Course overview

Advanced Motor Vehicle apprentices could work for a specific dealership and focus on a particular manufacturer or work for an independent garage that deals with many different makes of vehicles. Apprentices learn how to carry out routine services on vehicles before undertaking more complex services, or maintenance and repair work. This advanced apprenticeship focuses on providing the skills and experience required to operate successfully as a service technician or mechanic, including the technical, health and safety and customer service elements of these roles. Apprentices will learn how to carry out routine maintenance and basic repairs, as well as identifying, recording, reporting and repairing faults. Training will include diagnostic testing activities on a range of different light vehicles such as cars and vans. You will be allocated a Bishop Auckland College assessor that will visit you within the workplace.
