Whether you’re a local business, a State or nation-wide organisation that’s selling, servicing, or maintaining vehicles, plant or mobile equipment, we can provide all your workforce and training requirements including skilled, qualified and motivated staff and apprentices.

Why Skillinvest?

Our experienced Apprenticeship Consultants have been supporting dealerships, shire councils, and fleet operators for over three decades, providing apprentices and trainees under group training employment arrangements. We can provide:

Automotive apprenticeships are available in:

  • automotive servicing – from small engines and outdoor power equipment, to light and heavy vehicles, road transport, mobile plant, and agricultural vehicles and plant.
  • body work – panel beating and spray painting.

Automotive Traineeships are available in:

  • vehicle sales
  • spare parts interpreting
  • management
  • frontline management

For young people interested in an automotive apprenticeship and career, we actively encourage them to start their training and skills development while at secondary school. Many students who transition successfully into full-time apprenticeships have started training while at school by completing VET in Schools, a structured work placement or school-based apprenticeship, or a combination of these.

Skillinvest is also a Registered Training Organisation (RTO Code 4192) delivering a range of nationally recognised Automotive certificates and qualifications. We can provide accredited training for your apprentices and existing workforce. Select from established courses or we can tailor a training package to suit your individual business needs. Our experienced trainers can come to your workplace or hold training at our vehicle training facilities in Dandenong or at Longerenong.

Services we offer:

  • Recruit and manage someone for your business
