Vehicle restoration is a very specialist area, where demand for skilled technicians is high and salaries can be very rewarding. The skills are transferable to other sectors, so you could take your qualification and
move into the boat painting industry, where you could work around the world.

To become a qualified technician you must complete the Level 1 and 2 qualifications. At Level 2 you can choose to specialise in body repair or paint repair. Funding is available for school leavers for three years, so you could choose to do both paint and bodywork courses. We offer full Mechanical, Electrical and Trim (MET) training to provide you with the best start in the workplace.

This one-year introductory course to general accident repair will give you an insight into the various career pathways available.
