Course overview

​This course provides the theory component of a light vehicle automotive apprenticeship. You will learn the knowledge, skills and applications required to begin a career as an automotive tradesperson. Competency based progression (CBP) apprenticeships in Victoria were previously time based, meaning apprentices were required to serve out the entire time of a training contract (generally four years for apprenticeships). Now apprentices operate under competency based training which places emphasis on the workplace application of attained knowledge and skills. Competency based progression means that as an apprentice completes a progression point, they may be entitled to a wage increase. Progression points are triggered at 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% of competition of the apprenticeship.
