Are you a mechanic with no formal qualifications, or would you like to train for a job as a mechanic or vehicle repair technician? The level 3 City & Guilds Diploma in Vehicle Maintenance and Repair at City College Plymouth could be the right choice for you.
This course is aimed at building on the level 2 and introducing you to the more complex systems of today. Your training will cover the operation and diagnosis of vehicle systems including the engine, chassis, electrics and transmission. You’ll undertake research projects which enable you to become more autonomous and able to work on your own initiative with support and guidance coming from the tutor.
It’s a fast-moving course with attendees covering the same amount of content as our full-time students but spending just one day a week on campus, which is why considerable experience working with cars is required for entry.
