Motorcycle Maintenance Diploma

If you want to excel in the motorcycle industry, the type of mechanic that can fix almost any problem, then this is the course for you. It’s the perfect progression if you enjoyed the Level 2 course and will give you a really well-rounded and advanced set of mechanical skills that will prepare you for a lifelong career working with motorbikes.

You’ll develop diagnostic skills across a range of systems related to motorcycles. From faults with engines and transmission to chassis units, and everything in between, you’ll have the experience identify the problem and work out what needs to be done to fix it.

Like all of our automotive courses, you’ll be learning in specialist facilities where you use industry standard equipment. You’ll be taught by experienced professionals who know the automotive industry inside-out and can give you advice and guidance for your potential career options.

As an advanced Level 3 qualification, this course is about gearing you up for employment, out on the workshop. If you excel, you could be able to get a job directly and work your way up through the garage.

Alternatively, if you’re not quite ready to jump straight into employment, you could opt for an apprenticeship. This means you’ll still be out on the shop floor, earning money, but with more support from the College to help your development and progression.
