The light vehicle maintenance and repair course is mainly aimed at switched on individuals who are looking to enter into the vehicle maintenance and repair sector. This highly paid skill is transferable, meaning that there is a wide ranging list of careers that this qualification is applicable to as an entry point.
A student will be gradually introduced to different skills by time served industry specialists. Students will initially start on small projects and gradually build their skills until they are ready to take on more challenging work and projects.
The Course runs from September to June for 35 weeks for two nights in the evening 5:30-8:30pm. There is also a requirement for digital blended learning away from college each week. This will be set by your tutor through Microsoft Teams. There are nine units needed to be covered to achieve the qualification. Skills are taught during practical sessions in a simulated industry standard workshop environment and the knowledge or theory side is taught in mechanical themed learning spaces.
Your learning experience
