STILL LOVE YOUR CARS, TRUCKS AND MOTORCYCLES?
We dare you to prove it!
You know that the industry has changed radically, and that some of the things you did on a daily basis a few years ago have now been superseded by new technologies and processes.
You have always moved with the times, picking up new skills and knowledge so you can continue to work with and give your best to the machines you love most - your cars, trucks and motorcycles.
You have credibility with your current customers as being a great problem solver and general all-round professional for their automotive needs.
So why does the VACC now challenge you now to get your skills and knowledge officially recognised?
It's proof positive that you have what it takes in today's Automotive industry, and gives new customers a great reason to choose you. It can benefit your business and career by opening doors that may have previously been closed without the proper accreditation.
The VACC has partnered with Kangan Institute's Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE), especially to recognise Automotive professionals who have a long history in the industry.
If you have been working in your current Automotive Mechanical (Light Vehicle, Heavy Vehicle, Motorcycle), Paint and Panel or Auto Electrical job for more than 7 years and can pass a few additional entry criteria, you may be eligible for a new certificate in the same area you work in - and not even have to go to school. Even if you have a qualification already, you may still be eligible.
I'm good at my job
All you have to do is prove your skills and knowledge in your job - what you know already, without having to pass bookwork exams.
You gather proof of where you have used your skills and knowledge and then demonstrate on-the-job to gain your qualification in a straight forward process known as recognition of prior learning.
Your Assessor has long experience in the industry and is there to help you get across the line in the quickest time possible.
The cost for a nationally recognised qualification?
If you pass the eligibility criteria, it's only $200.
The certificates available?
Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is available in a range of automotive areas including the following:
