Automotive

Our automotive department is designed for students who are passionate about cars, motorcycles and the technology involved in road-safety. Our program provides training in servicing, maintenance, installations and engine repairs for both cars and motorcycles. We also provide students with the technical knowledge of computerised wheel alignment and car electronics. Our program is designed to equip students with the key skills necessary to work for a wide-range of companies and organisations involved in the design, development, manufacturing, maintenance and selling of motor vehicles.
