Case for Change
The Case for Change for this project was developed in response to the following findings from industry consultation:
- AUR40216 Certificate IV in Automotive Mechanical Diagnosis and AUR50216 Diploma of Automotive Technology are currently underutilised. There is little incentive to complete Certificate IV and above qualifications within the automotive industry. Industry needs these skills to be delivered in a more accessible way.
- The elective bank of these qualifications can be re-structured to create the following advanced specialist elective groups: Mechanical Diagnosis, Automotive Electrical Systems, Heavy Commercial Vehicle Systems, Motorcycle Systems, Mobile Plant Systems, Light Vehicle Systems and Light Marine Systems. These groups can also be picked up as new skill sets.
- The above groupings can also be picked up as skill sets, they provide an accessible pathway for experienced technicians who are looking to upskill without having to complete a full qualification. This may assist in addressing the significant skills shortage of advanced/master technicians.
Qualifications in scope include:
- AUR40216 Certificate IV in Automotive Mechanical Diagnosis
- AUR50216 Diploma of Automotive Technology
PwC’s Skills for Australia is in the process of consulting with a wide range of stakeholders relevant to this sub-sector of the automotive industries.
