David Toole – Light Automotive Engineering

Formerly a student of Menzies College, David decided that an apprenticeship was his preferred career path and then needed to decide on which trade he wished to train in.

There are a variety of trade qualifications available in most trades and in automotive the first decision David made was that light automotive engineering appealed to him more than heavy automotive engineering.

David successfully applied to Southern Group Training for an apprenticeship in light automotive engineering and has been seconded to Rodgers Garage in Wyndham for his on job practical training.

In the workplace David will gain valuable practical skills to back up the theory knowledge needed to complete the various unit standards required to complete his Level 4 National Certificate. The theory components are taught via distance learning which requires David to complete a set of theory workbooks, usually one every fortnight, if he is to make good steady progress towards the completion of his qualification.
