This fully Te Reo Māori taught micro-credential is designed for secondary school students who are interested in working in the automotive industry. From tools and equipment, through to vehicle systems, components, and safe work practices, you will gain the foundation knowledge required to gain an effective introduction to the industry or explore a potential career pathway.

Smaller than a qualification, micro-credentials certify achievement of a specific set of skills and knowledge and are approved by NZQA. 

You will complete unit standards online via eLearning, and will have access to videos, learning activities and course assessments, which can be easily accessed at any time and from any device – mobile phone, tablet or PC.

  • Demonstrate knowledge of good work habits and safe work practices in the automotive industry
  • Demonstrate knowledge of tools and equipment used in the motor industry
  • Demonstrate knowledge of petrol and diesel engines
