Certificate II in Automotive Servicing Technology gives Year 11 students a pathway to an apprenticeship in the automotive industry while earning up to 50 credits towards Stage 2 of the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).

In this hands-on 35 week course, students spent one day a week preparing for employment by learning work-specific skills in a simulated work environment that meets the needs of the automotive industry. Students must demonstrate competency in 20 units covering the knowledge and skills typical of those performed by apprenticeships in the early stages of training. On completion, students are awarded a nationally recognised apprenticeship qualification.

Topics include: the use of workplace tools and equipment, servicing and inspecting engine transmissions, cooling, fuel, steering, suspension, and braking systems, how to identify automotive faults and effective workplace communication. Students also spend 70 hours in a workplace undertaking Structured Workplace Learning to gain on-the-job training and mentoring while developing their technical skills and becoming more employable. 

Certificate II in Automotive Servicing and Technology can be studied as a stand-alone Vocational Education and Training subject or as part of a School-based Apprenticeship.
