Motor Mechanic Options in Australia

27th June 2023 | SuccessVisa

The purpose of this video is to provide a brief overview of the three main types of mechanics:

1. Motor Mechanics (General)

2. Diesel Mechanics

3. Automotive Electrician

The following video includes an explanation from Amit, CEO of SuccessVisa, an Educational and Migration consultancy in Australia, about the key differences between their job duties and the qualifications required for each. Motor mechanics in Australia are mainly engaged in the repair of light vehicles and petrol engines, while diesel mechanics are primarily engaged in the repair of heavy vehicles and diesel engines. Automotive electricians focus on vehicle wiring, lighting, and ignition systems, particularly computer-operated or digital vehicles.

Additionally, Amit discusses the specific certification programs required by each profession in Australia.

- Certificate III Heavy Commercial Vehicle Mechanical Technology

- Certificate III in Light Vehicle Mechanical Technology

- Certificate III in Automotive Electrician Technology

The courses usually last two years and can lead to the issuance of a 485 Visa or a work visa.

Amit explains that classes are available on both weekdays and weekends, with evening classes offered as well.
