The Certificate IV in Motor Sport Technology AUR40320 is designed for students who have either completed the Certificate III in Motor Sport Technology AUR30916 or AUR30920, or have completed another Mechanical qualification, such as Light Vehicle Mechanic or similar.
This program develops more advanced technical skills in preparation for a successful career in the industry. Theory (classroom activity) is consolidated with ‘hands-on’ workshops and trackside experience with a range of MTA equipment including a V8 Supercar, Formula Ford, karts, a speedway car and other vehicles from our partner organisations.
- On-campus – The majority of teaching and assessment is conducted on-campus

ON-CAMPUS, FULL-TIME: 10 MONTHS
You need to have completed the (AUR30916 or AUR30920) Certificate III in Motorsport Technology, or be able to demonstrate equivalent competency (Light Vehicle Mechanic).
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!).
As is the nature of the motorsports industry and race meets, you will be required to do placements (and perhaps extra work for racing teams) on weekends.
This could also 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.
