About this Course

Most racing teams see this qualification - and studying with Motorsports Training Australia - as the minimum point of entry into the industry. Many of our graduates have achieved excellent employment outcomes in the motorsports industry after they have completed this certificate. You learn to service and repair engines and suspension systems, cooling systems, exhaust systems, diesel fuel systems, engine-forced induction systems, and clutch assemblies. You also learn how to repair and service manual and automatic transmissions, braking systems, hydraulic systems, final-drive assemblies, and steering and suspension systems. Repairs to ignition, electronic engine, and drive management systems are also encompassed in the duties of the mechanic. You learn to discuss problems with drivers and users to discover faults and carry out your own diagnostic procedures. Further study is available in a Certificate IV or enter an apprenticeship in the motorsports/auto performance industry or allied trades.

Field Placement

Students are required to undertake placements that are organised by Motorsports Training Australia. These placements are with our industry and racing partners, and enable students to get a real-life, real-work feel for their chosen career. As an example, in 2015 these placements were conducted with Pedders Racing as MTA students saw to all maintenance both off-track and in pit lane throughout the Australian Manufacturers Championships Class D 2015 season (which we’ll add, MTA students helped Pedders Racing take out the championship!).

Entry Requirements

While it isn’t a regulatory requirement, we insist students are at least 17 years of age. This is a demanding but hugely rewarding course, and as most of our students are not local, many of them relocate to the Wodonga area, and subsequently live out of home for the first time.
