In an increasingly busy world, demand for quick, responsive, relatively simple high street vehicle repair has seen companies like Kwik Fit become national success stories. To fill the skills demand for experienced technicians who can operate in a fast-paced garage environment, specialising in a few specific areas we have developed the Fast-Fit Mechanic programme.
You will need to have completed the Level 1 full-time introductory course, before moving on to specialise in fast fit, either full-time or via an apprenticeship. Once you have completed the Level 2 qualification, you will be able to work in the industry in a junior role.
