COURSE CODE : AUR30616 | CRICOS CODE : 0101307

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The AUR30616 – Certificate III in Light Vehicle Mechanical Technology reflects the role of individuals who perform a broad range of tasks on a variety of light vehicles in the automotive retail, service and repair industry.

This course examines service and repair of mechanical, electrical and electronic components and systems associated with light vehicle engines, suspension, steering, braking, transmissions, ignition and electrical accessory systems and related components.

Tasks also include discussing problems with customers to detect faults through various diagnostic procedures and use of specialised diagnostic equipment. The introduction of electronic control for engine, emission and dynamic vehicle control systems has given an added dimension to the complexity of this tradition motor mechanic’s work.

COURSE DETAILS

After successfully completing AUR30616 Certificate III in Light Vehicle Mechanical Technology, students may apply for:

  • AUR40216 Certificate IV in Automotive Mechanical Diagnosis
  • AUR40812 Certificate IV in Automotive Mechanical Overhauling

This course is delivered in a structured classroom environment which includes the ACFE purpose built workshop and computer laboratory.

The program will be delivered over 78 weeks (holiday inclusive, and 2 days (7 hours each) per week Online learning) and 1 day (6 hours – self-paced structured e-learning).
