The automotive industry offers many different opportunities and career paths. If you have a passion for motorbikes, then specialising in motorcycle maintenance could be a great way to get into the industry – plus, it means you’ll get to do something you love, working with bikes day in, day out.
If you haven’t got any previous experience of mechanics or working with bikes, then this Level 1 course is the perfect place to start. It’s your first introduction to the automotive industry, where you’ll develop the essential skills you need as well as increasing your knowledge of motorcycles: how they’re built, the tools you need to work on them, and how to maintain them.
Being a motorcycle mechanic or technician is a hands-on job, so there’s plenty of practical work during this course. You’ll be working in our specialist workshop facilities, learning from professionals who have years of experience in the industry.
Upon completion, you could progress to the Level 2 Diploma, or consider employment.
