Thank You for Your Interest in Training with the Auto Super Shoppe Automotive Academy

Auto Super Shoppes Ltd is a network of more than 95 of the very best workshops in the New Zealand Automotive Industry.

Auto Super Shoppe 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. Then, with a proven aptitude and a positive attitude fully supported to find employment within the industry.

Employment opportunities after graduation

Employment prospects in the industry are excellent, especially for Auto Super Shoppe Academy graduates. There is a New Zealand wide shortage of qualified technicians. Workshop owners understand how vital it is to take on and train apprentices. Most reputable workshops like to have at least one apprentice at all times.

In the event that you graduate and have not already been offered a position with one of the workshops you have been sent to for work experience, we will continue to work with you to seek employment.

Ongoing support will be offered where necessary with preparation of your CV, training with job interviews and introductions to prospective employers looking to take on an apprentice.
