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 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:**
** AUR30920 Certificate III in Motor Sport Technology
** A2MOTOREC1 Motorsport Engineering units (short course required as part of the total program)

While it isn’t a regulatory requirement, students should be 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.
#### Field Placement
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.
#### Other Information
As is the nature of the motorsports industry and race meets, you will be required to do placements (and perhaps work experience with racing teams) on weekends.
