitators, who have solid industry links. Our industry recognised I-CAR training  courses ensure apprentices receive current industry information and the latest skills and knowledge.

North Coast TAFE offers I-CAR accreditation through our industry training alliance, which is highly regarded by potential employers. There is a large range of jobs available in the automotive industry on the North Coast and it is an industry that does not tend to fluctuate like others. There are also many other career paths for spray painting outside of the automotive industry.

The coursework combines practical and theoretical work and is taught in both classes and workshops.

This qualification is suitable for an Australian apprenticeship pathway, including a school based apprenticeship.

All students enrolled in this course must be apprenticed in the industry.  Assessment and completion of the course requires access to a fully equipped workplace, under supervision.  All our NC TAFE Automotive courses are classroom and blended delivery modes, including discussions, working in groups, and workplace log books.  Students work with real automotive vehicles and equipment in simulated environments on campus.
