Why train with us?
Auto Super Shoppes owners are looking for people who are passionate about the automotive industry and want to learn from the best in the business. This unique, accelerated 12-week course will prepare you for employment within the automotive industry . Successfully graduating at the end of the course, you will be a productive and valuable staff member to either an Auto Super Shoppes workshop or a nationwide parts company. After just 12 weeks of training, you will be guaranteed an offer of employment in the automotive industry..
Who will I be training with?
At the Auto Super Shoppes Automotive Academy you will be learning with individuals who are just as passionate and driven as you are. In this accelerated learning environment, you will not be held back by students who don’t want to put everything in to their future in the Automotive industry. You will be selected to attend the course because we are satisfied that you have what it takes and that you will turn up on time and be prepared. You will want to listen and be ready to learn from the best. You will not want to be held back in your education by distracted or disinterested students. Following that, you will be ready to continue your education while you earn.
What opportunities will be available to me at the end of the course?
Upon your successful completion of the 12-week course, you will be guaranteed an offer of a 90-day trial with an employer best suited to your ambitions and ability.
Your employer will be either an Auto Super Shoppe or a major automotive parts company. We will only place our graduates into automotive workshops who are looking to take on an apprentice after a short trial period. Auto Super Shoppes use MITO for their apprenticeship and training requirements. www.mito.org.nz
What is the cost?
The cost of the 12 week course is $8600 inc gst, plus course related costs – heavy duty black pants or shorts, safety boots, lap top.
Partial scholarships can be applied for and in some instances we are able to assist with finance.
Following the 12 week course, the graduates will have acquired the necessary skills to be useful and valuable employees. They will continue to learn and while doing so will be earning a wage. Compare this to a 9-11 month course offered through other technical institutes where you are not earning anything for the whole duration of the course, and you will see it works out to be a financially better opportunity.
This course is not eligible for "Fees Free Industry Training" but once you have graduated if you have not taken up the Fees Free offer elsewhere you will be entitled to claim your first two years of apprenticeship training under the Fees Free scheme.
There are only 10 places in each course. We want to make sure that we offer those places to the students who are most passionate about working in the automotive industry. Applying to be accepted into the Auto Super Shoppes Automotive Academy is the same as applying for a job. We want to get to know you. We want to know why you want to be part of this industry and what part of the industry most appeals to you. You will need to attend an interview with the Academy’s tutor and a member of the Auto Super Shoppes Management team. School leavers parents will also be required to attend to ensure they are 100% supportive of the students chosen career and will encourage them to achieve to the very best of their ability.
