AUR30620 Certificate III in Light Vehicle Mechanical Technology
COURSE CODE : AUR30620 | CRICOS CODE : 103635H

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The AUR30620 – 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 AUR30620 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 – Blended (Face to Face + Online) + Workshop Training.

The simulation training is for review of the learning activities, practicing communication, work based skills, management skills and to undertake other assessments e.g. project(s), presentation etc.

You will find the hands-on practical simulation training interesting and beneficial, so that you are able to perform tasks efficiently and effectively in an actual workplace which will build your confidence and competence.
