Have you considered employing an apprentice?

Having an apprentice or two in your team can improve the productivity of your business and taking on a person that has completed a pre-apprenticeship is a simple way of taking on staff that are job ready and ready to hit the ground running.
Finding suitable staff for your automotive workshop has always been a challenge, in fact the automotive industry has experienced a skills shortage for a number of years.
So why not train your own staff to do the things you need them to do your way?
By taking on an apprentice you are helping address this skills shortage and are giving someone meaningful employment and the skills to help them start a lifelong career in the automotive industry.
Teaching an apprentice, sharing your years of knowledge of servicing, diagnosing, and repairing vehicles can be very rewarding.
Apprentices can work as part of a team servicing vehicles, preparing vehicles for pick up, keeping your work areas safe and clean and looking after your parts and stock levels.
After some experience and as they become more confident, they can go on to the more complex jobs in the workshop.

The program gives AAAA members access to their Certificate II pre-apprentice students that have the required skills and knowledge to start their automotive career as a productive member of your team.
