How long is a mechanic apprenticeship?
An automotive mechanic apprenticeship usually takes around four years, during which you'll develop hands-on, practical skills within a real workshop or worksite, and study a nationally accredited qualification.
All Australian Apprenticeships are competency-based, so the exact timing of your apprenticeship will be reflected in your ability to demonstrate your technical skills and completion of your Certificate III-level qualification.
There are a number of specialisations within mechanic apprenticeships, including:
- Heavy Vehicle Mechanic Apprenticeship
- Light Vehicle Mechanic Apprenticeship
- Diesel Fitter Apprenticeship
- Mobile Plant Mechanic Apprenticeship
Each of these mechanic apprenticeships is approximately 4 years in length.
