Motor Vehicle Service and Maintenance Technician Apprenticeship – Light Vehicle

If you want to make it to the top of the car industry, if you’re going to be one of the very best automotive engineers out there, then look no further than this course.

Written by employers within the automotive retail industry, the Motor Vehicle Service & Maintenance Level 3 Apprenticeship Standard is suitable for aspiring technicians. Learn to service and repair light vehicles, replace components, solve complex faults, use diagnostic methods and equipment, as well as a whole array of other skills.

A motor vehicle technician services and repairs light vehicles, working in either a dealership that focuses on a particular manufacturer, or for an independent garage. Working on all systems found within the vehicle, the nature of the work ranges from replacing simple parts, right through to diagnosing and rectifying complex faults with the use of diagnostic methods and equipment.

Everything on this course has been designed to give you an advanced skillset and everything you need to excel in the industry. You’ll be studying the components of vehicle maintenance in detail, working with complex systems across different vehicles, benefitting not only from theoretical and practical training at college, but also the knowledge/skills of your colleagues at work, and peers in your class, all of whom with different and varied experience across our very diverse industry.

Our workshop features industry-standard equipment and kit, exactly like a working garage and because of our association with the IMI, garages and workshops throughout the UK recognise that our graduates are talented and confident mechanics, ready to get to work in any automotive setting, employers therefore know an automotive qualification from The Cornwall College Group means you have the very best skills as an automotive technician.
