Panel Beaters (aka Automotive Body Repairers) repair damage to metal, plastic and fibreglass bodywork on vehicles, as well as make and form vehicle panels. On-the-job training as a Panel Beater apprentice could see you working in a crash repairer, new or used car dealership, or even with a motor vehicle manufacturer.
Depending on the size of the organisation where you complete your on-the-job training Panel Beaters can go on to supervisor and management level positions. With experience, further training and qualifications there are also opportunities for Panel Beaters to move into the insurance industry as Loss Assessors.
This trade requires a three-year apprenticeship. MIGAS will facilitate your practical work placement with one of our quality host employers.
