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 inspect and service engines and suspension systems, cooling systems, and clutch assemblies. You also learn how to repair and service manual transmissions, braking systems, final-drive assemblies, and steering and suspension systems. Repairs to ignition, engine, and management systems are also encompassed in the duties of the mechanic. You will learn racetrack experiences, discuss problems with drivers and users to discover faults and carry out your own diagnostic procedures.
As part of the program you will also learn composite techniques, computer aided drawing, CNC machining, welding, hand and power tools to provide the broad grounding of skills and knowledge to enter the MotorSport workplace.
Motorsport students in the first year program will be admitted and enrolled into two courses:
** AUR30916 Certificate III in Motor Sport Technology
** A2MOTOREC1 Motorsport Engineering units (short course required as part of the total program)

Students 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 2019 these placements were conducted with various teams across Winton Motor Raceway's main event of the year, V8 Supercars. Every student was placed with a team, ranging from Touring Car Masters (TCM), Super 3, SuperUtes, Formula Ford and main series V8 Supercars.
Government Funded $3,090.00 (Tuition $2,170.00, Materials $920.00)
Concession $1,354.00 (Tuition $434.00, Materials $920.00)
Fee For Service $10,685.00 (Tuition $9,765.00, Materials $920.00)
A2MOTOREC1 Motorsport Engineering units (short course required as part of the total program) will incur additional fees at the time of enrolment.
The student tuition fees published are indicative only and can be subject to change given individual circumstances at the time of enrolment. Funding made available to eligible individuals by State and Commonwealth Governments. If funding is utilised, this may affect future opportunities to access additional funding in the future. For more information see ‘Fee information and eligibility’ under the 'Apply Now' tab on the Wodonga TAFE website.
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.
This could be a stepping stone into an engineering career by taking up further study opportunities via university and possibly gaining recognition of prior learning. Should you change your mind, after completing this qualification the vast majority of your study will be complete already should you wish to undertake a general auto mechanic apprenticeship.
[See Uni Pathways](/Support-Services/Pathways/Pathways-to-University)
- Motorsports mechanical assistant
- Mechanic apprenticeship with a motorsports team
By successfully completing this course you will receive a nationally recognised AQF Qualification
The assessments will enable students to demonstrate the underpinning knowledge, skills and attributes required to meet the course outcomes. A range of assessment strategies to meet different student’s needs will be selected, including reports, tests, practical assessments of your abilities, placement assessments and demonstrations.
