“I enjoy my course. My tutors were supportive and showed us that if we needed help, they’d be there for us.”WILLIAM HOOK
Level 1 IMI Diploma in Transport Maintenance
Newcomers will learn what it’s like to work in the industry, while those with experience will benefit from advanced study to develop their skills.
All our programmes have been developed with the Institute of the Motor Industry (IMI) and EMTA Awards Limited (EAL), to help you gain the right skills and qualifications needed for employment.
There are trips to find out about different aspects of the industry and the many roles open to you, and you’re encouraged to enter competitions, such as WorldSkills or the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Automotive Challenge, to test your skills against other colleges and the military.
You could work in manufacturing, motorsport, design, parts, or the marine and engineering sectors, not to mention the hundreds of garages, dealerships and maintenance depots in Hampshire and beyond, that need well-trained mechanics and engineers. Experienced technicians can earn over £25,000 a year. Wages in the automotive industries start at around £15,000, rising to about £20,000.
