An apprentice Automotive Technician - Marine Light is involved in working mainly on pleasure craft with inboard or outboard motors, they can be trailer mounted and pull behind a car or moored in the river, ocean or a marina.

- perform scheduled maintenance services such as oil changes, lubrications and tune-ups
- advise customers on work performed, general vessel conditions and future repair requirements

This apprenticeship training program comprises on and off the job components, with training blocks of four weeks twice a year for 2.5 years. Block release times are negotiated with industry to minimize the impact on peak workplace production.

During the block release, all candidates undertake training and assessment and competency results are signed off in the training record book.

When the candidate returns to industry, learning is reinforced in the workplace to further develop the candidate’s skills and increase proficiency. The employer also signs off – that the candidate has undertaken tasks in the workplace.

The Certificate III in Marine Mechanical Technology is an apprenticeship: you must be employed in a training contract by an appropriate organisation to study. Please see the Apprenticeships section for more information.
