Do cars, trucks and motorcycles really get your engine revving? Are you looking for a hands-on career where you can combine your love of engines with a qualification and varied employment opportunities? Then our automotive courses are a great place to start.

Our mechanical automotive courses will give you the skills and knowledge to work as a qualified mechanic on light vehicles, diesel engines or motorcycles. Our courses start at pre-apprenticeship level which lead to apprenticeships and traineeships, as well some post-trade courses.

Latest skills and technologies

As a student, you’ll learn the basics right through to emerging technologies such as the latest hybrid vehicles. Our industry connections with Ford, Mazda, Toyota and Bosch mean you’ll learn on both donated projects and cars for real clients. We also have the leading diagnostic equipment of any TAFE in Victoria, so you can be sure you’re getting the latest industry skills.
