Tafe South Australia, Automotive Technology


bye my name’s Matt sparrow I am grated to Australia from the UK in 2008 and I stirred a diploma of automotive technology at TAFE South Australia well my passion to become way too mechanics because I see motor mechanics being very similar to a doctor or surgeon and the engine of a Kai’s very much like the human heart if your heart not working properly your body’s not going to work as efficiently so you’re going to need a doctor or a surgeon to fix it and it’s the same with a motor vehicle if the engine is not working in need a mechanic to fix it that’s my my original chose to study at TAFE South Australia when I wanted to the same type of course in the UK be facilities were rather poor and so as consequence nine of people wants to training the industry and so the course was cancelled compared to the UK the facilities at tafe sa are excellent they’ve got all the current tools and equipment that you wouldn’t eat need in a modern workshop the main key to the course was hands-on practical skill development along with theory work and work placement within the automotive repair industry we were taught from start to finish how each individual components of motor vehicle works then how they work in the whole system of the motor vehicle we were also given the knowledge of how to maintain and repair all these components the core focus of the course was repair and service of engines steering suspension braking systems corn systems electrical systems fuel systems I’m calling systems course didn’t have teachers how to repair and service medal it also taught us the knowledge that you had made as I workshop manager or owner all aspects such as cosmic work invoicing budgeting any environmental issues such as disposal of hazardous waste such as used oil and coolant we were also taught about any legislative requirements that we would need to know being a work shop owner or manager such our doctor patient oral health and safety issues we were trying to be job ready and management ready I feel that the other lecturers that taught us on the course had real passion and drive to teach the subject because they’ve all worked with in a motor vehicle repair industry at one time or another my aim for the future i think is to get full time job within the motor vehicle repair industry and carry on with learning about the industry then maybe in a few years time i would like to open my own workshop where people can actually come fix the vehicles in their own time and if they i’ve got any problems I could use my knowledge but I’ve learnt only diploma course to assist them with any problems that they’ve got you
