A lot of people assume that if anything goes wrong with their car, they need to see their mechanic. However, this is not always the case, in alot of cases they need an Auto Electrician.
In Australia, we have two main automotive trades
- Certificate III in Light Vehicle Mechanical Technology
- Certificate III in Automotive Electrical Technology
A mechanic will primarily service the mechanical parts of motor vehicles such as the engine (including servicing, oil changes), transmission (clutch, gearbox and differential) and the suspension systems (springs, steering, brakes, wheels, and tyres).
An Auto Electrician is specifically trained to install, maintain and diagnose faults, and repair electrical wiring and computer-based equipment in cars, trucks, caravans, trailers, earthmoving and agricultural equipment and boats. They assess vehicles using special diagnostic testing equipment.
All staff members at Accelerate Auto Electrics and Air Conditioning are qualified auto electricians or they are currently undertaking their apprenticeship to gain a Certificate III in Automotive Electrical Technology.
