This course is perfect if you’re looking to use your sound academic ability to fast track your skills and knowledge of car maintenance and repair further.
If you are expected to achieve 5 GCSE grades at 9– 5 (A*– C) including English Language and Maths, then you are now eligible to apply for our Fast Track Level 2 course. This would mean you can achieve a Level 2 and then potentially achieve Level 3 in two years, which is one less than the usual path of one year for each Level (1, 2 and 3). This would allow you to be qualified and working in a technician role a whole year sooner than those who traditionally start at Level 1 and build up from there.
Many main dealerships, especially those of premium brands are now looking for technicians with good academic results as well as excellent hands-on skills. You’ll learn how to service and repair cars and vans and how to diagnose and solve non-complex faults on vehicles. This is a fast-paced course with a high level of commitment required around theoretical course work as well as the equivalent of half a day in our workshops. You can expect to put everything you learn into practice on a range of different vehicles. You’ll also get to work alongside experienced technicians, so you can learn from people who already have vast experience in the trade.
