Motor Vehicle Apprenticeship

Motor Vehicle Apprenticeships normally last for two years during which time you will attend our Training Centre or a College one day per week for 2 years, following a Level 2 Diploma in Light Vehicle or Heavy Vehicle Maintenance Repair.  The remainder of your time is spent with your employer following the National Vocational Competance Qualification (N.V.Q) Level 2 and Functional Skills as laid down by the Institute of Motor Industry (IMI) and the City & Guilds, leading to a Certificate of Apprenticeship.
